Default Re: baseball Hall-of-Fame

i hear what you're saying but now they're talking about getting "B" list players such as Raines, Jack Morris and others in. I'm sorry.....decent, long careers? Maybe. Hall of FAME? No. I'm not sure Blyleven should have even got in.
They've turned the "hall" from being a place that the TRULY great players go....to where if you just have a long career and put up some decent stats, you're in.
I don't know how you can have a "hall of fame" with those kind of people in......but great players such as Pete Rose, McGwire, Palmeiro, and the coming future denials of A-Rod, Bonds, Clemens etc. are not in the hall. I've looked at all the angles and it just don't make sense. the on-field accomplishments just can't be denied.
Pete should definitely be in there, no question. This is one of those things that will be debated until the end of time, but i'm definitely on the "Rose" faction.
