    Bobby Cox,Tony La Russa andJoe Torre now Hall of Famers

    Bobby Cox,Tony La Russa and Joe Torre were unanimously elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the 16 members of the Expansion Era Committee. Dave Conception was on the ballot but did not get enough votes. Joe Torre's playing career was considered as part of the totality of his work. He will be going in as a manager however.

    I never realized that managers didn't have to wait the 5 years that players do.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    The Chairwoman of the Hall of Fame said it was a 16 Member Expansion Era Committee. She said obby Cox,Tony La Russa and Joe Torre were voted in Unanimously. She said noone else got more than six votes. That was not the 75 percent needed. Dave Conception and Billy Martin and Marvin Miller and George Steinbrenner were also on the ballot.

    How in the world can Marvin Miller not be in? He changed baseball more than anyone else since Jackie Robinson.

    Cox, La Russa, Torre Elected To Hall Of Fame

    By Steve Adams [December 9 at 10:46am CST]

    The Major League Baseball Hall of Fame's Expansion Era committee announced today that managers Bobby Cox, Tony La Russa and Joe Torre have all been unanimously elected to the Hall of Fame. No players were elected by the 16-man committee, and also noticeably absent is former MLBPA executive director Marvin Miller.

    Cox, 72, finished his managerial career with a record of 2,504-2,001. He managed the Blue Jays for four seasons but is most famous for serving as the Braves' skipper for 25 seasons, during which time he won a World Series title and also captured five National League pennants.

    The 69-year-old La Russa brought home three AL pennants, three NL pennants and is a three-time World Series champion as a manager -- once with the A's and twice with the Cardinals. In 33 seasons as a manager between the White Sox, A's and Cards, La Russa compiled a 2,728-2,365 record.

    Torre, 73, managed at the Major League level for 29 seasons, leading the Mets, Braves, Cardinals, Yankees and Dodgers over the course of his career. Torre captured six American League pennants with the Yankees and led the Bronx Bombers to four World Series victories in a five-year span from 1996-2000. He finished with a career record of 2,236-1,997.

    Remember that this is a separate vote from the annual Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) Hall of Fame vote. The results of that ballot -- which features candidates such as Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Frank Thomas, Jeff Bagwell, Don Mattingly, Fred McGriff and many more -- will be announced next month on Jan. 8.

    Possibly. Or perhaps they are looking at people who had a more direct relationship with the game. Someone who contributed either on the field or in the dugout.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    You mean guys like Morgan Bulkeley, William Harridge or Tom Yawkey?

    If Effa Manley makes it so should Miller
