I think it'll be Rickey and Rice, with Blyleven once again getting screwed for reasons only God could possibly fathom.

Dawson probably deserves entry (as does Lee Smith, now that the reliever anxiety has been broken by Goose), but I don't think there will be more than two players getting voted in at a time for a good long while.

And the rest of that list contains so many names that have no business even being there it boggles the mind. I mean c'mon! Jessie Orosco?

Dan Plesac?
Jay Bell?


TC said...

Exactly. Merely being an active player for ten years, and subsequently retired for five, should not automatically get a player on the ballot. Likewise, the only reason I can think of for the 20 year limit, following which the player gets handed off to the Veteran's Committee, is because the writers are too young (read: stupid) to know those players impact, and would only judge them by their stats.

The system is broke and needs to be fixed.

Case in point: Blyleven. If he doesn't get in through the writers (I think he only has four more years), he will be an almighty LOCK the minute the vets see his name on their ballot.

I'm smellin' what you're steppin' in, big dog. ESPN made a comparison using their 'all time' status as of today!. What udder tools. Bert was #3 ALL TIME in K's when he stopped lacing them up. If he goes to the Vet Cmte then he's a lock. Same goes for Rice and Dawson.

TC said...

If Rice don't earn it now, RIGHT NOW, Lupica is a fucking dead man.

I know where he and his douchie friends drink before theu retreat to Conn.

And there are eight guys who I know, and have bended an elbow with loose lipped shits, who are gonna see me doin' my "I make "Bat Shit Crazy" look like fingerpaint."

I jacked my HOF money for this year because I wanna fucking SCREAM at those dopes who do teh voting.

El Jefe said...

I throw Lupica under the bus with Joe Morgan and Tim McCarver...
