Players that took PEDs should be fucking grateful that they are not in jail instead of bitching and lobbying about getting into a goddamn museum.

And the only reason these cheating assholes want to be a part of the museum is because of the same fucking ego that led them to cheat and defile their profession in the first place.

Well that and charge an extra $500 for a goddamn autograph ending with “HOF”.

I make no bones about it.

I HATE THEM.

It will be interesting to see how Jack Morris does in 2013 voting, after finishing behind Barry Larkin last year with 66.7 percent. Everyone will be watching to see what percent of votes Barry “Balco” Bonds receives. Craig Biggio may have trouble garnering votes, even with 3,000 hits because of the influx of first time players on the ballot.

I sign every autograph I can for kids because I remember myself at that age. I think it’s ridiculous that some guys won’t sign for a kid.

Biggio is going to get in for one reason, and one reason only. The universe hates Big Star.

I can’t see many voters voting for Biggio, with so many better known players on the ballot.

Trust me, it may take years, but Biggio will get in just to spite Big Star.

Biggio may even thank Big Star for his part in getting him elected to the HOF. Personally, I think anyone with 3,000 hits deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. Only 20 players have more hits in their career than Biggio and all of them except for Pete Rose and Derek Jeter are in the HOF.

Agreed.

During the induction speech, the plaque will be thrown at his head.

What about Biggio’s, brother Bags, they used to tear the cubs apart.

It was around that time Big Star went insane.

I think Biggio, and only Biggio gets in this year. Morris will inch ever so closer, Piazza will be close but fall short, and Clemens, Bonds, Sosa, etc will all get around 20% of the vote, so this whole drama can continue for another year.

The Wall Street Journal had a very funny, and accurate, take on this mess.

Let them all in. Or keep them all out. Build a special wing. Make them wear embarrassing little letters. How about costumes for the induction ceremony! How about big fluffy costumes, in all kinds of delightful colors?

When does hipster Occupy Cooperstown pitch tents in front of the grand ol’ museum in protest of the steroid freaks not getting inducted?
