My concern with this premise is where to draw the line--how do we decide about the guys closer to the fringe below Bonds and Clemens?
I just think, that like everything in life, the voters should weigh what they know and believe and decide. Very little in life in clear cut and totally objective.
Seriously, we judge things like "beauty" and "art" and we even put numbers on those.
Information vs. Set of Beliefs/Preferences = decision.
There's a spanish saying that "every head is world". You can't expect everyone to think like you do. So don't.
Here on the board, for example, jojo expresses a view on the HOF issue that is totally opposite from mine. But he explains it well and consistently. So you have to respect that. No problem, we agree on other stuff.
And back to Fay, I think he should have at least been able to make a decision he could defend to himself.
But then again "cada cabeza es un mundo".
