Congrats to Cal Ripken Jr. & Tony Gwynn


Mark McGwire didn't meet the standard.

This was about as much a lock as you're gonna see for HOF voting. No surprises on this vote at all, and I suspect Mac will make it in year three or four. Of course much of it will depend upon who else is eligible at that time.

Solid class. Still wish Don Mattingly would get in.

Gossage failing to get in is ridiculous, and Dave Concepcion getting one more vote than Alan Trammell is just more evidence of the collective incompetence of the BBWAA.

And since I'm a Jim Rice fan, seeing his percentage drop pretty much wrecked my day.

Jime Rice should be in for sure and for certain in my opinion. Alan Trammell also should be in. Now, lets talk about Charlie Hustle......Make St. Bart Giamatti roll over in his grave in put Pete in!

i am a huge fan of the way Pete played baseball and what he did on the field, but the guy compromised the integrity of the game, was caught, lied, and has never been truly apologetic for it. The gimmicks of signing the baseballs with the betting theme...that guy is a disgusting slimeball and doesn't belong anywhere near the Hall.

Really, you mean like nice fellas like Ruth, Cobb, who did everything under the sun up to and including killing another human being?

i know, i know....there are guys as shady as Pete in the Hall, but to be honest....they either weren't caught or they were at least contrite when they were.

I have told this story before but it is worth repeating. I was sitting near the on deck circle at Wrigley (first base side) and Gwynn was watching the game intently. My friend and I kept saying congrats Tony and good luck on your 3,000th. He would not turn around if his life depended on it. He was so focused on watching the pitcher. Now before you say of course he wouldn't turn around, I can tell you of at least 20 different players who have responded to both my compliments and taunts during games. Gwynn is what is good about baseball. A guy who busted his ass and respected the game.

Gwynn is one of those guys it is hard to dislike. Even when he would beat the Flubbies.

Ty Cobb contrite? Are you serious....have you ever read his book or read anything about him? He was about the least contrite SOB on the planet and I don't think Ruth had many regrets either. Fact of the matter is those guys played in an era where writers looked the other way and that kind of behavior was ignored. Outside of Shoeless Joe, which don't even get me started on that one, Pete is one of the most glaring ommissions to the Hall.
