    Both should make it first ballot. I don't get the we will vote you in next year. You are HOFer or you're not.

    If only one gets in though Piazza is a top 3 - 5 all time catcher IMO.
    If you can read this your driving to close

    How exactly is Larkin going to make it in first ballot?

    I don't think Larkin should be a first ballot.

    Should would indicate a future possibility. Should of means in the past. Since Larkin didn't make it first ballot you should of said should of...or being a Philly fan at least said 'Brother shouldda"

    If Larkin is in, why should Alan Trammel not? Similar players at same positions. Both with some post season success.

    To answer the question......Piazza.

    Indianapolis Colts: Good draft and off-season so far.
    Looking for new NBA team to cheer for
    Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, free agency begins this week.

    Agreed,

    I don't know how after 15th years on the ballot Jim Rice finally became worthy of being a HOFer. That clown should of never gotten in. If it wasn't for the ESPN/Boston propaganda he wound't of either.

    I don't think of Rice as a clown - that little trip into the LF stands to get his hat back in NY should remove him from clownhood forever.

    OTOH, he has no business in the HOF says the active in PSD BRS fan that saw him play the most. Dwight Evans was a better player for instance, and he's not in.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    Trammell is my choice for the current living most unfairly missing from the HOF player. He's clearly better then a several dozen guys already in.
