Will it be Barry Bonds? Buster Posey? Madison Bumgarner? Marco Luciano?

Hello and happy Tuesday.

On Monday, the 2021 Hall of Fame ballots were announced. Six former Giants are on the ballot: newcomers Tim Hudson, Barry Zito, and LaTroy Hawkins, and repeat candidates Barry Bonds, Jeff Kent, and Omar Vizquel.

The odds and trends point to no Giants being inducted into the Hall of Fame this year, so I’m left wondering who will be the next Giant to join the prestigious list of inductees?

Will it be Barry Bonds, who somehow got just 60.7% of the vote last year (75% is required), his eighth year on the ballot? Will it come later, in the form of Buster Posey, who isn’t a sure thing but has a strong case?

Will it be someone currently in the farm, like Marco Luciano or Heliot Ramos?

Give us your predictions. I’m going to go the painfully optimistic route and say that voters get their [redacted] together and vote in Bonds.
