Who are the Idiots ...

Who are the fucking idiots who didn't vote Greg Maddux into the Baseball Hall of Fame? He only got 97% of the vote. What excuse could they possibly give?

This has already been covered in the popular media. The name of at least one voter, and his reason(s) were given.

No - he, Glavine and Thomas were all first-time votes into the HOF.

In fact, this trio of first-timers was the first to get in since the 1999 class of Nolan Ryan, George Brett and Robin Yount.

That's great for these guys - all great players. I was a huge Braves fan when Glavine and Maddux pitched and Thomas, being an ex-Auburn football and basefall player, was always a favorite.

I agree Greg Maddux should have gotten 100% of the votes.

Also what gets me is these baseball writers all say "hitting major league pitching is the hardest thing in sports." They have no problem voting for AL pitchers who don't bat, but, can't bring themselves to vote for Edgar Martinez.
