Finally, the two guys who I won't vote for in either half of the balloting:
Hodges, Gil I donít buy into him as a combined candidate, so thereís simply no way I can support him on either side. His managing record (sub .500 career mark, only one WS title and pennant) isnít what makes the HOF, but is better if you look at the teams he took over and the progress they made. My opinion is that had he lived, he might well have proven himself worthy solely as a manageróbut he didnít, and I donít get into that kind of ďwhat could have beenĒ stuff
Pearce, Dickey Iím dropping him, as I donít see enough beyond his play to merit induction.
Seen on a bumper sticker: If only closed minds came with closed mouths.
Some minds are like concrete--thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
