If Mike Mussina had been an Atlanta Brave, he'd be going into the Hall of Fame

Wait a minute. I know what you're thinking:I'm gonna piss and moan about Yankee-hating Gammonites in the Pooperstown vote. Well, you are wrong. How dare you. Nothing, NOTHING, could be further from the truth. This isn't about Mike Mussina being blackballed because he was a Yankee. Nope. He lost because of the F Troop-sorry state of the Orioles during the 1990s. If not...

With the baseball off-season moving into a little bit of a lull, the next few weeks of baseball writing often take on a decidedly Cooperstown-centric swing. Hall of Fame ballots have been mailed to the 600 or so voters, and they have until December 31st to decide how to fill those ballots out, so those of us with some semblance of a platform usually try to influence the voters while...

What my 2014 Hall of Fame ballot would look like

The Hall of Fame is set to announce its Expansion Era results Dec. 9. Most certainly, one of Joe Torre, Bobby Cox or Tony La Russa, if not all three, have an excellent chance of getting elected. If so, they would have to wait until Jan. 8 to see who would join them in the Class of 2014. Credit: National Baseball Hall of Fame     I don’t have a vote as to who gets elected, but...
