Hall of Fame Stupidity

On January 9, 2007, in General, by Neil Stevens

Mark McGwire didn’t get voted into the Hall of Fame this year. What a joke. He’s not even a cheater by any standard. If I recall correctly, Selig and Fehr didn’t see fit to ban steroids until after Big Mac retired.

Congratulations, BBWAA. You’ve just slighted every HOF member by diminishing the utility of the honor.

Just to elaborate: if the rules of the game aren’t what determine what’s cheating and what isn’t, then we’ve taken a black-and-white, right-and-wrong objective measure of honesty, and turned into a subjective quagmire of shifting standards.
