Re: Veterans Commitee HOF Nominees Named
All very good players. Great? I don't think so. I wouldn't vote for any of them. But I do think Santo will make it.
Finley being nominated is crazy. He was not good for that game at all, IMO. He personified the old line ownership of ultimate greed that eventually lead to free agency for the players. Most of his "innovations" were rather stupid too. Green baseballs? Designated runners? He had a jack-ass as a mascot at one time. That was very appropriate for him.
