Now if they would only lift the ban on Jackson as well. Almost a century has passed for ****'s sake.
I'm sure you already know this, but in case anyone still has misconceptions about Cooperstown, the Hall of Fame and Museum is about 90% museum, and when I was there in 2008, there were displays/memorabilia featuring Jackson, Rose, Bonds, McGwire, and many others, moreso than dozens of players who actually have Hall of Fame plaques.

Wonder how Schilling feels now, after he figured he was goin' to ride the backlash against Clemens, Bonds, Sosa et al. into the Hall.

btw I love the Hall of famers that are saying they wouldn't go to the HOF ceremony if a cheater was elected. Um isn't Gaylord Perry technically a cheater? Wonder what they would say to that

Sucks how a guy like Biggio,Morris don't get in the HOF this year.


And a guy like Julio Franco, Kenny Lofton aren't gonna be in future HOF ballots. Both guys who were like .001-.002 away from hitting a career average of .300, not gonna be on future ballots.
Albert Belle is already off the ballot. I think they need to stick with 75% as an entry number but they need to expand the voting base.

Re: 2013 Hall of Fame Ballot Discussion

I love baseball, I truly do. It's my favorite sport. But the Hall of Fame process they use absolutely enfuriates me. Sure keep out Bonds and Clemens. But what the hell did Biggio, Piazza, and Schilling do?

The guy who voted for Sele MUST be the same guy who voted for Bret Boone a couple of years ago. Either he adores the 2001 Mariners or he took part in some shady deals to get a HOF ballot.

I commend the BBWAA for showing high high character and integrity by not voting in the people that were the best of their generation. I'll be damned if people criticize them. The BBWAA with their actions today are upholding the purity that is the Baseball Hall of Fame and their fine fine organization.
