    How did Robby Alomar not make the HOF

    The guy is clearly one of the top 5 second baseman of all times. I realize he spit on an umpire. That is no reason to not make the HOF. THey need to take away the voting from Sportwriters and give it to someone else. Like players and GM's.
    Sportwriters are a bunch of old guys who get bent when a player does not grant an interview.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I'll scream the idiocy of him not being in as soon as Blyleven gets in.

    Uh, the biggest "tool" was Alomar himself. Breaking news: if you're a jerk your entire career, you won't get any favors...

    Bonds was HOF good pre-steroids, should that matter?

    I certainly would have voted for him, but just sayin' that if he had been a nice guy, we wouldn't be talking about this.

    Enhancing your performance is different that being an idiot...

    The Bonds situation will be very interesting when he becomes eligible for election.

    Re: How did Robby Alomar not make the HOF

    He'll make it. The voters are just very stingy about 1st ballot HOFers.

    As they should be.
    Reserved for people like Cal Ripken.

    Re: How did Robby Alomar not make the HOF

    Robby Alomar was better at Baseball than Cal Ripken. Cal Ripken was better at dealing with the press and having everybody like him.
    Robby Alomar was actually considered to be a really nice guy before the spitting incident.

    Re: How did Robby Alomar not make the HOF

    There are a few voters who think that the first ballot HOF players need to be super super stars - the Willie Mays or Hank Aaron types. Alomar doesn't quite fit that mold, didn't make it to 3000 hits, never won an MVP award. He will probably make the HOF in the next year or 2.
