Lost in the hubbub of the Curt Schilling talk is the fact that other former Phillies were on the 2021 Hall of Fame ballot.

Shane Victorino is a first-time candidate but received 0% of the vote, as you can see here from the spreadsheet with the official voter information shared by the BBHOF:

Victorino was one of five first-ballot players to receive zero votes, a group that also includes Nick Swisher, A.J. Burnett, Michael Cuddyer, and Dan Haren. There was a larger group of first-time guys who were up for nomination, and the player who did the best in the voting was Mark Buehrle, who finished with an 11% final number.

Voting rules stipulate that players who do not reach 5% are removed from the ballot, so that’s it for Victorino. We didn’t expect him in the Hall, but this will officially end his chances. Burnett, too. He’s a former Phillie, even if he was only here for a season.

RE: Bobby Abreu, he only got 8.1%, but he gets to stay on the ballot for a third year. Other guys who just made the cut and kept their chances alive include Tim Hudson and Torii Hunter.

But whatever. Victorino is a world champion… a world fucking champion. All we need to remember is this:
