    Concepcion really deserves to be in the Hall. If I had a vote it would be:
    1.) Dave Concepcion
    2.) Andre Dawson
    3.) Jim Rice

    Later years I consider Dave Parker, Bert Blyleven and Harold Baines.

    Sorry, but it's not going to happen unless it's on the veteran, or whatever they call the other ballot. The writers will never get this one right.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    I wouldn't put any of the nominees into the HOF; unless Tommy John can be put into the surgical wing for changing the careers of so many players.
