Hall of Fame Results

Rickey Henderson is a Hall of Famer. As he should be.

Jim Rice is a Hall of Famer. A good ballplayer, not great. He should remember the sports reporters in the NE area with a Christmas card for the rest of his life. If he could get an accurate address list for every Red Sox Nation fanatic, who lit up phone lines whining about Rice not being in the hall, a fruit basket to each of them would be a nice touch, too.

McGwire lost 10 votes from last year, and is stuck at 21%. Which is frustrating, but won't really REALLY piss me off until Sammy Sosa is voted in.

Dawson didn't make it, again. Good. I always thought he was overrated. Rob Neyer wrote an excellent article today torpedoing the Hawk's HOF credentials when compared to Tim Raines. You should read it.
