Buster Olney tweet on HOF @Buster_ESPN I've said for awhile: best HOF solution is take vote from the writers & put the best players in HOF -- and put 'roid info on the plaque. 26 minutes ago I couldn't agree more. Take the vote away from the writers.

Buster Olney Tweets on Oakland closer Andrew Bailey ESPN_BBTN Athletic's closer Andrew Bailey left todays game vs the Indians with an apparent arm injury. #mlb #athletics 19 minutes ago via Twitter for Android from Bristol, CT Retweeted by Buster_ESPN and 6 others Who is the 2nd in line in Oakland? Brian Fuentes? UPDATE from Jane Lee at MLB.com It's really hard to speculate on the extent of Andrew Bailey's injury right now. The A's announced he left the game with elbow discomfort, but Geren said after the game he "felt tightness in the forearm area." He'll be checked out as soon as possible, though Geren wasn't certain if he'd be examined by a doctor today or tomorrow. The A's skipper said Bailey had been experiencing normal soreness that creeps up during Spring Training, but that they believed he was ready to go today. Geren also noted that his velocity was good - said he even hit 94. But, "anytime you see someone leave the game with tightness, it's concerning." Hopefully more answers will come shortly. http://twitter.com/buster_espn

Nationals VP of Player Development Bob Boone on Stephen Strasburg According to Mr. Boone, the right-hander, "...feels great. He's just on flat ground right now, and we're gonna be as cautious as we possibly could for anybody, and we expect him back maybe August, mid-August." Sounds like he will be back to full strength in 2012. He could come cheap in 2011 keeper league drafts. www.federalbaseball.com

Bryce Harper Up in 2012?? Thomas Boswell, Washington Post The Nats' decision to make a major free agent splash this winter, rather than next, is probably connected to Harper's strong showing in the Arizona Fall League. Only the rare Mickey Mantle or Ken Griffey Jr., has proved to be big league ready at age 19. But the Nats have opened the door for the possibility. Wow. I had the thought that Harper would be up in mid-2012, but this leads me to believe that he could start the season in Washington, and possibly in centerfield. I will post something on this on Minor League Ball on Sunday. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/12/15/AR2010121506833.html

Top Guys In the Minors Kevin Goldstein, ESPN Bryce Harper, OF Washington Nationals No pro debut is more anticipated than that of Harper, who remains possibly the most hyped prospect in the history of the game. The terrifying thing about him is this: from his amateur career, to his one year of junior college baseball to his brief stint in the Arizona Fall League, he's exceeded nearly unrealistic expectations at every opportunity, so the same could occur at Low-A Hagerstown, which is Harper's most likely starting point. Forty home runs is hardly out of the question. 40 Homers this year? Where does he end the season? High A or AA?
