JoePo Talks Hall

Anything by Joe Posnanski is worth reading (I just finished his Buck O'Neil book; review forthcoming). And since the Hall of Fame has been in the news lately, I recommend JoePo's take:

The BBWAA as moral arbiters? A group that includes Jay Mariotti? And how do you continue to justify the inclusion of guys like Ty Cobb and Cap Anson? This situation's got more slippery slopes than an episode of "Wipeout," but at least there'll always be something to talk about when it comes to induction into the Hall.

At least Robbie had the sense to wear a tie, too.

I bet Blyleven is farting during that photo.

For a second there I thought "the spitter" was Tiger Woods.

I bet Blyleven has a buzzer in his hand.
