    Hall Of Fame Thread

    We should probably have one, the ballots have already been cast, but we know that the Veterans Committee already elected guys.

    They are
    Negro Leagues
    Bud Fowler and Buck O'Neil.
    Veterans Committee
    Gil Hodges, Jim Kaat, Minnie Miñoso, and Tony Oliva.

    Personally I'm really glad Gil Hodges got into the hall of fame.

    I like the list. Dick Allen should have made it too, but I think he gets in next time around.

    Gil Hodges and his 300th ranked war among position players got the judge from his wholly fluky WS win as the Mets Mgr?

    Didn't know much about Dick Allen until the recent snub articles but he ***** all over Hodges' resume

    Minoso, Kaat, certainly well deserved. Allen should be in.

    I wonder why Tommy John wasn't on the Veteran's ballot. He had a similar career as Jim Kaat.

    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 (13) Ryan HGHoward

    Maybe he's on a different era ballot.

    Tommy John and Jim Kaat played in the same era.

    At 81% each, they look like a shoe in.

    they will have 6 going in via the golden age and veterans' committees.
    I'm interested in seeing who, of the first year candidates, makes 5%.

    I forgot about that. Thanks. I think it's only those six.

    I hope Schilling falls short again. I think he should be in, but I didn't like his reaction last year.

    I have no issue with him wanting off the ballot. He's right. There is a lack of understanding by too many voters.
