Ten Years, No HOF Votes . . . Where is the love? – 2016 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, 2014 and 2015 results.  So now that the 2016 voting is completed, we have seven new “one and done” no-vote names to consider (Brad Ausmus, Troy Glaus, Mike Hampton, Luis Castillo, Randy Winn, Mike Lowell, Mark Grudzielanek).  So here are the updated leaders (it turns out none of the 2016 crowd crashed the leaderboard):
