    2022 Hall of Fame ballot

    Hopefully Ortiz gets in if only to get him off the ballot. We can debate all day whether he deserves to be in, but for me, the line was after testing with penalties, and then especially post-Mitchell Report. Cano, Braun, Manny, Arod…not ever.

    Bummer. Long career, and he was great on Baskets most recently.

    Have definitely fallen back to sleep dozens of times over the years listening to Grobber. He was a unique character and he will be missed. RIP Grobber.

    2022 Hall of Fame ballot

    Jon Morosi and I usually pick HOF very similarly. He has Ortiz, Jones and Sheffield. I have Hudson, Hunter, and Helton. Otherwise, the same. I really haven’t been following the tracking that much this time around. I guess Ortiz making it wouldn’t be awful, but it’s going to be close. I could see him being a second year pick. He’s really the only one with a chance of making it. January 25 will be announcement night.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    They would probably have to make some adjustments so each team has an equal amount of games- home and away. I’m optimistic they’ll get it figured out in February and start on time. Too much to lose if they don’t.
  9. With the addition of Kaat, the 1982 season now has 43 future hall of famers. That’s kind of a lot. Baines, Morris, Trammell, Lee Smith, Ted Simmons got in on committee votes.

    It’s Kaat, not Katt. Jaysus.
  11. When the guy said there were 4 new on the one ballot, I guessed Minoso, Hodges, Kaat, and Allen. Oliva was deserving too. Hopefully Dick Allen will get in too someday. But my lord, enough with putting dead people in. Figure out who belongs per era, put them in while they can enjoy it with their family, and move on.
  12. This is thread for the announcement tonight. They would have done this show to kick off their Winter Meetings coverage. Good luck, Minnie.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    Looks like MLB Network will be moving to alternate programming, and the Field Of Dreams game will be on tomorrow night (abridged version). On when they’ll make an agreement…if I have to guess a 7-day period, I’ll take Feb 15-21. That’ll get them enough time to get players signed, and shorten spring training a little.
  15. Announcement will be Sunday, 5pm, MLB Network Hoping for the best, expecting the worst.
