Take a deep breath. When Baseball Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson opens the envelope next January, there will be a few new inductees to report.

Greg Maddux will be elected. Tom Glavine and Frank “The Big Hurt” Thomas will more than likely be elected. Craig Biggio will more than likely be elected. What happened this year, when no one received the needed 75 percent of the vote, was utterly aberrational. The process itself is fine.
