This is garbage. You're either a HOFer or you're not. You're telling me you'd leave him off your ballot on principle because God forbid he gets a higher percentage vote than someone else?
This mindset is a big part of the reason why the HOF is such a joke. 100% or 0%, Rivera is the greatest relief pitcher this game has ever seen. Nothing changes that. I hope he decides to make one more run at it next year so he can go out on his terms. But if that's truly it, I thank him for all he's done. Truly remarkable career.
