The current baseball Hall of Fame voting system is kind of a joke. As an example, Houston isn’t even properly represented by writers who LIVE IN and COVER Houston! Nor are MLB.com writers part of the mix (even though Alyson Footer has long been a great baseball analyst for MLB.com).
Biggio will eventually get in. Bagwell deserves to, but it may not happen under the current system.
Personally, I like Dan Le Batard’s maneuver. Open the process up a bit more — that cannot possibly be worse than the clown show we have at the moment.
UPDATE: The Le Batard story has a Houston Chronicle angle, and that angle doesn’t make the Chron‘s pitiful little baseball/soccer scribe Jesus Ortiz look too good. This may be the only time you ever see me linking Olbermann, but he’s spot on with this!
