    Re: Henderson and Rice Elected to the Hall

    Must have been a slow year.
    jk

    Rice never struck me as a no doubter but his numbers and his stature during his best years make him a HOFer in my opinion.

    Oh, and I can't WAIT for Rickey's speech!


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Rickey is going to tell you all about Rickey.

    Truth be told, I met him a couple times, and he may be my favorite modern era baseball player. That doesn't mean we can't have a few laughs at his expense.

    100% Injury Rate: The definitive Rickey Henderson

    I hope you clicked the above link, it is worth your time.

    I think he is the last player of his type we will see for quite a while. Supposedly he had a thing with his eyes where he could see from second base to home without having to move them, where each eye could work independently.

    Rickey is awesome.

    Re: Henderson and Rice Elected to the Hall

    I talked about this in a thread earlier today. I kind of wish Rickey was going in by himself. That would have been amazing.

    How the heck does someone not vote for Ricky Henderson? I hate the voters, they are all stupid.

    They justify it as Mickey didn't go in with all of the votes. Seaver didn't go in with all of the votes. Rickey isn't going to either.

    It's stupid.

    I'm probably in the minority, but I wouldn't have voted for Henderson for that exact reason. Baseball has a richer history than any other sport. If the all-time greats couldn't get into the HOF with a unanimous vote, Henderson shouldn't either. It's not like those couple dozen voters have any impact on whether he makes the HOF.

    What happens if to many people think that way and a sure fire HOFer doesn't get in because of it.

    I think the vote should be Does Rickey Henderson belong in the HOF? Yes or No.

    Not OK Ruth got in with so many votes so I'm not going to vote for Henderson because he might get more votes then Ruth.

    He gets in next year?

    I look at voting as a measure of greatness. Is Ricky Henderson the greatest MLB player ever? If not, he shouldn't be the first one to reach the HOF with unanimous support.

    Ricky Henderson was the greatest player of the last 30 years hands down!
