Yesterday four men were elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Mariano Rivera was the first unanimously selected player to the Hall of Fame with 100% of the vote. As a Mets fan, it’s hard to say this without sounding biased, but while I’m glad SOMEBODY finally got 100% of the vote, it’s hard to believe Rivera was the first player EVER in the history of baseball that deserved it. Ted Williams, Willie Mays, Tom Seaver, Ken Griffey Jr., the list goes on for players should all SHOULD have gotten 100% also, but I digress. The past is the past!
Congratulations to Rivera, Mike Mussina, Roy Halladay, and Edgar Martinez! How many more days until Opening Day?
