    Agreed.

    Baseball is weird in that there is a very unique micro culture in each and every clubhouse. This extends beyond the clubhouse into the game itself where many, MANY norms are used while playing the game (think the "Unwritten Rules"). One of the keys is "what happens in the clubhouse stays in the clubhouse".

    Baseball as a whole seems to have a "if you ain't cheating, you ain't trying" mentality because the above mantra is strong. Think about how long steroids were around before concrete evidence came out. Now it seems the front of choice has moved onto technology.

    It's a house of cards. Since everyone is doing it, everyone keeps their mouth shut. Once it's discovered however, some people will jump ship (some to clear a conscious, others for fame/publicity, and some of course for $$$$)

    The city of Los Angeles passed a unanimous resolution urging MLB to take championships away from Boston and Houston and give them to the Dodgers.

    Eager to see the rest of the ballot. Pretty sure Bonds and Clemens aren't any closer.

    **** the guy who kept Jeter from unanimous.
    If Jeter isn't a hall of famer to you...sorry but you shouldn't be a voter.

    **** the guy who didn't give it to Griffey first. If The Kid didn't get it, Mo definitely shouldn't have.

    While i wouldn't leave Jeter off. There are legitimate reasons to not vote for him in a given year.

    If the ballot is full and there are several people either at the end of their eligibility or in danger of falling off due to lack of votes. You can justify not voting for Jeter who a) is in yr 1 and wont fall off, and b) was always going to get elected.

    Schilling got 70%.

    He's the only one who has a realistic chance next year?

    Iím a little surprised Jeter got that high of %. Iím not necessarily big on the stupid games some writers play, Iím just surprised there wasnít the same games played. I get it, heís ďYEA! JEETS!Ē but he was surrounded by an incredible cast throughout his career. Which is fine, a lot of people have been.

    But itís funny that his gray numbers are literally average for a HOFer.
    https://www.baseball-reference.com/p...#all_hof_other

    Second all time offensive WAR, but fourth worst defensive WAR (-8.3) for a SS top JAWS SS. Heh, now Iím digging into it. No one below a +5.5 dWAR has ever been elected as SS. Just to show you how important that position usually is defensively.*. For middle infield, only Biggio (-2.9), and Carew (-1.7) have ever gotten in under 0. Edgar Martinez (-9, 2/3 of his games at DH), Molitor (-6.9, 1/2 at DH) got in. Eight 1B were worse and got in. 7 LF, 2 CF (mantle and Cobb), 11 RF. Zero C ever. 12 IF, 32 OF have ever been elected with sub-zero dWAR.

    That said, he almost certainly belongs given his longevity and overall milestone accumulation. Itís just interesting the dynamics of elections.

    *i still canít believe they didnít move his *** to 3B or some other position where he couldnít do as much damage. Then again, when you surround yourself with juiced up howitzers who canít play defense either...

    Just sayin'.

    And Nolan Ryan got 98+% of the vote for HOF. It's a BS snobbery thing with the HOF.

    The election is between now and then. Perhaps Dump will lose and he'll be killed in The Great Orc Uprising.

    Hes unlikely to get in. Although if just looking at catcher, he probably is worthy.

    Id imagine hes a veterans committee guy down the road, or a last yr eligibility type.
