Question of the Day: Who will be elected?

The Hall of Fame announcement show begins at 2 p.m. ET today on MLB Network and Hall president Jeff Idelson will open the envelope at 3 p.m. and deliver the much-anticipated annual news. Anyone whose name is read will be inducted on July 22 in Cooperstown, N.Y., along with the late Ron Santo, who was elected via the Golden Era ballot.

Longtime Reds shortstop Barry Larkin is generally considered the likeliest candidate to reach the minimum 75 percent of votes required from baseball writers. He garnered 62.1 percent in last year's balloting, so he must jump 12.9 percent to gain election. Other prominent returnees are pitchers Jack Morris (fourth last year with 53.5 percent) and Lee Smith and first baseman Jeff Bagwell. Top newcomers include center fielder Bernie Williams, catcher Javy Lopez and outfielder Tim Salmon.
