That’s what detractors of baseball say. Well, today they are literally quite right as no one got elected to the Hall this ballot. That’ll teach Biggio.

  • I think it’s kind of sad really.

  • Oh, it’s not, really. “Take the long view,” proponents of the current situation advise. Let it simmer a year. Don’t worry, it will all be resolved as a matter of Nature’s Course, which happens to be a laxative on sale now next to adult absorbent undergarments at your local grocer.

    Yes, it is totally sad.

  • the problem is that baseball can’t or won’t decide what these honors represent, or what the criteria is…mvp, cy young, rookie of the year, hall of fame…i’m lifting a bit from jason stark, espn, but he’s said the closest to what i feel about the hall of fame…it’s a museum of baseball history, good and bad, not a shrine to baseball saints…truth be told, there probably aren’t any…i loved mickey mantle as a kid, although his best years were behind him when i was still pooping in my diapers, but the rumors about him were a bit unflattering…ty cobb was not a nice person, or so the story goes…yep, the steroids era was a horrible blemish on my favorite sport, something i will never forgive it (them) for…but, it happened, and to pretend it didn’t is, i don’t know, naive?…the shame is to shut out players based on suspicion and allegation in lieu of fact…slippery slope
