I have little doubt that the BBWAA will let baseball down once again come January, though.



Yep. But hey, you can go to the HOF and see Jim Rice!!!!!!!!!!


Still a better player than, say, Enos slaughter.

I think what keeps Lofton out is the fact that he never poured ketchup on his sock then went out and stole a bunch of bases during a playoff game.

I would vote for:

Julio Franco and Edgar Martinez - should never have retired - combined 45 years in the mlb

Shawn Soylent Green - if he wears the BJ uniform to the hall

Fred McGriff - crime dog always classy

Jose Mesa - maybe she shows up

Jack Morris - it's time

Tim Rock Raines - if he wears his expo uni to the hall

Aaron Sele - not a chance in hell - I think that he took steroids

Larry Walker - he's not in already? wtf? Canadian hating bible-thumping hicks obviously have too many votes

Rondell White - lighting in his wrists, should go in with Hard Hittin Mark Whitten

Might be out of luck there. That photo isn't Jose Mesa, it's the late Jose Lima.

Not voting for Bonds, Clemens, etc is just asinine. If MLB cannot police its own game competently (and in its entire history it hasnt), then the voters should not be trying to police the Hall.

If a guy tested positive and was sanctioned by MLB, fine keep him out.
If he admitted to cheating in some way, fine keep him out.
Otherwise quit being so self righteous and just use the numbers to determine who is getting in.

If it's obvious it's probably true.

Results announced 9 January USA time.
This'll be either a snark storm because Barry isn't in, or a Helen Lovejoy storm if he's in first attempt.

Either way load up your twitters O:-)
