Thoughts On Hall of Fame

Hall of Fame

Three new Hall of Famers – Glavine and Maddox, perhaps two of the best pitchers of all time.  And then Thomas.  Meh – I have no argument.

However, I couldn’t help but notice that McGuire and Clemens each failed to make it and, to make it worse, received fewer votes this year than last.  Which got me to thinking.

What’s the difference – as far as the integrity of the game is concerned – between some medicines that help the body train and technology that allows doctors to replace entire ligaments?

Is it not true that Tommy John surgery artificially enhances careers?
