Great comments by you there, Darren.

Olbermann's logic is so fuucking flawed it's sick.

Let's see, the American League instituted the DH rule, sanctioned it and made it a part of MLB baseball.

MLB backed this and it's been part of MLB since

... April 6, 1973–Opening Day–Ron Blomberg of the New York Yankees became the league's first ever designated hitter. In his first plate appearance, he was walked on a full count by the Boston Red Sox pitcher Luis Tiant.

https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/american-league-adopts-designated-hitter-rule - Seems to me this establishes some sort of acceptance, legality and proof.

The National League, when playing interleague baseball in A.L. parks follow this rule and have a DH.

American League pitchers never bat (ok, I'll give on the 1/2 of 1% that it happens).

The above FACTS clearly establish one irrefutable, undeniable and indisputable conclusion according to Asshat Olbermann:

No American League player, be it batter, pitcher, fielder, reliever should have any place on any Hall of Fame ballot. ONLY National League players must be considered HoF worthy.

Furthermore, should any National League ballplayer EVER DH in an interleague MLB game, he automatically loses his right to ever be considered for HoF induction.

Now this will clear up forever all decisions by those erudite writers who are privileged enough to be voters. Eliminates most second-guessing and shrinks the pool.

Way to go, Keith Olbermann.

I still always marvel over this pedestrian stat line by an unworthy HoF candidate:


.579 / .652 / 1.053


That's Edgar's career batting line against Mr. 100% votes, the unhittable Mariano Rivera.

140 Ballots submitted and counted... Edgar holding firm with 128 votes cast for him entrenched in 3rd place, the only hitter likely to qualify for the HOF this year, behind closer Mariano Rivera, dead starter Roy Haladay, and ahead of starter Mike Mussina who split his career between Baltimore and New York.

He is now +14 on pace for +40. He only needed 20 new votes so looking awesome...........

Pretty epic article on guys in the HOF that don't deserve to be their and vice versa. No way I could get through it but if you are on a flight from Sea Tac to Swaziland it might be a good read. Lots of ex Mariners that are as good as the worst players in the HOF.

144 ballots in out of 412. Edgar is on 130 of them at 90%. Needs 179 more votes. Looks like Bonds and Clemens are right on the cusp at 74% and 75%. Still looks solid for Mariano, Haladay, Mussina and Edgar!
