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

      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.

      "It was like coming this close to your dreams and then watching them brush past you like a stranger in a crowd. At the time you don't think much of it; you know, we just don't recognize the significant moments of our lives while they're happening. Back then I thought, 'Well, there'll be other days.' I didn't realize that that was the only day." - Moonlight Graham

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

          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.
