My point is not he should get in or not, but that he is in the group of guys who are unlikely to get in under the current philosophy of the voters.

I don't even remember anymore.



2003, test I think.

if you look at all the HOF worthy players based on numbers during the 90's/2000's (steroid era) whether they were actually connected to steroids or anything else.. can you exclude certain players? can you exclude all of them? or can you put them in because they were the greatest during their time period?
there are a lot of HOF players who played during different era's it's unfair to judge them all equally together.
Manny shouldn't really be judged against the entire history of baseball, but rather during everyone else in the era he played. based on his career numbers, he should be an automatic lock..

Been there, done that: Ricky Williams didn't want to give up his pot, so he quit football for awhile (if memory serves, it was Ricky Williams).
Yes doctor, I am sick.
