THE HALL OF REALLY GOOD

Jan 22, 2019 -- 10:31am

    I had someone who knows more than anyone about baseball tell me that the Hall of Fame has lowered its standards.  I don't know much about this stuff, except the joke that is the induction of Harold Baines this summer.  Tuesday the new class of Hall of Famers will be announced.  Mariano Rivera is a first-ballot guy, to be sure.  Roy Halladay? He's probably a Hall of Famer, but he's first ballot only because he died.  And Edgar Martinez, waiting more than 10 years, will be the first DH to get in.  But Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens will have to wait, as punishment for PEDS, despite being all-timers.  And our Omar Vizquel, not yet.  He's got more than 2800 hits and 11 Gold Gloves, I don't know what voters are waiting for, but it's probably 5-10 (!?) more years.  MLB Network, 6 pm
