CTL: BBWAA pitches shutout in 2013 HOF vote
Nobody got into the baseball they Craig Biggio the closest Roger Clemens. Barry Bonds 37%. 32 for months -- Clemens was 37. So also only got twelve and a half percent. And he was cool with it. In a statement Sammy said there's been a moment of great honor for me to have my name on the ballot for the first time a lot. Some of the game's greats even if we -- conduct -- our first time we are still winners there's always a next time god has blessed me with a beautiful family great career. They know you will determine my future in the years to come. Baseball has been very very good to me. Guess that happens. And just so much Flintstones vitamins then exactly. Why you're writer -- writer really definitely what do you guys think about what the writers did yesterday. I've. At some point they're gonna rewrite the rules the business I mean the way it's set up you can not every may go -- I mean it's happened before it in. The -- distant past 96 was the last time we look I think at some point. Do the backlash -- from a lot of other circles about this process and how it happened and how. People are justifying votes against the steroid era players one way -- the other and there's really no consistency I think -- might there might be an effort. To determine a consistent way. To deal with the process overall. To make sure guys just don't hold guys off the ballot for the first time just because. They got to earn it they got -- waited out or whatever sort of esoteric reason they come up for not voting for a guy. And then broke I would seem not to be some hard -- set of rules and how who. Deal with the guys who played in this era because -- It seems like there's too many different reasons. And too many interpretations of what you're supposed to do that maybe if they narrowed down here's a deal with this here's a deal that. That's another Chicago -- for -- always. Oh what I have to enjoy going to that's only not both in the seventies were popping green knees left and right come on and I mean come on please don't compare green -- Two ability to hit a baseball over Bernie brewer's house in Milwaukee. Stop. Greens are there they are they of performance enhancing substance. They may be. -- -- So -- where where do you draw the line you know and I'm I mean just discreet biggest disappointment and say there was the steroid. Chapter in baseball these -- because what about the guy who decided to play the game clean and hit. 47 home runs he was a good player he was a great heading to put the needle in his vein he might hit. Hit 52 home runs and guess what makes double the money and makes it at all. What are your thoughts I -- cap on this one I really do that is through Casey you know you're my guy who usually agree if you -- this when -- I gotta be with pat you don't want. I don't see the big controversy for leaving a lot of golf in these -- clearly violated the rules of the game. So different -- Pete Rose there's a sign in every clubhouse he can't bet on baseball he bet on baseball. He's banned from the hall fame he's banned from baseball is as any man from baseball does banned from the highest honor in baseball so I don't see a problem I really don't see a problem with the writers did I understand the process probably needs to be more streamlined camp all these guys saying they're doing this for certain -- -- -- -- -- but there is a morals clause in the baseball hall went on like the football and that's that's an important point I think -- just. Distinguish the difference between certain -- -- but secondly to I mean. So nobody got an idea look at the list okay the guys were left out were connected to steroids. Craig Biggio is a really good player but to go a long time to get to 3000 hits I'll probably him not getting in on the first try it. I look at Phyllis Reynolds C wow Greg Maddux didn't get left out of the hall of fame Tom Glavine Frank Thomas those are guys -- -- Hole -- right away when I saw him play I don't necessarily think it's easier that way and Barry Bonds what about a hall Famer -- -- -- he chose to violate the rules of the game and a little known fact about the steroid era to every says they were banned until like 2004. Payments and I think it was 1991 came -- and all legal drugs are banned including steroids. The players you never ratified correct I don't care what the play anywhere doesn't lead analyst cut through it out of Paterson is well and I don't care what the players union doesn't ratify and eyes of players union doesn't agree with what the commissioner -- now. They violate the rules so and I don't think this really hurts these people in any way other than a certain honor doesn't prevent them from getting back -- -- -- like that when Mark McGwire he's still hitting coach in Major League best. Also. Barrett come come once thought -- myself on an unprecedented. I I shouldn't you be allowed to vote for every one as oppose limiting it to ten. And I feel like this are. However many guys are worth it you should be able put your ballot. If you make a justifiable argument I mean right there there are some I mean somebody's listening picked apart a lot on my grand when the other day had an article is that the one guy written. My vote for this guy last year but this year wasn't feeling so last year he was a hall of fame cameo player in this series not all of the guys have. Burress accidentally. -- Sealy got one vote whatever idiot. Voted for air it's huge that is -- taking away his -- they're Sealy was not a hall of Famer nice picture that sit with the rotunda -- they were gonna coach for your vote. Those from you can prepare for that -- up up up up. Not a well I'm surprised and -- lol Chad he -- bring up the voting process could there are people railing about how writers should be our burger location baseball fans how could Vince Scully who's got fifty some years covering baseball seen them all. He gets no vote when Teddy Greenstein done and what builder and they don't cover baseball anymore and I'll root for my gut feel I looked over my caddie -- he's got good friends. But why should they get a vote they're not baseball writers anymore. But yet Pat Hughes Vin Scully Marty Brennaman they don't get a vote are you kidding. I think every harbor and every hall of fame deal is -- delivery talk about in the great the past vol fans have no idea how to correct there's a committee for the NFL hall of fame. Includes writers I think it meets our hitters that don't exactly know but it's so come -- all over the place us.
