Is this site going to survive the rebuild? You know the answer.  

I have only been here 14 years, three months, and two days.  So I haven’t been here since Adam and Eve but I’ve been here a pretty long time. And just as Tiger337 once gave “rookie of the year“ awards — of which I was a worthy recipient —  I am going to honor the people who have made this place what it is. I am going to honor the people who were here and are still here or who have since left, for whatever reason,   and who have made this place worthy of the time and attention to which many of us devote so many of our waking hours. 

I am hoping to honor a new person every day until it is too boring or repetitive to continue. PM me about whom you think should be added.  I already have quite a few people in mind for either rational or sentimental reasons but I am bound leave some people out. Make sure I don’t do that.  There are a lot of people who haven’t been here in a long time who also need and deserve to be recalled fondly.  Even the villains. 

I am honoring Lee first because he is the first person I thought of.  One of the most astute observers of this game anywhere. He is one of only three MTS posters that I have ever met face-to-face. Without him this place would  be much less than it has been these past many years. 

Feel free to add your own comments  about each days honored recipient or whatever else strikes you as pertinent.

Also it’s about the baseball side of the site.  I am ill-equipped to note those who spend a lot of time in the political forum, or other forums.  If you have 69,000 posts in the political forum, well, God bless you but that’s not what this Hall of Fame is about.  It’s baseball only.

Lee wrote a book about batting average. I didn’t buy it though because batting average isn’t a great stat to evaluate players. There are so many other things behind batting average that are useful to consider. 

I've heard rumors he was juicing when he wrote that, should he really be a 1st ballot HoFer?

I stand behind this selection!

well guys are going to have to go in at their  'positions'. We have game thread creators - they would be like our starting pitchers - they need their own wing - Bert/KL2. The game day stalwarts - LG, LS, our contract and rule book mavens eg. Shelton, Edman. The minor league masters - Cruzer, Micro........
