Ever wanted to make a difference in the Hall of Fame vote? Now you can! Kinda.

I feel like there are more questions than answers about the Hall of Fame. So instead of asking you to abide by the standards by which I'd judge a player, or instead of asking you who you think will be elected to the 2015 Hall of Fame class, I'm simply going to put the onus directly on your shoulders. As a community, we're going to decide who we think is worthy of induction.

In the interest of full disclosure: no, I don't have a vote. And nobody has been so daring as to agree to vote based off of the results we provide here. I just want to see who we, as a community, would all to pass through those doors.

That's the entire ballot. Note the number of times each player has been on the ballot, as they come off after 15 years, as well as the percentage garnered in the past, since players receiving less than 5% of the vote drop off as well. I ask that you keep your number of votes to ten, since that's the way the BWAA currently runs things, although you certainly don't have to vote for ten players.

So: what matters to you? Overall career value via rWAR? Championships? Individual awards? How much of a monster the player was in your memory? You decide. We'll run this vote through Friday and see how it turns out.

Who would you vote to induct into the 2015 Hall of Fame?
