Andre Dawson Sole Cooperstown Inductee; Blyleven Falls Five Votes Short

Getting better for Bert, but he's only got two more shots at it from the BBWAA, as this is his 13th year of eligibility. Fortunately for Bert, the vote totals make it increasingly likely that he'll get over the top in year 14.

Jay Jaffe, my personal gold standard of Hall eligibility, calls Andre Dawson "not ... worthy of a Hall of Fame vote", largely because of the brief duration of his career peak and the overall low OBP: "his walk totals certainly don't reflect the notion that he was a feared hitter".
