I hope his next stop is Cooperstown and it's a short wait.

I'm glad for him. Not many get to make a home for themselves throughout a long career with one organization. It takes a lot of luck to last this long as a Yankee, never mind as a major league baseball player. If the HoF doesn't want him, well it makes no difference to me because I'm proud he was with us the whole time.

Wasn't he a rookie just a couple of years ago?

4) It won't be. And if he gets there the wait will be long.

6) We's old.

One of my favorites.

Sigh, indeed.

Farewell, Jorgie, job well done.

[7]Soon they'll be no one left older than me..except for Mariano of course, who will pitch till he's 50.

12 Evil Empire   ~  Jan 25, 2012 1:00 pm

[7] That's too bad. In my view a player is a HOF'er or he's not; this business of making someone wait 15 years seems nonsensical to me. Ron Santo may or may not have been worthy, but why wait until he's dead to induct him? The debate should be settled within 5 years and then a final vote should be taken.
