So, no one got into the Hall of Fame. To be honest, I find the whole thing to be rather ridiculous.

Makes quite the statement though...now just need to see if they stick with this statement, or if they falter from it and let some of the steroid abusers in

In other HOF voting news...Kenny Lofton receives less than 5% of the vote..losing eligibility. Not saying he deserves in..but he deserves a lot more than just one year on the ballot

I think that they purposefully denied anyone the call this year to make a point, but I'll bed dollars to donuts that next year they will let one or two of the steroid era players in. There are just too many record holders there to not let them in ever, even if the records are tainted....

Come on man..the name! D=

And we also have Chris Stewart

Not sure..it's either:
-for some odd reason you are going to betray the Yankee cause
-You are goin to get Swisher back
-Or you are going to steal one of their catchers

Leave it to the Yankees (fans) to try to poach players (back). Hey, you guys will get a first round pick from the Indians. How about some more homegrown talent?

...you do relize I was joking, right? Swisher sucked, but he was a very lively player and a fan favorite. He did terrible at the end of the season/playoffs. I think ichiro is a much better choice.
I'm seeing brewers v giants and Indians v Angels. The angels game should be great. Puljous, trout, trumbo and now Hamilton.

How did Swisher net an $11 million/year deal? He's a decent utility outfielder, but he isn't worth that.

I agree the worth might have been a bit of an over-shot..but he is in no way a utility player. With how consistent he has been the past few years he is a great fit for corner outfield spot

Front office needs to stop tradin' 'em away

He did terrible at the end of the season/playoffs

To be fair..nearly the whole team started to do terrible that time

I think ichiro is a much better choice

If he can keep hitting like he was when we got him...then hell yeah.
We are going to have a speedy team XD
