Bagwell and the HOF?

Postby BigLebowski » Fri Dec 31, 2010 5:44 pm

Bags was always one of my favorite players, and I ran across these two articles this afternoon. Good read. He's flew so far under the radar ( 3 MVP's I know ) people don't realize how good he really was.

And a nice counter to a NO vote for Bags.

I'm one of those silly guys that thinks if you deserve to get into the Hall you should go in on the first ballot. Those voters who think only the holy deserve to get in on their first ballet are idiots. But its the system we have so I say he gets in the 2nd?

Anybody that is top 10 all time at their position, is a HOF.

Jon Heyman had a terrible ballot.
He voted Jack Morris, no Bagwell.

I could care less about the HOF.
I am getting a kick out of the saber scribes constantly kicking dirt via twitter on the MSM for the Bagwell/Steroids crap though.

No sir, I don't like it.

Probably not this year, i'd think Byleven and Alomar get most of the votes and might be the only ones elected into the hall. One thing you have to consider in all of this is Mark McGwire, if Bagwell gets in than McGwire should get in also despite more evidence of steroid use.

Bagwell wasn't good enough to be excluded from the HOF.
