Default OT: No One Elected to the Hall?

It seems the voting committee has turned into Washington.

The HOF voting will be announced tomorrow 1/9/2013. That is Keith writing an article tongue in cheek. This year could be the largest inducted in a long time.

"I am not casting stones from inside the glass house. I’m guilty, too. It was the day they gave the 1986 A.L. Rookie of the Year award to Canseco (whose moral standing in this mess has gradually gone from last place to about 4th from the top because he alone was utterly, if mercenarily, honest). One of the runners-up told me off-the-record “you do know that Canseco uses those drugs they give to the East German Women Swimmers, right?”

He didn’t even know they were called steroids.

I did what digging I could, and kept an ear to the ground, but how many sources were enough to tell that story?But in 1988, just after Ben Johnson was thrown out of the Seoul Olympics for a positive steroid test, I got a series of four sources – including some of her opponents – who told me that Florence Griffith-Joyner was just as steeped in scandal as was Johnson. I promptly went out and butchered the story. I was trying to write a revelation that should have sounded like “other Olympic runners say this” and included a recitation of the math that she was now breaking records so profoundly and so quickly that if the pace continued, by the year 2188, a runner would actually finish a race before she started it. Instead, I turned it into something that sounded like “I think she’s on them drug things.” She and her crew threatened suit, I retracted the story, and not long after Thomas Boswell of The Washington Post had the same experience with his “Canseco Cocktail” story. As well-meaning as we each were in trying to expose the putrid mess, we both set back its revelation by some (presumably small) degree. I’m sorry."

Olberman always has great stories to tell you about what he had first-hand knowledge of, after he's been scooped. Way too whiny, and now he tries to throw a legitimate writer under the bus. I think Tom Boswell can speak for himself, and he's probably thinking that right about now.

They're the ones who decided they needed to cheat to compete. Now they are just paying the piper.

I'm considering heading to the HOF this summer to see Deacon White's enshrinement. I think it would be fantastic if no one were elected by the BB Writer's Association of America. It would seem fitting that Deacon joins with Hank O'Day, Jacob Ruppert, and no one else. Sharing the day with Bonds or Clemens, for example, wouldn't set as well with me. A shutout by the BBWAA would serve the steriod era players right (hopefully first of many shutouts). Perhaps the HOF will make a bigger deal over the Veterans Committee vote if that is all they have this year. Lastly, the town may not be as crazy for my visit this July. So here's to hoping for a BBWAA shutout

Don't forget the wild crowds that the Ford C Frink and Spinks award winners bring into town.

Nothing against you Joe because everyone does it, but I'd like to see one person positively identify a clean player during the "steroid era". You can't, I can't and no one here can name one person that was 100% without a doubt clean, so why even bother naming names. As soon as one player from the era was voted in, you opened the door for them all as far as I'm concerned. I don't think I'm going out on a limb by saying there is at least one PED user in the Hall already and I don't even have to venture a guess, it's just very highly likely by now.

I'm going to go on a limb and say, Tim Wakefield.
