    Alomar was a no brainer and I think Blyleven deserved it, but look at the snubs. Taking the juicers out, Larkin was one of the best SS ever, Lee Smith was one of the best closers ever and he did it clean (Relief Pitchers are part of the game, its is an injustice that voters exclude the best at the position simply because the position is a RP), Martinez ditto for DH, Edgar might have been the best DH ever and why is Mattingly so low!

    The Juicers (or suspected ones) where knocked out:
    Bagwell (not surprised, since he looked so much like Big Mac, he was going to get lumped in with him), Larry Walker, Big Mac (Not here about the past), Palmerio (Sorry dude you cheated), Juan Gone (Good, I hate this giu)

    I can't believe Mattingly hasn't gotten in yet.

    Larkin probably deserves it. Bagwell was juiced without a doubt. The guy came back that season twice as big as he ever was before. Larry Walker probably doesn't deserve HOF, though. He wasn't THAT good.

    Palmeiro was the worst of the juicers because of how adamantly he denied using steroids. I don't have a problem with the steroids themselves, I have a problem with the lack of integrity these guys have shown since being called out on it.

    The "Hall of Fame" has become a joke. They are all taking steroids and none of today's stars are worth a plug nickel. Why...Back in my day we played with broken limbs!!! Pieces of broken glass were strewn along the first base line- and we had to play barefoot!! We used 2x6's that weighed 90 lbs as a bat!! The pitchers threw bricks!!! These pussies are gutless sissies!! Why, if I hadda penny for every piece of shit ballplayer that was in the Hall of Fame..why i'd ....I'd have a dollar or more!!! Fuck you youngin's!! [​IMG]

    Ken Stabler is the biggest snub for the Pro Football HOF.

    Maybe the biggest snub ever for ANY HOF.
