  • The MLB HOF is Dumb

    This year they got all the inductees right but the exclusion of Bonds because baby boomers are crying about possible steroid use is dumb and bad.

      Another one. Edgar finally getting in is good. Mariano at 100% is whatever. Just shows media loved him everywhere.

        It just shows the arrogance of the voters when this is the first person to ever get 100% of the votes? Hank Aaron nope, Babe Ruth nope, Ken Griffey Jr nope, Sandy Koufax nope, Cal Ripken nope. Truly just an abuse of power.

          It is entirely a popularity contest. Jeter is going to get 105% for some reason. If Ken Griffey Jr didn't get 100, no one should.

            I agree, but "Griffey didn't get 100" is a piss poor reason to not vote for the best who ever played his position.

                  He was a closer for an extremely talented roster his entire career. He was remarkable and I'm glad he got in but him getting 100% while old waspy media dudes grandstand about not voting for Ken because he didn't deserve to be unanimous is completely stupid. 90% of baseball writers should be given weekly swirlies.

                    Should it matter? Guy was an absolute monster and should be in if a guy like Harold Baines is in, even if that was by a committee.

                      Lots of guys were taking, but you still have to be talented enough to make contact.

                        Probably the most underrated baseball player in history

                          The roid users made their deal with the devil. They knew what they were getting into. A lot of hrs would have been warning track outs. A lot of ground ball hits would have been outs. Sucks for them.

                            Well deserved! Putting up those numbers while pitching a good part of his career in a hitter's ball park.

                              Bonds is the only member of the 400 HR/400 SB club and the only member of the 500/500 club. He will get in when the old senile boys club loses their votes so why don't they just get it over with now.

                              Roids or not the guy has a like 30 "how is that possible" stats.
