Makes sense. When it happened, I thought Boston was nuts to give him that big of a contract.

20/20 hindsight maybe but that was a LOT of money Boston gave him.

I guess he can live on $500k a year.

Here's what I sent to my buddy about last night's HOF winners. A fellow Detroit guy. He liked it:


Yeah, didn't bother me. You're right, Edgar should get in next year. I agree that Omar should get in but I wouldn't hold my breath on him. Compare him to Ozzie Smith and tell me who was better. Ozzie was just more Hollywood IMO.

Can't believe Vladimir can't speak English. I told my wife last night that he is going to have to have a translator at his HOF speech. I found that sad.

Never cared for Chipper but he definitely deserves to be in.

Regarding McGriff, you may recall he tried to hold out to get to 500 HRs, (I think he ended with 493) because that is usually instant entrance.

And while I love the fact that Morris and Tram are getting in, I really wish Whitaker was joining them. He deserves it.

Funny you mention him. Yahoo Sports had an article this morning about that very same thing. It has since been taken down but I'm sure you could find it if you looked. I knew he was an ass but I didn't realize the extent of it. Even after ESPN canned him he was still posting idiotic things on social media. The Yahoo article ran through a timeline of it.

He said something along the lines of he didn't care. He won rings, trophies, etc.

And don't for a second think the bloody sock thing was real. He's an idiot. But still, he put up some good numbers as you say.

Itís about the game. Cobb was an ass. Being an idiot is not illegal

PC has gone too far. The breakout tennis player named tennys has been called out by Serena Williams to recant his right leaning tweets. Heís allowed his viewpoints

And re bloody sick what do you mean? I was at that game btw

Bloody sick? What does that mean? An ill English person?


Totally agree about PC. Funny you mention Cobb. I actually thought of him as I was typing my prior post. Thing is, I believe there is a "character clause" if you will about how a person conducts himself. If Ty Cobb were up for induction today would he be included? Tough to say. I kind of doubt it. There are guys that took a long time to get into the HOF because they were such aholes to sportswriters. Look how long it took Eddie Murray. Would they vote Cobb in today?

It's amazing Ted Williams was ever voted in; and no doubt his "tude" cost him at least two MVP awards.

I'm a big believer that you do the crime, you pay the time. But I don't think it goes towards your profession. You drunk drive you lose your right to drive, you shouldn't get disbarred or striped of your Medical license. What is going on now is insanity

Great point. And God rest his soul, Ted Williams is a great example. You don't have to be a cuddly teddy bear to get in but the process is subjective and if you piss people (the voters) off, well...
