    Well, considering I think Pete Rose, Joe Jackson and Eddie Cicotte (okay, well maybe not entirely Cicotte) should be in the Hall of Fame, banishments don't matter too much to me.

        Ted never "traded" Willie McGee for Bob Sykes, Fred McGriff for Dale Murray (and dave Collins to make the Yanks a speed team), fired Yogi Berra 8games into the season, agitated to get rid of a young Ron Guidry and Bernie Williams, and on and on and on ... for the life of me I can never understand the lionization of this person, OK he made money but so did Madoff.

          I'm going to leave this election open for a few more days. I'm hoping more people come to vote.

          EDIT: I'm going to consider this election closed on Thursday, March 17 at 12:00 PM EST.
