Ten Years, No HOF Votes . . . Where is the love? – 2015 Update

After the 2012 Hall of Fame ballot results were announced, I thought it would be cool to take a historical look at those players who were on the standard BBWAA ballot at least once, and didn’t receive even one vote.  I presented the respective “career category leaders” within that group.

I did this again with the 2013 and 2014 results.  So now that the 2015 voting is completed, we have seven new “one and done” names to consider (Brian Giles, Rich Aurilia, Eddie Guardado, Jason Schmidt, Jermaine Dye, Cliff Floyd, Tony Clark).  So here are the updated leaders:
