Hurts So Good


Ray Ratto delivers the best–and least self-important–Hall of Fame column of the season.

The vote comes this afternoon and word around the web says that Maddux, Glavine, Biggio and the Big Hurt all make it.

Jay Jaffe’s got the scoop.

Used to read Ray's stuff in the San Francisco Chronicle. This was refreshing.

3 out of 4 ain't bad. No dice for Biggio...yet. Damn, he got 74.8 percent of the vote.

Kudos to Ratto and Le Batard. The hypocrisy of these baseball writers who vote against these deserving players make me sick. I look forward to the end of this generation of baseball writers. Their hypocrisy will not be missed.

4) Unfortunately, they'll just be replaced by a younger generation of hypocrites. LOL

I am being optimistic that every successive generation is less hypocritical.

Now, THAT'S some true optimism.
