While the official results of the 2013 BBWAA Hall of Fame vote won't be announced until Jan. 9, Baseball Think Factory is thankfully going to the trouble of adding up the publicly disclosed ballots. Thus far, they've turned up 67 such ballots, which, based on 2012 voting totals, means that 11.5 percent of "precincts" have reported.

Here's the latest update (reminder: 75 percent needed for election, 5 percent needed to remain on ballot in the following year) ...

70.1 - Biggio
68.7 - Bagwell
65.7 - Raines
62.7 - J. Morris
61.2 - Piazza
50.7 - Clemens
49.3 - Bonds
34.3 - L. Smith
34.3 - Schilling
34.3 - Trammell
31.3 - E. Martinez
19.4 - D. Murphy
17.9 - McGriff
16.4 - McGwire
14.9 - Raffy
13.4 - L. Walker
11.9 - S. Sosa
6.0 - Mattingly
———————————
3.0 - D. Wells
3.0 - Bernie Williams
3.0 - Lofton
3.0 - P. Rose (write-in)

As you can see, if paces hold, then Veterans Committee choices Deacon White, Jacob Ruppert and Hank O'Day won't have any BBWAA counterparts to keep their spectral presences company. This would also mean no relief for what's shaping up to be a serious ballot bottleneck in the coming years.

The BBTF mechanism is a rough estimate. But for most candidates, it has been accurate within a few percentage points in past years. These figures are updated frequently, so check back in at the link above for a thumbnail idea of the final results.
