Default Players Eligible for 2018 Hall of Fame Ballot

I thought it was time to post about this thread since we're a month away from the vote and I believe 2 months away from the announcement results.

Now this will only cover the players that are on the writers' ballot.

The ones that are marked in green will be on the ballot for the first time.

The ones that are marked in red are in danger of losing their chance to remain on the ballot due to being on the ballot for 14-15 years except for in the case of recent additions (prior to the 2015 election) who will only remain on the ballot for 10 years.

NOTE: due to a BB coding error I won't be using colors to denote which ones are first year and which ones are on the ballot for the last time.

NOTE: A player must be named on at least 75% of the ballots to be elected.
Players will be removed from future ballots if they are named on fewer than 5% of ballots.
Players will also be removed from future ballots if they've been on the ballot for 15 years (changed to 10 years prior to the 2015 election)
