    2019 MLB Hall of Fame

    The entire voting process is just silly. I mean, suddenly Edgar Martinez is a Hall of Famer this year although he wasn't 15 years ago (or however long guys are on the ballot)? In 2010, Martinez received 36% of the vote. So over 10 years he suddenly became that much better without playing a single game and gets 85%? He either is or isn't. I would also wonder how any voter could give a legit baseball reason to not vote for a guy like Greg Maddux or Ken Griffey, Jr. I would like to see the reason those voters declined to vote for those type of players.

    Lou Whitaker's Hall of Fame Candidacy

    Harold Baines didn't even suggest that Harold Baines should be in the Hall of Fame.

    Lou Whitaker's Hall of Fame Candidacy

    IF Darrell Evans gets in the HOF, they just are running out of people to put in there. He would be one of the worst players in there by a long stretch. As it is now it is simply turning into a hall of good players and above average guys. Harold Baines? John Smoltz? Roy Holladay? Mike Mussina? Those guys were good players, but really? The HOF should be for the elite players, not the good players

    Fist City: population...Rod and Mario

    Rod Allen was super annoying. It always seemed like he was talking down to the viewers. And the worst thing was the pitch by pitch recap. Mario, while not the greatest, at least wasn't grating to listen to. I don't blame him though, I think Allen would have been tough to work with.

    Rick Ankiel and Jon Garland better make the HOF in 19 or the whole thing is fixed.

    Jordy Mercer?

    I was kind of hoping that Avila would just turn the reins over to one of those vaunted light hitting, backup, minor league middle infielders he swindled away from their parent clubs in 2017.

    2018-19 Off-season Thread

    What about all those great light hitting shortstops that Avila pried loose when he raked those other clubs over the coals in all the trades he's made over the last 2 years? Bring one of them up and watch the fireworks begin.

    2019 MLB Hall of Fame

    The Hall of Fame is now a total joke. Harold Baines? I wrote in a thread last year about Eddie Murray simply hanging around 7 or 8 years to rack up some stats to get the numbers to get in the hall of fame. Harold Baines just played a long time and put up average to slightly above average numbers. Just hanging around and racking up numbers. He hit more than 25 homers one time in his career, hit over .315 one time, had 100 rbi's three times, never finished higher than 9th in MVP voting, he only led the league in one category one time slg in 1984. 22 years in the MLB. He was never a bad player, but he was never a top player either. He never received more than 10% on the vote when he was on the ballot. If you play 20 years and you are decent should you just automatically get into the hall of fame? Harold Baines is a hall of famer yet Barry Bonds is not. What a complete joke.

    Thanks, Matthew!

    There is no solution. The Lions gave the money to this guy and now they are stuck with him for the next couple years. I think he's am average to below average starter who racks up gaudy statistics in garbage time once the game is out of reach. He seems like a really nice guy though. At least it isn't Jameis Winston signed to that contract.

    Now who'll be our slow dog?

    Cabrera is washed up. I doubt if he gets 100 more hits in his career.
  11. Shane Greene reminds me of rotten eggs.
  12. For those who love to get beaten when you are down...the Lions season will still be going.

    9/17 @7:10 Minnesota Twins vs Detroit Tigers

    Look on the bright side: Greene didn't allow any runs tonight.

    On a different note, what exactly does Shane Greene save when he gets credited with a save after giving up multiple hits and runs in his one inning of work?

    9/15 @3:10 Detroit Tigers vs Cleveland Indians

    Every time I see Fulmer slated to start I don't even watch or pay attention to the game. I just know how it's going to end...well maybe not 15 runs, but it will end with a L.
