        I'm thinking that if McGwire doesn't wish to focus upon things he did in the past, well then, neither do I. I say they take their sweet little time on voting him in.

        I say that his new slogan should be "Wait'll next year", then we'll see if he realizes that his skirting his past comes back to haunt him. Could take a chomp out of his memorabilia sales if he doesn't have that trophied Cooperstown enshrinement on his side.

          How the all time saves leader can be left off when Eck and and now Sutter are both in?

          Because most people who watch baseball have a really lame and unfounded idea of what a closer is.

            Yeah, the holder of the record for a particular position ought to be in. And it's not like Smith is the reliever equivalent of Don "I Just Got the Stats Because I Wasn't Injured and Played a Long Time" Sutton.

            McGwire's in. Toooooo many homers to ignore; and he's creditted with bringing baseball back after the strike. If Sutter gets in for "inventing" the splitter, McGwire gets in for that.
            sigpicIt's not whether you fall -- everyone does -- but how you come out of the fall that counts.

              Thanks.
