It’s that time of year. The results of Hall of Fame voting will be announced by the BBWAA on January 24, 2018.

Longtime Angel Vladimir Guerrero is a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame this year, as evidenced by his 94.7% of all publicly released votes, according to Ryan Thibodaux’s Hall of Fame tracker.

Of all candidates to be inducted, Vlad has gained the most votes on publicly available ballots.

In last year’s voting, Guerrero had 72.0% of publicly available votes, finishing with an actual 71.7% in the voting. With nearly 95 percent of publicly available votes this year, it would take a catastrophe for Vlad to not receive the 75 percent threshold required for induction when results are released next Wednesday.

As the days continue to roll on, the induction of one of Anaheim’s most beloved stars becomes more and more likely. Vladimir Guerrero will most likely be inducted to Cooperstown this year.
