Musings for a Snowy Day


Pettitte-Morris We’ve been doing a lot of debating about the Hall of Fame on this site recently, and I’m a bit late to the party. Actually, I’m a bit late to everything. People like to debate...

Hall of Fame Results


By what logic can Roberto Alomar be named on 90 percent of the writers' Hall of Fame ballots while Alan Trammell is named on fewer than 25 percent? (AP) The Hall of Fame results are...

Hall of Fame Hierarchy


Hall of Fame voters can't logically vote for Roberto Alomar or Barry Larkin without also voting for the similarly deserving Alan Trammell. Jay has the Hall of Fame pretty well locked...

Bill King among the Ford C. Frick award finalists again!


King is once again a Ford C. Frick award finalist - does anyone know if there is a way to contact/email John Miller or Lon Simmons? They are among the 15 living award recipients that will be voting in the final vote along with 5 historians. It would be nice to let them know that the fans would appreciate not only their vote for King, but their campaigning on his behalf with the other voters. They were friends of his, and they know better than most how deserving he is.

Roundtable: Accent on HOF worthies


International players likeliness to make it into the Hall of Fame with a solid chunk of Sabas love :)

The (weak) case against Dennis Rodman.

The Hall of Fame is not for supporting players. Here are Rodman's scoring averages for his three seasons with the Bulls: 5.5, 5.7 and 4.7 points. And if you're going to tell me that scoring isn't everything, I agree with you, but would also note that the Hall of Fame isn't for players averaging four or five points a game. Even though the majority of Rodman's shot attempts came on put-backs close to the basket, his shooting accuracy never reached 50 percent in Chicago, and it was 43.1 in his final season there. He couldn't create his own shot and let's not even talk about him as a perimeter shooter. Oh, what the heck, let's talk about it -- he averaged 23 percent on three-pointers for his career. Rodman was a great defensive player and bebounder, but both must be viewed through the prism of his having limited offensive responsibility.

OSS: We're Talking To You, HOF Selection Committee


Unjust... Absurd... Inconceivable... all words describing how the HOF Selection Committee continues its snubbing of Richard Dent. OSS takes a look at situation, and does it's best to make things...
