Five Votes

For those of you that know me at all, or have ever looked at my blog, you know that I bleed Cubbie Blue.

And I bleed more for Ron Santo than any other Cub.

Maybe it's the fact that we're both Type I Diabetics. Maybe it's the fact that he played his ass off with a disease that KILLS, and he had one of the five best third base careers in MLB HISTORY.

But today, the HoF Veterans committee voted no one in. No one...for the 6th year in a row (they vote every two years). Santo was the closest with 57 of the needed 62 votes to get in.

I will echo Al's comments: Anyone on that committee who didn't vote for Santo should be immediately kicked out of the Hall. Bar none.

Santo not being in the Hall of Fame is an absolute joke. I was just reading someone's take on why it's possible he hasn't made it (no standout performance, ego, heel clicking), and none of them seem to be enough to keep one of the best third basement out. Of course, when you hear some of these hack baseball writers, you realize the voting for the Hall of Fame is no better than the Oscars...all political bullshit.
