    Why? Ain't the Red Sox fault. He did it while in Houston. Why should the players be lynched because they hired someone shitty?

    And I agree, he should be banned from baseball. I'm sure he wasn't the only one pulling this shit but someone needs to be made an example of, so it might as well be him since it's such a clear cut case.

    Baseball is the only sport where the players police themselves. Every single person who joined in did it of their own accord and knew EXACTLY what they were doing. The problem with the Red Sox in this situation though is they did this AFTER the MLB memo telling teams to knock the shit off. Then they had the brush up with the Yankees over the apple watches and stealing signs during 2018 WS.

    Manfred really should of just dropped the hammer and gave names, everyone's suspended 100 games involved, players included, and that includes Carlos Beltran who is appearing to get off scott free cause he was a "player" at the time. Instead, all he did was just punish Managers, who in all honesty do nothing other than look at a book set up by advanced scouts and he goes "Guess I'll go with the same 3 pitchers I've gone with for the past 7-9 innings" it's the easiest "coach" job in all of sports.

    Like putting this into a little bit of perspective though, Altuve wins MVP in 2017, Aaron Judge finishes 2nd. Altuve gets 6-8 million that year [pre 7/163 extension] Now Aaron Judge on the other hand, earned around 650,000 that year for being 2nd in MVP voting on a rookie contract. His arbitration this year, was 8.5 million [compared to Mookie's 23 mil] A players arbitration money is based on previous value set before a MLBPA representative that can side with the player/agent or team itself.

    If that sign stealing, ended up being the main variable in causing Judge to finish second, Altuve literally just fucked a random player out of about 5-10 million dollars of arbitration money. Which was why Fiers opened his mouth about them "ruining jobs and careers". Any player involved in it should have been decimated by Manfred, instead he wussed out and slapped their wrists.

    After Mariano Rivera got 100% votes I thought the voters were done with that stupid tradition of “Nobody gets 100%. If Babe Ruth wasn’t 100% then nobody ever will be!”
    Which is archaic and dumb as fuck but fine. So one or two assholes would hold out on a player like Griffey or Ripken or someone even though they knew for a fact that player was a hall of famer. They were just preserving a stupid old tradition.
    Then a relief pitcher gets 100%...
    Probably the greatest reliever in history but a reliever all the same. First player ever. Not Hank Aaron. Not Willie Mayes. Not Mickey Mantle or Cy Young or Nolan Ryan. Mariano Rivera.
    Fine. The tradition is over and these old fucks are going to start voting honestly according to what they actually believe and the players deserve. Here we go. Derek Jeter. Slam dunk. No discussion necessary.
    And some fucking dipshit votes no.
    Votes no on Derek fucking Jeter. Baseball is so fucking stupid sometimes.

    Im with ya hugh. I think Clemons and Bonds are pooched. Next guy I want in from the list of older ballot guys is Rolen. Always hated Schilling. Lots of guys have a fairly good claim still and there really aren't any new guys on the ballot next year.

    What do you expect from writers? Not players, or managers, or GMs/Owners. Just random writers, who have nothing to do with the sport and were "grandfathered in", deciding who gets in and who doesn't.

    I expect them to be honest. I get what you’re saying, and I agree, but do you really think the one voter who voted no on Derek Jeter for the Hall of Fame REALLY believes Jeter isn’t a first ballot Hall of Famer? No he doesn’t. It’s ridiculous to even suggest it. Anyone who covers baseball for a living knows Derek Jeter is a no brainer.
    It’s fucking stupid, like I said.
