The Hall of Fame
Tomorrow, baseball’s Hall of Fame will announce the results of the current round of elections. In honor of a vote that will almost certainly disappoint me, I thought I would recap my various Hall of Fame pieces, in case anyone is by chance interested:
The Best Player Not in the Hall of Fame: Lou Whitaker
An Overlooked former Negro Leaguer: Minnie Minoso
My Personal Hall of Famer: Roy Smalley
Tomorrow, we can discuss what happened. Any predictions? Stick them in the comments, please. My guess? Bert Blyleven and Andre Dawson slip in with more than 75% but less than 80. None of the new players are elected, though Alomar comes within 10% of making it. Controversy ensues.
