Among those members of the BBWAA that vote on Hall of Fame inductions, there are 28 complete idiots.
28 people did not include Rickey Henderson on their Hall ballots.
Of course, Rickey made the Hall anyway.
And I don’t buy the argument “they thought he was worthy, they just didn’t want it to be 100%, because he wasn’t unanimous worthy,” because that’s idiotic reasoning.
Someone like Rickey Henderson, who absolutely redfined a position (leadoff hitter) and did it better than anyone, maybe ever, deserves to get into the Hall, and on the first ballot. That should be the only decision these people have to make. Not some amorphous guess at what the percentage should be. That’s way too stupid, meta-voting, navel gazing if you ask me.
Hey, moron, stop worrying about what everyone else will do, stop worrying about percentages and whatnot, and just vote yes or no. Anyone that votes no on Rickey in the Hall is an idiot that should have his voting rights removed.
