Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and Frank Thomas were elected to the 2014 class of the Baseball Hall of Fame by the BBWAA.
Maddux was a near-unanimous choice, garnering 97.2 percent of the vote. He was somehow left off 16 ballots. The four-time Cy Young Award winner and 18-time Gold Glove Award winner won 355 games over his 23-year career to go along with a 3.16 ERA. Glavine, who was on 91.9 percent of the ballots, was a two-time Cy Young Award winner and won 305 games during his career while posting a 3.54 ERA. Thomas, one of the game's most dominant sluggers during the 90s, received 83.7 percent of the vote. The two-time MVP produced a .301/.419/.555 lifetime batting line to go along with 521 home runs. Craig Biggio narrowly missed the 75 percent threshold by finishing on 74.8 percent of the ballots, but he'll at least carry some momentum in 2015. Mike Piazza, Jack Morris, Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines, Roger Clemens, and Barry Bonds rounded out the top part of the ballot. Wed, Jan 8, 2014 02:01:00 PM

Greg Maddux and Frank Thomas headline the first-time eligible players for the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame ballot.

The BBWAA announced the full list of players on Tuesday afternoon. There are 19 new candidates in all, including notables Tom Glavine, Mike Mussina, and Jeff Kent. Craig Biggio, Mike Piazza, Curt Schilling, Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Alan Trammell, Jeff Bagwell, Sammy Sosa, Edgar Martinez, Tim Raines and Jack Morris are among the players who remain eligible for election in 2014, so it's an absolutely loaded ballot. Results will be announced in January, with Maddux the closest there is to a sure thing.

Free agent Greg Maddux announced his retirement.

The end of an era. Maddux, 42, finishes his career eighth all-time with 355 wins and 10th with 3,371 strikeouts. He won four Cy Youngs, four ERA titles and 18 Gold Gloves (assuming the voters don't simply default to him again there next year). There's probably never going to be a player enshrined in the Hall of Fame unanimously, but Maddux will come as close as anyone ever has.

Free agent Greg Maddux will announce his retirement Monday at the baseball winter meetings in Las Vegas.

The future first-ballot Hall of Famer makes his home in Vegas, so he doesn't have far to go. Agent Scott Boras confirmed the decision on Friday.

The New York Post quotes agent Scott Boras as saying Greg Maddux is nearly certain to retire.

That was the guess going into the offseason, but it's still sad news if true. "He hasn't made a final decision, but for now it is doubtful he will play (any longer)," Boras said at the GM meetings. "As it stands now, he is not going to play."

Greg Maddux earned career win No. 355 by limiting the Giants to one run in six innings on Saturday.

In what could have been his final ever appearance on a major league mound, Maddux passed Roger Clemens and moved into eighth place on the all-time wins list. He's second to Warren Spahn (363) amongst post-WWII pitchers. Maddux is slated to be the Dodgers' fourth starter in the postseason, but there's no guarantee the Dodgers will use one in the NLDS or even that they'll get to a Game 4. His plans for 2009 are up in the air at the moment.

Greg Maddux was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday with the Dodgers having clinched the NL West.

He's wiped out from having thrown 68 and 61 pitches in his last two starts. Eric Stults will pitch in his place against the Padres. We're guessing that Maddux will pitch at some point during the weekend. He's currently at 354 career wins in what could be his final season.

Greg Maddux tossed seven scoreless innings versus the Rockies on Sunday in a game the Dodgers would eventually lose 1-0.

Maddux struck out three and allowed just two baserunners, both on singles. Maddux was 1-3 in four starts since joining the Dodgers and hadn't pitched that well with a 5.96 ERA. However, the club got hot without him and when Maddux finally did what they were looking for the bats went silent. Even with the loss the Dodgers are four up in the NL West.

Greg Maddux held the Padres to two runs over 5 2/3 innings as the Dodgers went on to win 5-2 on Monday night.

Maddux yielded a run in the first when the Padres led off with three straight hits, but he settled in over the next several innings while the Dodgers built a 5-1 lead. Maddux was pulled in the sixth after surrendering back-to-back doubles, but his overall line for the day was impressive: six hits, four strikeouts, no walks. It was his first win in three starts since coming over to the Dodgers, though he hasn't been able to complete six innings in an of those games.

Greg Maddux allowed four runs - two earned - in 5 1/3 innings to take the loss in his second appearance for the Dodgers on Wednesday.

One of the unearned runs scored on an error by Maddux. He's now given up 11 runs in 11 innings since joining the Dodgers. The team is 1-8, including their current six-game losing streak. Maddux will improve, but a dramatic recovery shouldn't be expected: Maddux had a 5.28 away from Petco over the past two seasons.

Greg Maddux surrendered seven earned runs over 5 2/3 innings and took the loss Friday in his debut with the 2008 Dodgers.

Maddux allowed nine hits while walking one. He served up two multi-run homers and lasted just 76 pitches. The Dodgers should expect a little better out of Maddux. Hopefully he can please them somewhat when he faces the Nationals next week. As of now, he's 6-10 with a 4.25 ERA.

Greg Maddux will make his first start for the Dodgers on Friday night in Philadelphia.

In addition to getting Maddux, the Dodgers also acquired about $1.3 million from the Padres, leaving them on the hook for only $900,000 of his remaining salary. The team will send Eric Stults to the minors to make space on the 25-man roster, and Scott Proctor will be put on the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster.

Dodgers acquired RHP Greg Maddux for two players to be named later or cash considerations from the San Diego Padres.

Maddux was 6-3 with a 3.30 ERA in 12 starts with the Dodgers in the second half of 2006. So far this year, he's 6-9 with a 3.99 ERA for the Padres, but that comes with a 5.75 ERA outside of Petco.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the Padres will receive two players to be named later from the Dodgers in exchange for Greg Maddux.

Acquiring Maddux in mid-2006 cost the Dodgers shortstop Cesar Izturis and Maddux went 6-3 with a 3.30 ERA in 12 starts. With Brad Penny likely out for the season he'll slide into the rotation after going 6-9 with a 3.99 ERA for the Padres.

The Los Angeles times reports the Dodgers have acquired Greg Maddux from the Padres.

Maddux cleared waivers, but Los Angeles was the only place he'd agree to go. It's unknown what Los Angeles gave up. He's just 6-9, and while that comes with a 3.99 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP, Maddux has a 5.75 ERA away from Petco. Still, he was 6-3 with a 3.30 ERA pitching for the Dodgers back in 2006. He'll likely fill the rotation spot of Brad Penny.
