Leagues without any votes, as it did last year, something extremely unusual and surprising: BLANK SHEET!

We do not know exactly why this man does this, but according to a message posted on his Twitter account, we have a small explanation why he did not vote for anyone for the HOF in class 2022.
“I just sent in my 2022 Hall of Fame ballot with no selections. I skipped the usual new PED suspects and, at his request, Curt Schilling. Strongly regarded Scott Rolen, but determined Rolen doesn’t compare to the elite third baseman already in Cooperstown, ”Steve Marcus said after his blank ballot.
It is good to remember that each voter has 10 votes per ballot and, of course, he is free to make it public as well as not to and to use the ten votes or not, but this journalist made it public despite being blank, is it strange? .
I just submitted my 2022 Hall of Fame ballot with no selections. I omitted the new and usual PED suspects and, at his own request, Curt Schilling. Strongly considered Scott Rolen, but determined Rolen does not compare with the elite third basemen already in Cooperstown. #HOF
