Bagwell appears likely for election this year with Raines and Hoffman possible. Clemens and Bonds may gain but still won't overcome the PED stigma with enough old school voters in the BBWAA.. Curt Schilling gets penalized for his personality.  Pudge and Manny should do well the first year on the ballot but neither is elected. Vlad and Posada get enough votes to stay on the ballot for next year.
