HOF vote

Who the heck didn't vote for Jeter?? 396 out of 397 votes. Had to be a Boston writer! Or a Mets fan.

Thank God I'm an American, and not a democrat!

Cooperstown has been a joke for decades now. Say what you will of the 90's steroid era, but there are quite a few all time greats missing.

Rose. Why the hall not? If he played in NY or LA he would be in. If he is not allowed make him the standard. Don't measure up, buy a ticket like me. Waugh!

Some of the best baseball players to ever put on a uniform will not get in due to the people who are doing the voting!! Barry Bonds should be in the HOF,he left my team to go to the Giants but as a fan im just looking at it as what his# where and if he was doing steriods why did nt the league suspend him or throw him out? Cause people came to see him hit and the league took the profits off it,same with A-ROD,Mcquier, and then the commisioner of that era gets in,go figure.

Of all the great players in the HOF it's amazing Rivera was the first unanimous selection. Think about it, Aaron, Greg Maddux, Carlton, Seaver. There are many more that make you scratch your head. How could anyone not vote for Aaron? His numbers when he became eligible were in the stratosphere. Nine voters thought Henry Aaron wasn't worthy!

Larry Walker? That one threw me a curve...........

Yeah....don't care what Barry was taking there was about a six year period in his career where you could rarely sneak a fastball by him on the inside half. Lot of fun to see him turn on a pitch. He was as good a hitter as anyone I have seen in my life.

Mlb and everyone around the game knew what was going on despite what you hear. And it did not begin in the nineties......more like the late seventy's and early eighties. The results caused more and more to use and by the nineties Ped's were common as amphetamines in baseball. Canseco was telling the truth. (Even if he is a jerk) They needed the fans back after the strike and Ped's fueled the resurgence. I guess enshrinement means something to the players and their families, don't matter much to me. I love the game and will always remember a great player.

I agree. If MLB is considering Bonds, Clemens, etc. they should consider re-instating Rose. It will be interesting to see if MLB considers Beltran, and any other of the Astros when their time comes.

Well I guess if Babe Ruth is is in than the steroid guys should be considered. Ruth used beer and I know that beer enhances my ability to dance. Waugh!

Actually did start in the 70s and 80s....1870s and 80's! Pud Galvin was using monkey testosterone and was in MLB from 1875-92.

He is noted as the first player to use PEDs.

He was inducted into the HOF in 1965.
