MLB Network Radio calls out Benitez voter

Shortly after the results of the BBWAA Hall of Fame voting were revealed, Casey Stern (@CaseyStern) of  MLB Network Radio took to Twitter to call out one particular writer.

Incensed by the fact that Craig Biggio lost out on this year’s Hall of Fame bid by two votes, while former relief pitcher Armando Benitez received one, Stern begged the public to help him find the one who voted for Benitez.

Armando Benitez spent 15 seasons in Major League Baseball, playing for Baltimore, New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Florida, and finishing in Toronto. He pitched in 762 games, all in relief, posting a 3.13 ERA with a 40-47 record. He is a two-time All-Star and finished 23rd in MVP voting in 2004.
