The St. Louis Post-Dispatch appears to have jumped the gun on Hall of Fame voting results — and they don't have final totals — but it looks like there's no surprise: Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken are in ... and, obviously, Mark McGwire is out. (And likely not close.) Actual announcement in about five minutes.

UPDATE: Final totals are in:

Cal Ripken: 98.5 percent
Tony Gwynn: 97.6 percent

Falling just short: Goose Gossage, at 71.2 percent. You need 75 percent to make it. Next year, Goose.

As for Mark McGwire ... he's at 23 percent. That's enough to keep him on the ballot next year.
