Default Mariano Rivera 100% on HOF ballots

Saw where Mariano Rivera got 100% of the votes to get in HOF, He is very deserving of this. Probably go down as best closer of ALL TIME.

However felt there were some others that should have got 100% vote that did not

Nolan Ryan first one that comes to mind in lifetime but some others like Willie Mays, Cobb, Ken Griffey Jr right off top of my head

Nolan Ryans winning percentage was not very good. But agree some others should have got 100%.

It is pretty hard to get 100 percent. I find it amazing that Mariano did that even though he is super great!

Glad for Rivera he was truly the best I've ever seen at closing a game. His cutter was a broken bat waiting to happen. His song for entering the game Enter Sandman was fitting

Ryan pitched for the woeful Gene Autry California Angels for years, Ryan's 3.19 ERA was outstanding.

That interesting in that at the time Huston was in the NL were there is no designated hitter, Huston was pretty woeful then also.
