Re: MLB Offseason 2013-2014

Personally, I don't think criminal matters and sports matters should be conflated. People who commit crimes should be punished by the criminal justice system, but it should have no bearing on whether they should go to the Hall of Fame (Ty Cobb was an asshole, but his personality doesn't change that he's one of the greatest players ever). I personally think Barry Bonds should be in the Hall of Fame (he should be in based on his pre-steroid numbers alone), but whether he cheated in his sport is certainly relevant for deciding whether he should enter his Hall of Fame for his sport.

In other news, Doc Halladay signs a one day contract with the Blue Jays and retires. He had a great career. I think it's a shame he never one a World Series, though, the guy deserved one.

Story from a Phillies perspective.
