I gotta admit, your post is great but Dykstra? On a serious note, If I was a voter in the 80's I don't think I would have voted him. He's probably deserving to Minnesota fans and to baby boomers but I never looked at him as a real hofer. I'm a small hof guy and if you put this guy in you need to put more WW2 service guys in too.

"I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)
