Colorado Rockies Hall of Fame

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

With all the commotion going on about the Hall of Fame, I thought it would be fun to create our very own, Colorado Rockies Hall of Fame. Here's my idea for how to go about it. This year, we vote on all retired ex-Rockies, with anyone receiving over 75% of the vote getting inducted to the Rockies Hall of Fame. This year, being as there are SOO many names on the ballot, I say there are no limits to how many players you can vote for, and in future years, the limit should be 5-10, decreasing over time. Any player who does not receive a vote falls off of the ballot. I think a reasonable deadline would be Friday the 24th, but that's totally up for grabs. For your vorting ease, I've established a list of a little over 40 guys to consider (alphabetical by first name):

Aaron Cook
Andres Galarraga
Armando Reynoso
Bill Swift
Brian Bohanon
Brian Fuentes
Bruce Ruffin
Byung-Hyun Kim
Charles Johnson
Charlie Hayes
Curtis Leskanic
Dante Bichette
Dave Veres
David Nied
Ellis Burks
Eric Young
Garrett Atkins
Jason Jennings
Jay Payton
Jeff Cirillo
Jerry Dipoto
Joe Girardi
Joe Kennedy
John Thomson
Josh Fogg
Justin Speier
Kaz Matsui
Kevin Ritz
Larry Walker
Marvin Freeman
Mike DeJean
Neifi Perez
Pedro Astacio
Preston Wilson
Shawn Chacon
Steve Reed
Todd Helton
Vinny Castilla
Walt Weiss

Feel free to vote for others as well. Next years HOF should include Jeff Francis and Brad Hawpe as new eligibles as well. I have no official guidelines on what the Hall of Fame should be, or who should get in. If you want some ideas, here's the Rockies' Hall of Stats page.

If others want to run this differently, please let me know, but if there's enough interest, I think this would be really cool. Anyways, please, do vote!

Also, for some random info on the potential construction on a theoretical Hall of Fame, here's some things I may use to shape my ideas:

As best as I can tell (meaning with 10 minutes of research), there have been around 18,000 players to ever play the game. There are roughly 240 players in the Hall of Fame, meaning 1.3% of players have been elected into the Hall, with more recent players having a tougher time getting elected. There are around 650 total Rockies players, meaning a similar Rockies HOF would have around 8-9 players. Positionally, almost 30% of the HOF is made up by pitchers, and 10% each by SS and CF's. Conversely, 3B's and C's make up only 5% each.

Eat. Drink. Be Merry. But the above FanPost does not necessarily reflect the attitudes, opinions, or views of Purple Row's staff (unless, of course, it's written by the staff [and even then, it still might not]).
