    Hall of fame is for great players. This wall is for mediocrity. When you can be recognized for pitching 1,000 innings. It lessens the impact. FYI, I have been a Brewers fan since 1970. I was against the wall from the beginning.

    What is the difference between a "wall of honor" and a "hall of fame?" Or is it just semantics?

    I'm all for this, but I feel like it shouldn't be an automatic induction. It'd be nice to space them out and bring guys back to the park.

    They set the criteria just high enough that Gary Sheffield could not be included just yet...
