    Not sure about when the veteran's committee, or whatever it is now called, make their selections.

    Not really shocked by only those two being voted in.

    Vets vote comes out late Feb or March.

    Feel bad for Goose, who deserves to be in.

    JDV will be devestated by this. I hope a Raiderette is preparing him a soothing epsom salt bath, whatever.

    Once again, there's a dipshit who casts a vote for a Jay Buhner.

    Just make it a museum.

    Jesus. Blyleven actually lost votes.

    People are truly morons.

    Whomever voted for Dante Bichette, Bobby Bonilla, Tony Fernandez and/or Jay Buhner should have their voting privileges taken away.

    Holy crap, Paul O'Neill received 12 votes! I guess playing in NY does make a difference ...

    But Scott Brosius got nothing. Not that big a difference.

    Funny thing is, if Harold Baines had only 134 more hits, he'd be in the Hall. As it is, he got less votes than overrated Don Mattingly (thank you NY!).

    Dante Bichette got three votes? Insane.

    And to think I complained about Peyton Manning's two MVP votes.

    The entire thing is a joke.

    See, that's the thing.

    The entire thing isn't a joke. Almost all of the people in there have a pretty solid case. That's what makes the mistakes/omissions/etc. that much more frustrating.

    The other halls of fame are largely jokes. Baseball isn't. But it is in danger of becoming one, IMHO.
