Published Votes Are Bad News For Rice

Over at Home Run Derby they have calculated the votes for all baseball writers that have published their picks for the Hall of Fame. While the list does not include everyone it does show how some of the voting is going. Among the reporters that published their votes Jim Rice was on 64.5% of them, he needs to be on 75% to get into the Hall. It will be tough for Rice to make up the difference in the remaining votes but he still has a chance.

UPDATE: Baseball Think Factory has Rice receiving a higher percentage of published votes (82%) when they count partial ballots.
