No one elected to Baseball Hall of Fame; Curt Schilling requests removal from writers' ballot

"Last night's voting curt schilling had the highest vote. Counts seventy one point one percent but that of course is short of the seventy five percent needed to get in After the voting results were announced curt schilling released a facebook. Post that he'd sent to the hall of fame basically asking that he be taken off the ballot next year in his last year eligibility. I'm paraphrasing air. We basically was indicating that he doesn't make the writers he doesn't want to be judged by the writers. He'd rather be judged by veterans committee which is comprised mostly of his peers Barry bonds get sixty one point. Eight percent roger clements sixty one point six percent. They have basically not moved in any of the Any of the voting in recent years voting percentages By the way about schilling's post hall of fame board chairman jane forbes clark said a statement that the board will consider the request at our next meeting

"So just trying to sort this out, Bond says. Crimes against baseball. A Ron does. Pete Rose does like I'm just trying to sort this out in wonder what goes into the process here, Bob because I may not like what Kurt Tweets, but I could look at him as a baseball Hall of Famer. I didn't question his character, charitable contributions when he played when he played, and I don't know if it's just I shouldn't Can I separate and not just look at that? Is that or am I being totally naive here? No, I don't think you're being naive. I said this for years Now. He kind of stepped up some of his tweets in the past year to his detriment when it comes to the Hall of Fame, But he was out there for the last few years, and I always said that if I was a voter, and as you know, it's only baseball writers who have a vote. I always would have voted for Curt Schilling. I would have voted for him on the first ballot, the best strikeout to walk ratio of any pitcher since 1900 remarkable postseason record. In addition to 11 and two he pitched in five elimination games in October. His record was for Noah and the other one in which he had a no decision. His team also won the game and is he already in those five games was 1.37. Plus, it's a Hall of fame. It's not just statistics. He's part of baseball lore. The bloody sock game. The Red Sox Yankee rivalry. All that stuff. S O. I think he's a Hall of Famer and I I would like to see him elected, but somebody's gonna have to put an arm around his shoulder if he is elected and say, Look, Kurt. This acceptance speech has to be 100% about the baseball and baseball only way. Don't care if you talk about the bloody sock for 15 minutes, but we don't want you talking about Donald Trump for 15 seconds. The bonds and Clemens dilemma that comes up every year. Here, Um Do you think that their fate will be better resting in the hands of the Veterans Committee? Not necessarily, you know, depends on the composition off the particular committee. It's not all the same. They break it up into heroes on depending upon the composition of 16 person panel. Some of those people may feel particularly negatively toward it. You know Joe Morgan, for example, the late great Joe Morgan, who was on the boards. Directors of the Hall of Fame or two directors. Hey, was always adamant about no steroid guys in the Hall of Fame. I don't know that that's universal, but there's certainly a strain of thinking in that way, so I don't think the Veterans Committee necessarily Gives Bonds and Clemens Ah, better shot at it. I'm just trying to. And I don't know if Schilling will be better suited for the Veterans Committee like I think he thinks so. Um, would you say Schilling has a better chance with the Veterans Committee than Bonds and Clemens too? I think so, Um, it's shillings, feeling that he was respected by those he played with and against, Um and that's certainly true with very, very few. Exceptions, you know, he specifically specifically took out after writers. I may not have the exact phrasing correct, but there was a cartoon that he put out on Facebook a couple years ago. Whatever it was, and it was Journalist rope tree, some assembly required. Yeah, even if he says that was tongue in cheek. Come on s O. I think some people have taken that personally, which would be understandable. A rod testing positive twice. So there's no rumor innuendo here like he's had a great five years since he retired by the way like it's It's like a body switch with him and jeeter that All of a sudden, a Rod's doing shark tank and Sunday night baseball. He's at the inauguration. Does any of this matter when it comes to voting next year or these writers going to go? Yeah, it's nice, but, you know, let's go back and look at all the things that he did and how he harmed to baseball. Well, a couple of things they're down. There are some writers who make a distinction, and it's a valid one between players who may have used before baseball codified testing and specific penalties. And those who went ahead and did it. Even after that, all had been codified and a rod is certainly in that category. Then on top of that, he sued baseball and he had to sit out. Ah, year, so he's got all those The merits, but at the same time Look what's happened? Ah, few years ago at the World Series. I was in the production trailer with a bunch of knowledgeable baseball guys, and I just happen to say, you know, a few years from now. A Rod's curating is going to be higher than Derek Jeter's, and they looked at me as if I had three heads. But it turns out now to be correct, not because Jeter's is negative, necessarily, where has any more negatives next to it, But because a Rod and public perception you know being about to marry J. Lo, I don't know They got married or not yet, but they're engaged. Whatever being with J. Lo and being on TV, and he's a handsome guy when he walks out on Jimmy Fallon or whatever the place goes nuts, so in terms of public Perception he's been largely rehabilitated. The writers are a little bit more aware than that, but many of them may say to themselves. Wait a second. Where are the guidelines here? Can Rosenthal, very respected writer for the athletic has been saying that recently? I don't know how to parse all these things. Pete Rose on the outside, looking in a rod, not only the celebrity, but he's a baseball figure. He's on ESPN. You know where? What's What's the What's the objective standard here? What's the consistent standard here? And what of the voters supposed to make of it? Maybe maybe the fact that a Rod has been brought back into baseball, not just that his public Persona is better than it once was, but that he's part of baseball maybe doesn't work for the commissioner's office. But baseball accepts him as as a fixture on Sunday night baseball and and another baseball events. Maybe. Maybe that makes it easier for some people to say. Look, I give up. I'm just doing it on. What the numbers. Tell me. You also have this argument, which I don't buy into, but you'll hear. Hey, this guy was a Hall of Famer before he started using. It doesn't work that way. Your career is your career. If you use then you're not a Hall of Famer. In my opinion, it's not like man. That guy was father of the year. Well, until he had his mistress, But he was father of the year for like it doesn't work that way. What, But for a lot of people it does. It's obvious that a lot of the voters make a distinction between let's say bonds and Clemens, who clearly would have been first ballot Hall of Famers Inner Circle Hall of Famers if they had retired. In the late 19 nineties, which is generally one we think especially of bonds is pretty good evidence that that's where it began. Otherwise, Sammy Sosa would be up around 60% instead of its 17%. He hit over 600 homers. He it's better than 60 homers. Three times, and he's part of baseball history. And in the late nineties and early two thousands, so ah, huge percentage. The electorate does make the very distinction that you're saying doesn't matter. You know, I know I'm in the minority here, but You know, it just comes down to. It's a museum. It's for the fans. And you know if the fans want people and they want to see it in their museum than great, I like I got to the point where I don't enjoy baseball because it feels like there's There's always things on the periphery and never the game..

"For the Radio Hall of Fame, and I don't get in. Should I be blaming them or myself? Hey, just look at my radio career here, guys. I just want you to remember how funny trash Tuesday was okay. A lot of years elapsed. Remember the 12 days of Christmas Like, Yeah, they would take that personally. Let's just say you work in insurance. Okay? And at the end of the year you have some big banquet. And you voted the best insurance salesman all year. And at that party, that insurance salesman just keeps telling everybody how much he hates all of you. It is a wanted go away to the hall of Fame or get that award any threatens violence against you. You're like, Let's not give Tom the award, okay? What do you think's gonna happen? So when shillings like I don't want to be considered next year. I mean, come on. You only are saying this because you haven't gotten in yet and ultimately. Maybe this doesn't fall on the writers and it has to fall on the players. The Veterans Committee people that actually played and that's OK as well. This is why this is very messy. Also. If ultimately Curt Schilling. Is accepted by his peers. The players who he didn't threaten violence against or joke about violence against four They just say you know what? We're gonna take the off the field commentary out of this. That's fine. Have no problem with him going in the Hall of Fame based on a vote of his contemporaries. And the same thing for Bonds and Clemens. Maybe that's the way that this ought to be. The Veterans Committee are the ones to put Their thoughts in the context of history here. And if the Veterans Committee looks at Bonds and Clemens And is Eased up enough on steroids to believe they belong in. Maybe it tells us more about how many people that steroids or most importantly, and here's my final point. The guy that did steroids that are already in the Hall of Fame. Look, Barry Bonds was a grade a jerk. Okay. So was Roger Clemens for those guys were great baseball players. So I feel really bad for them. No, I don't because they cheated and they were jerks about it. But you know what their guys that cheated and worry jerks and are in the Hall of Fame. I think we could all Assume that pretty solidly here. There's always been whispers about Jeff Bagwell and Pudge Rodriguez and Mike Piazza. Any of other guys in there is well that defy logic with longevity of their careers and how great they were for as long as they were. And the fact is somebody did steroids that's in the Hall of Fame right now. So what you can't do in my estimation is keep out the guys that you think you believe absolutely did them But put in the guys that well, we don't really know if they did that. I think that that's trying to play God and I don't I don't agree with that. Oh, I like the idea of bonds and Clemens being honored with the greatest honor in the history of the game. Not really, because they were scum, and they were cheaters. I don't love that idea, but I've got to be fair about it. And to me, the fairness doctrine is If you're keeping them out because of steroids, then you can't have anybody in there that did steroids.

"Because clearly should. I made the point that you know the the racetrack and so many Horse players and fans and and people around the game. I saw just in the last twenty four hours. It's not even twenty four hours yet. About how many people. Who said i used to see him at delaware park. I saw us to see him at laurel. I'd see at Philly and you know the the racetrack Seemingly a much more comfortable setting you know for him The legacy and there's so much that's being written and i i know there's going to be more dick. The the problem we have is that i don't sense that there's a sports writers around that can kind of revisit. What might have been their own misreading and misunderstanding of him. If you go back to the sixties and you know his resentment of being called you know quite frankly. A boy's name. And and i i basically invoked the word you know from that era where people viewed him as uppity which is about as as disgusting and condescending and i think that that that contributed mightily to the fact that that he was excluded from one vote after another the baseball writers. And i think you're right Look obviously i wasn't around. I didn't get to see him play But i think that's exactly right The terms to use work discussing in every way. I think it was a victim of the times He was a shy guy but anybody actually took the time to get to know him and again. I didn't but i know people that did they love. I mean he was just a wonderful. I listen to some of the teammates played with them. Mike schmidt said he's like his favorite team ever. Allan came like wait in his career. Early in my career steve stone. I saw was on twitter yesterday. That the great pitchers that longtime broadcaster in chicago talk about what a great teammate. he was. Who's gossip said. He's the best player ever played with and think about who. Who's got with great yankee teams. So yeah it's really unfortunate. he was just. It was just the times it was the mid sixties and the world was changing The civil rights act came about and people just and it's really sad in a way because there's so many people that didn't understand the good news. Is this story has gotten out over time But hopefully what will happen. He's now in the veterans committee. Obviously at the hall of fame. And hopefully someday i won't be sports thing because it'll be a group of people all ballplayers and i'm not sure who's on that committee but certainly for his family and the people certainly philadelphia chicago watch. The play would love to say a man and and for a guy. And you're right. I like to. I can't count how many times i saw various race tracks through the years. I think i probably went up and talked to him but it's not a i don't have a great memory but my all mcafee was incredibly approachable and loved the track and who among us to the racetrack can't be a.

"Not just a good player because he had time for them, and he took any and is he shared his experience of the big leagues with them, And in doing so he shared it with all the people and feeling that they booed him. They booed him, but they loved him. Tough 10. He was just one of those legendary guys and he's the whole Famer. I mean, he he had almost 300 year over 300 home runs. He was just a great hitter. And, uh And I think he fell short this year from the Veterans Committee by a vote. Did you know anything about me off? Did you know anything about him to you? Or maybe a teenager when he was in the news? Did you know about him as a guy who was outspoken against racism, and he was viewed back then. So the white media it said, painted him as a bad teammate or a troublemaker because he didn't take any stick, right. Is that how it was kind of how it went down? I don't know, But I do know, um That every guy that played with him every guy that knew of them. They loved him. And that was simply not the case from players in regards to him. He's a great teammate. I mean, in his own way of doing things. I mean, you get to a ballpark. It's seven o'clock game. You get there. It's 6 30. And you know he wouldn't even know who he was playing didn't care. But because he was so good. I mean, managers would cut him a break in that regard, But when you have players like that you don't have any. You don't have any anger towards him when he shows up plays every day. And it's liable to you know when your ball game with one swing of the bat. You know, there are guys that you know that just have different rules. And I mean, that was the case with Kevin Mitchell is the case of with Barry Bonds and not nobody Okay, six years. They don't have a problem with that. The gala was a good guy and and for writers, maybe he didn't have time. Maybe he maybe Dick out and bury Boss had a lot in common. They didn't spend time with the writer Steve Carlton did never talk to him. Never talk to the writers. And, uh, I think it's unfortunate that The writers who vote may have held a grudge may have may have purposely not voted for him because of the way that he treated the writers. But the guys in the game who played they loved him. Well, you know, it's it's thing is how history plays a role because the Phillies this past summer during the pandemic, retired his number number 15, and they've never done it for a non hall of Famer, but they did it for him because they just felt you know, they look back on him and They said was emotional ceremony, he says. I thank the city of Philadelphia, even though it was rough..

"One thousand nine hundred seventy, eight, nine, hundred, ninety, four veterans. Seventies largely was sort of this. Arguably now beginning face but but you're. Now shifting into another gear here in the late Seventies. Right and so you can imagine there eighteen. Former players on the veterans. Committee. Put to Negro Leaguers on their among the eighteen. You know what incentive to these guys who didn't know about the Negro Leagues have to elect you know spend seventy five percent of their votes. Negro Leaguers they elected to people over sixteen years. Wonderful was room foster who is probably one of the most important figures in eagerly history. So, then The hall of fame realized this is not working. So they basically gave the Veterans Committee and eight-man. And said You you're allowed you have to put in one person a year for the next seven years. and. So they elected one person a year they book Neil on the committee and he would tell the other veterans who should be elected. And then about two thousand and one, they said, okay. Our ballots almost out. That's the end of it. But you just described that in yeah I'm sorry you describe your book almost as essentially like Oh as a quota type system. Yeah. Quarter you know they were told one person you put in no more no less just you know get this anywhere basically told to vote for because they were given a very short ballot. And the you know the way I look at it is the hallways was dragged. Kicking and screaming into admitting Negro League members was never this type of open voting which was allowed for you know the white. Major Leaguers. So finally in two, thousand, five, the hall of fame and Major League Baseball, authorize this study which I, which I mentioned before where they been two hundred and fifty thousand dollars putting official statistics together for the nineteen twenty to nineteen, forty eight, they brought a historians committee together twelve people they said seventy five percent vote you get in, they gave him thirty five name ballot which had been pre cleared by the hall of fame and they said you can put in as many as you want from the thirty five. But. Again, you know I interviewed committee members and they felt there was an implied. Obligation. Not. To go too crazy. In Effect I. Think it's very impressive that they elected seventeen people out of the thirty five. But you know as I say in my book, I. Think you know there was a good case for almost all thirty five to be in. There were very, very strong players. There's never been a situation where there was an open and fair ballot over a period of time where people could build a consensus..

"This hour on the expressway, but getting busier. Good to have you with us this morning On Wednesday, the 14th Day of October. I'm just now coming to Because I spent an hour and a half on the phone yesterday. With someone who is talking about health insurance, and I was comparing health insurance policies and going through explanations of various benefits and costs. Do you ever do that? My advice. Find somebody who's an expert and let them do it because it's ah, it's designed to be so complicated. You can't comprehend anything. Police. I could So I don't know what I signed up for. I'm not quite sure but Ah, I'm talking to these people for literally an hour and a half yesterday going through all this trying to make decisions for the family. And the whole time I was on the phone. I'm thinking I'm not qualified to do this. And and I was thinking how don't like older people handle this. What do they do? I mean, really? Can't they make this simpler for us? Can't be like on one piece of paper like, you know, just a couple of paragraphs. Okay, if you get if you do this, it will cost you this. Here's your choice here, you know, Check one. And there you go. I mean, it's ridiculous. And have you ever have you ever understood an exploration of benefits that you get? Is it possible? It's gotta be on purpose that they do that. Do they even does anybody ever read those anyway? Until something happens? Well, you know, I tell myself I should be reading this asleep. They should try. But I've asked some people like that the doctor's office or at the dentist's office. I've said, is it just me or can nobody understand this stuff and people work in the offices? They all say the same thing that nobody could understand it. And there's usually one person in the office whose job it is to Go through that and deal with you on that. But Hopefully, you know a person like that and you'll give them the job. So Anyway, I'm I'm just recovering from that yesterday. And speaking of yesterday. I know I said some nice things about Joe Morgan, who passed away at the age of 77. Great Cincinnati Red Big Red Machine and then Ah, great broadcaster. I thought But then I was reminded yesterday that he stood in the way of Ron Santo getting into the hall of Fame. Yeah, for a long time while Ron was still with us. So I'm taking back a lot of the nice things I said about Joe, I I didn't think it was appropriate to bring that up. When you were discussing the I think he should have Davey. I was not. May I bit my tongue. I was going on about how I liked it. I liked it when John Miller and Joe Morgan teamed up on they were good on the ESPN something basically. Yeah. Yeah, we're good. But why did why did Morgan and stand in the way of of sandal going into the hall? You know what It was at a time where it was the guys. The Veterans Committee was made up of the guys who were in the hall. Onda was like they Didn't wanna let mohr more guys in. I mean it it it just seemed that way and Yeah, I don't know was somewhat baffling, but yeah, that was a real thing. What can I say? I'm sorry. I feel bad that Joe passed away and he was a great ball player and just let it go. Okay? You're right. Thank you. I'm sorry. I'm still reeling from the health insurance.

Joe Horrigan leaves Pro Football Hall of Fame after 42 years

"Joe Horrigan. Yes. Forty two years, the keeper of the flame at the pro football fame his last day on the job as yesterday. Mean so would you see the buildings still standing? I don't know. Personally held it up in confirmed. But one of the nicest sweetest guys. ESPN did a story about have over the weekend. I mean he has been doing everything for the hall of fame. And in terms of a great story when we first. When we. Like the sweetest man he would be the ones calling the hall of famers on the phone to let them know. A couple times doing pretty cool, rich because. Yeah, because we all right? So I'll tell story here. So we're on the air in, in Houston, Texas, at the Super Bowl for Super Bowl thirty eight our first one we ever did. Okay. Or the calendar year two thousand four NFL season two thousand three year that the patriots. The panthers. And then we watched them beat the eagles the next year Jacksonville. So reason why I'm bringing this up is our set was right near in the convention center, I ever NFL total axis set right near the main convention center dra- hall like the largest room in the convention center where they held all the press conferences, including for the pro football hall of fame. Now all you folks out there. No, the pro football hall of fame class is announced now at the NFL honors they try to keep it quiet. David Baker, the president of the pro football hall of fame walks around and knocks on doors of hotel rooms were all the eligible finalists are holed up with their families hoping to hear that knock on the door, and it's created some really amazing video moments where David Baker lets the players know that. They're now fully enshrined. They're immortal. It's like a very nice. It's, it's like a publisher's clearinghouse moment without the check. Right. So that's the way it's done now. And they try and keep that quiet until it's announced that the NFL honors a used to be they just announced in the press conference. That's it. And the players who were finalists were invited to the Super Bowl city and those that thought they were gonna make it showed up. Others were working on TV in many other parts of their their lives. There were working professionally at the Super Bowl and for just happened to be there, and some just wouldn't show because they didn't wanna show up to the host city and then find out they didn't make it. It's expensive. You know, and it stinks. I remember one year Warren Moon. Told me the year he got in Warren Moon. Was in town, and he was driving in a car. Somewhere around the city. I forget, what city was announced he was ending his driving in a car, and he was either going to get the phone call from the hall to say that he was in and he'd show up at the convention center drive convention center, or you didn't get the call, Dr the airport. Town. So that's the way it used to be. We're sitting there. And our green room was right next to our NFL, total access at, and John Elway and Barry Sanders, went in that year together. Jill. Look that up for me, make sure that this might not a pulling this story here. Was it? John Elway in Barry Sanders. Think went into the same pro football hall of fame class in the summer of two thousand four. And they were announced N Houston together, and they were. Correct. And they were in our green room. They were in our green room, just chilling out before they were being brought into the draft hall into the into the convention center, press conference hall room. And being announced. And we got an idea at the NFL network. You know what? Let's make this a thing. Like we had video of them waiting, and just we could have interviewed them and like, okay so players are here. And the press conference is going there. Let's televise the press conference. So the next year, I was the host of the press conference, and it was. Difficult. Tap dancing for me when I'm up there and hard-bitten media of the NFL world was used to just having the announcement happen. Right. And those who were there showing up and they'd be there, and they'd find out the rest of them. Instead, we just drew. We I think I kinda Jim great it like we try to draw out and the people in the room. The media members room really getting pissed off. So next year, it was just like we're gonna nounce them and wait for the people to come and show up, and then I would interview them, but sometimes it would take them five ten minutes to get to the convention center. And then the meantime, we would Joe would get the guys who was not who are not there on the phone for me to interview live. I remember those. Joe a couple of times me on live NFL network television. Just trying to tap. That's I forget the name of the guy, you don't have to look it up either. He was a veterans committee. And shrining who had been out of public life for very long time. And I'll be honest with you, who I never heard of I had no idea, he played like it was really from a long time ago. But we were so desperate to fill time. Joe got him on the phone. I don't wanna say. Joe got the guy on the phone, and as we're coming back from commercial break, he tells me, so and so's on the phone, but he probably can only answer questions because he has dimension. Mike ally. Gosh and Joe then ran away. Because he had another phone call to make. Sweetheart. I mean this guy is just so and I just was okay. You know, this is a great moment for this man, I asked him a couple of questions. He was able to actually answer them. But Joe gave me that nice little heads up. You know, hey, just right heads up for you. I may not be able to answer a single question. Guy. He just a sweetheart of a guy and I just wanted to say, thank you, Joe, he's out there, driving around, or he's on the driving range, or wherever somebody just let them know gave a

"But fortunately, the veterans committee. She that's worthy veterans committee came in and rectified. You know? So to speak. I don't think there was any injustice in these quote modern day players that were on the ballot. You know for the committee this year who to to look at at this early stage after they are sell off the baseball writers' ballots. Yeah. I got I got about a minute. And I know we've been talking about the hall of fame, but baseball digest is much more than that. And it certainly contemporary to be sure what do you think the reds have done in this off season other than accumulate a lot of players on one year contracts. What do you think they've done to make them more competitive this year, if anything I'll tell you what I think they've done can I think they've done more than any of the teams in front of them have done. So I mean, if you look at the teams in front of, you know, the cardinals they got Goldschmidt. But the cubs brewers. I think the pirates I think they've done a lot. Now, they've got good player. They added more good players. So I think they're going in the right direction. I don't know where that's going to put them in the standings and twenty nineteen. But if I was a rich fan, I'd be pretty excited about seeing some of these guys they are they're very excited out here. And if you look at the division, this could be the most brutal division in all of baseball. You very well. Could you might win that division with eighty seven eighty eight wins? So if the reds can move that bar close to eighty wins. This your eighty wins by Eighty-one track by the the end of June early July. They might be in a position to do something. And I think you've hit it right on the head. Yeah. Well, that's what we hope for out here. Hey, rick. This was great editor in chief. Baseball digest, like, I said, if you know baseball, you know, the publication if you don't be more intimate with it because it's just just terrific. Rick. Thanks, remember, it's now a full size full colour magazine. Right. Wasn't like that. When I was a kid know what it was easy to kind of put in your pocket. You know, you could hide it when the teacher came down the aisle with. Well, we had pockets in those right and dumber teachers. But anyway, Rick thank you so much for your time. We appreciate it anytime can okay. Baseball digest is a terrific publication. I don't think rose would have been unanimous just because of what he said, you know, you've got writers that for some reason want to use their ballot as a weapon if I were in the Baseball Writers Association of America, which I'm not and somebody used a ballot as a weapon for any reason. I would suspend his ability to vote for at least five years, it's a privilege and a privilege should never be used as a weapon in anything. But certainly when you're talking about an honor the such as going into the baseball hall of fame..

"That yeah, that's the thing is like, maybe maybe it's because like Barry didn't have the greatest relationship with the media. But Roger throughs wife onto the bus next question. Yeah. Yes. So there's really no excuse to why they're not dead even voting percentage. Is there a package deal? They are for sure a package deal. Do you think? Do you think that the voters are going to make them sweat it out until you're ten right now that was their seventh year on the ballot. They've got three more cracks at this thing. Do you think that the voters are going to be like, you know, what like you guys are hall famous, but you don't deserve to get into till you absolutely have to get in. Or do you think that there's a chance that they're just not gonna put it either his chance that they don't put him in? And that the writers say, you know, what if you think and this is a back to Jay Hayes point, they're going to say. If you players think you've got it. Right. And if you players think you're going to do a much better job than us at this thing will then why don't we just leave it up to you players? And we'll let your veterans committee decide the fate of your superstars and then the game will have been held responsible for dictating the future and the potential immortality of these individuals. So if I was part of the BWIA, Maya whole position would be okay. Here you go veterans committee make your bed and laying it because my opinion doesn't matter at this point if I voted in or if I don't I'm still the asshole. So let's let the veterans committee be the naysayers or let's let them be the gatekeepers and be the ones who opened up for. But at the end of it, it's going to be baseball. And the baseball veterans committee in the baseball players, in my opinion that have a say in whether or not these two men become immortalized. Yeah. I was actually surprised at how far they fell because. Well. Well, they each of them gained roughly two to three percent from last year, which is not a big jump whatsoever. But when they settled around like fifty nine percent, those first fifty six ballots that were public or whatever from not Bisser Tibbs. They were around seventy five percent. So it's like that second half was just like note, not doing it. Because I thought I thought for sure that they weren't getting in with this class. But I thought that they would have cracked sixty five percent at least, right? So 'cause now I was like, oh if they don't get in this year. They'll definitely get it next year. Now, I'm not so sure they're getting next year. But they are right around. Curt Schilling is and I can't see the baseball writers just having a hall of fame class of just Archie. No that's going to be I disagree..

"Love it. Misremembered? You know, like lying by omission is what my dad would say don't say anything and Clemens. They are likely not to get in. They missed it. Get more votes. They may not get in north through the normal electoral process. Okay. They may have to get in by the veterans committee and right now most of that veterans committee is very much against them. Because of what they did to the game. So they may end up going in. If they do go in posthumously when the players who played against bonds and Clemens are in their sixties and seventies and themselves are on the veterans committee. You got that? If he didn't do it. Oh, he should have gotten just based on what he didn't. Pittsburgh. I think the same thing with Clemens in Boston. Yeah. I mean their numbers were were that good. They were that dominant. You know, before they ever touched the stuff, and I we don't know everything's allegedly. And nothing's prove whatever the Mitchell report who knows but ended the day is probably guys that are in the hall of fame that may have tampered with some of the stuff, according to some of the experts, but Mike you seen got in. Did that surprise you? Brian. A pretty solid. I thought he was pretty consistent. Although Stanford guy. Good citizen, right? No, that's that's often the debate these days with the hall of fame. Do you get in because you've will they call him accumulators a guy like Mike we've seen a guy like hanalani. I'm trying to think of someone else. Puts up numbers because of longevity or a guy, for example, like a sandy Colfax who didn't have a long career, but for that four or five year stretch in the early to mid sixties was as dominant as ever as any pitcher has ever been over a similar span. It's always been a situation of if it's a hall of Famer if you have to think about it, maybe he's not a hall of Famer, why don't you think of a guy like Willie Mays, Hank? Aaron there's no question. Yeah. It's kind of like Justice Brennan said about pornography. Yes. Exactly. You can't describe what you know when you see. I do I like that. That's good stuff. BP? No, I made my own lines for Saturday. So they'll be off a little bit. But there's just a couple games that I'm going to throw your way see because we have the SEC big twelve challenge.

So I'll take you on that as well. Let's see how about. Let me see what do we got here about Florida at TCU, and I may TCU a three and a half point home favourite. Florida's playing. Florida in that game. Alabama's at Baylor. I had Bama. The other night took care of business easily there in Waco. Bela. Yeah, I may Baylor a two and a half point home favourite how about Virginia ACC game. But Virginia at Notre Dame Virginia. I liked this Virginia team to win. It all Brian.

I mean, we could have an argument about how old Baynes worthiness compared to probably about a hundred other players to be very honest with you Jason. So I'm wondering what that's all about true that what herald bands was voted in by one of the veterans committee. The today's game Eric committee last month. And I, you know, I don't know how much of an effect he had on our election. But he clearly is going to have an effect on all future veterans committee elections because there's so many places you just said who are above the Harold Baines line just undeniable, and I don't mean that with any disrespect how Baynes who had great career. But I I've always thought it's not an insult to say that somebody was not quite a hall of Famer. I mean, barely one little more than one percent of all players ever played make it to the hall of fame. And so if you're among the best two percent, you're still great. You just might not be that great. And this is gonna cause a reexamination of all kinds of players because of that. But you know, I think people have also made the same point regarding your Martinez right who gets in on the tenth year. And I think two things are going on there. One is the rule of ten was a big factor in his lower vote. Total people weren't voting against him. Just about was so clogged. He didn't make a lot of voters top ten. So that that's been a big part of this. And then the other part is we we've just got so much information. Now, that's so more incisive than what we were using when he first came on the ballot. All we did then with count the guy have three thousand five hundred homers, boom, he's all Famer if he doesn't he's not now we can see past that.
