Let's begin with a complaint: I really don't like Hall of Fame ballots that feature different kinds of candidates. Take the Today's Game Ballot. This is the newest incarnation of the Hall of Fame Veteran's Committee -- these days it is a 16-person panel, and they will vote on a ballot with 10 people on it. Any of the nominees that get 12 votes (or 75%) will get elected to the Hall of Fame. It seems straightforward enough.
