For those of you that dont know Marty Noble is a writer and a HOF voter. He is not good at either one.
His comments prove that we need another type of HOF system. The writers voting doesnt work.
I didnt vote for Alomar because he spit in an umpires face, and the way he played with the Mets.
He then said:
I will vote for him next year
So Marty Noble in his power chair gets to play who is in and who is out based upon his personal feelings despite how good the player is. I am sure other writers did the same which is why it needs to be taken away from them. Too many of these guys have an ax to grind, or want to take out some low self esteem frustration on the athletes that they couldnt be.
As a Mets fan watching Alomar play was frustrating but that dont take away from the fact that he was the best second baseman I ever saw hands down beore he was a Met. If Jeff Kent is a lock HOF'er, then Alomar should be a lock squared. I wonder if Noble would have voted for Willie Mays....he stunk with the Mets too. I also wonder if he would have voted for Ty Cobb who stabbed someone, and beat up a husband and wife in the stands.
As far as "voting for him next year". Thanks Marty so Alomar gets punished by you morons because you feel like it. Either someone is a HOF'er or he isnt.
Any time you leave something in the hands of judges or voting without some kind of scoring system it becomes corrupted. Examples....any olympic sport, boxing, all star game selections, and the HOF. I dont have the answer to HOF criteria, but the writers should be eliminated.
