    Piazza has almost as many votes for the Mets here, as he does Hall of Fame votes in the other thread

    You also have guys like Gaylord Perry who has admitted to cheating his whole life & is in the Hall of Fame - BTW - He really was not that good anyway!

    Meanwhile - they keep Pete Rose out based on that the gambled on baseball after he retired as an active player - hum?
    Gambling was illegal in baseball at the time Rose was betting on games. It had been illegal for a very long time. Using PEDs was not "illegal" when players like McGwire were using them.

    3941 PA's as a Met vs. 3017 PA's as a Dodger. Yes, he had more PA's as a Met, but the difference isn't as great as many people make it sound here. Despite having played more as a Met, he still has a higher WAR as a Dodger (30.7 as a Dodger vs. 22.8 as a Met). He should go in as a Dodger. He should have arguably won the 1995, 1996, and 1997 NL MVP Awards by a landslide.

    Future Hall of Shamers:
    (1) B.A.L.C.O. Barroids (2) Mark McJuicer (3) Jose Chem-seco (4) Rafael Palmeiroids (5) Ken Chem-initi (6) Jason Gi-andro (7) Ryan Fraud (8) Muscle Melk (9) Woman-Ram (10) Shammy Sosa (11) Roger Clear-mens (12) A-Roid

    Pete rose should be in the hall of fame as a player not as coach im not saying what he did was right but his induction should be based souly on his playing carrer which he me most deffinatly
    deserves

    Rose's achievements are in the record books. His accomplishments will always be recognized, and he -- like Joe Jackson -- will always have noteriety and the public's respect for his skills.

    The rule against gambling was established a long time ago and the penalties were spelled out clearly. Rose gambled with his own legacy, and lost the bet.

    Did the Dodgers fans give Mike Piazza a standing ovation/curtain call after he hit a home run against them the year after he left?

    No? Should be a Met then.

    Without looking at the numbers because I am on my phone and don't have time could this be because he didn't spend his declining years with the Dodgers and he did with the Mets?

    Happy to see you came around...

    That game you went to with him in a Marlins uniform must have really struck a cord
