Not that I get worked up over the HOF, but many living fans have never heard of this years' inductees. Maybe I should know about them, but the truth is I really don't care. Great way for a tourist destination to get business with such a great slate.
Absolutely no reason why Biggio shouldn't get in this year.
In fact, I would propose a compromise to Jaffe's idea.
If no one is selected on the 75% criteria, the leading vote getter should be inducted, provided he recieved 50% of the votes.
I guess it really wouldn't bother me if Morris was in or out. He's borderline, IMO, but there's certainly worse players in. As far as "Fame" goes, he's got that in spades. I would vote him in, despite the stats.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
