Calling all jerks and idiots.
Now you may wonder what that is about. (I was going to use another word, but thought better of it; it’s a body part beginning with “a”).
I’m watching the news and seeing Jeter’s hit last night. I’m thinking of him and Rivera.
Two of the classiest, most well-respected players in the sport. Legendary players.
First-class people. First-ballot Hall-of-Famers.
So why procrastinate? When something can be done now, shouldn’t it be done now, and not years from now?
What I’m getting at is this. No one has ever been elected to the HOF unanimously. Not Ruth, Mays, Mantle, Aaron, Seaver, Ripken…guys you think would be no doubters. No one.
So let’s get it over with. All those with HOF ballots and who expect to have those votes and ballots in say eight to twelve years (or the approximate time frame that Jeter and Rivera first become eligible for the Hall) who will not be voting for Jeter or Rivera when they become eligible, please declare yourselves now.
Let’s know who the jerks (idiots, “a”-word) are now.
Alright, we’ll say the a-word.
