Re: MLB Offseason 2013-2014
I don't get the '1st ballot' portion of the argument. They either ARE or AREN'T HoF players. If they get in on the 15th ballot, to what extent do they really belong at all? Are there rankings in the Hall for 1st ballot guys vs 7th ballot guys? Of course not. It's BBWAA nonsense and politics.
If he belongs in, vote for him. If not, don't. Don't decide to vote for him, but not on the first ballot. Or cave to inertia and vote in guys that don't belong on their 12th try...
Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by man. ~Jack Handey
