Re: John Fay Abstains from HOF Voting to Avoid Casting Votes for Bonds and Clemens
By not voting at all, Fay is not only avoiding a controversial decision to exclude the two players who were clearly the best of their generation, he is also implying that no other players on the ballot warranted a vote.
Neither implication is particularly symbolic of a backbone or overriding conviction.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
