it's funny seeing how far down the list Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, and Mark McGwire keep falling... the steroid era arguably has more shame associated with it than the gambling era.

Unpopular opinion: Vlad wearing an Angels hat on his plaque is the right call, though Bobby Grich should already have been inducted.

Six players going in. Five deserving, plus an all time mistake in Jack Morris.

The BBWAA could elect four more next year in Mo, Edgar, Doc and Moose.

It would have been cool to see him with an Expos hat but his best years and most memorable moments were with the Angels

 

Next year is gonna be interesting with Marino Rivera on the ballot and the year after that with Jeter. I wonder if they'll get 100% in voting or that writer or two for whatever reason doesn't vote for them.

One of them might break Griffey's record, but 100% is tough. The BBWAA members have large egos who like to draw attention to themselves.

I see the Brewers got Yelich.

Not really that unpopular of an opinion. We just live in a world where everyone overreacts to everything, so they act like he was a has been by 2003, and never played any meaningful baseball as an Angel to strengthen their reactionary opinions.

In other words someone doesnt get their way, they cry really loud and hard because thanks to the internet, they have a soapbox.

For Vlad to have been a has been by 2003, that would've been before his 30th birthday. How many players were locks before they turned 30? I can think of two: Pujols and Kershaw, and it looks like Trout will be the third.

Also, the Brewers had a good day with Lorenzo Cain going back to his original organization after they helped give the Royals a championship.
