Ripken, Gwynn elected to Hall of Fame

Canadian Press
1/9/2007 2:20:24 PM

NEW YORK (CP) - Hall of Fame voters resoundingly elected Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Tuesday while turning their backs on Mark McGwire in a similarly decisive result.

A record 545 ballots, including two blanks, were received from eligible members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America, with Ripken being named on 537 of them.

That gave the Baltimore Orioles' ironman shortstop 98.5 per cent of the vote - the third highest total in the history of the BBWAA vote behind Tom Seaver (98.83 in 1992) and Nolan Ryan (98.79 in 1999).

The benchmark for election to Cooperstown is 75 per cent of the vote.

McGwire, whose career achievements are tainted by suspicions of steroid use, was picked by just 23.5 per cent of the eligible voters. He will remain on the ballot by receiving more than five per cent.

Rich Gossage fell just short of induction at 71.2 per cent.

Congrats to Tony and Cal! That stinks that Gosse just missed. Maybe if Big Mac finally speaks they'll give him a chance next year. Oh well.

Well, Randy Johnson was officially announced as an Arizona Diamondback on Tuesday. He also modelled the new D-Backs uniforms which can be described as Yuck. The D-Backs stole the Nationals colors.
Of course, the larger story on Tuesday was Big Mac NOT making the HOF. I guess the heck with those two other guys that did, right? Anyway, Tony Gwynn said in regard to Big Mac, that pretty much everyone (players, coaches, owners and stadium janitors) knew about MLB players taking steroids. Cal Jr., on the other hand, knew nothing of steroids when he played. Hmmm.

Let me know how it goes on the computer.
I just thought I'd let you know. I have updated most of the major FA signings and trades and after the first game, it looks like Soriano will help the club. In his very first at bad, he hit a 2 run homer into the left field bleachers.
Zambrano was on his game too pitching 7 innings and giving up 2 runs.

Final score Cubs 7 Reds 2

Prior goes next. I'll let you know if his arm holds up.

Video games are real right?

I think next year Goose and maybe even Rice get in.

Of the guys left out right now who would you all put in? I'd let Goose and Blyleven in, and I'm close on guys like Rice, Dawson, and the Tigers DP guys (Trammell & Whitaker). There are hardly any 2B in the HOF, funny. Not many catchers either.

I liked the old D-Backs unis, much better than the new ones.

i like the new colors for the diamondbacks but the uniforms are brutal... i guess "D-Backs" is hip with the kids these days or somethin'



couldn't they just go with "ARIZONA?"

"Arizona" is probably on the away jerseys.

The home jersey is not good.

Pitchers and catchers report in approx 40 days!!!

How exactly does a leadoff hitter hit a 2 run HR in his first AB?

He's not leadoff in my lineup. I have him batting 3rd. Pie is my leadoff...and he's struggling mightily.

Cardinals sign Mulder to a heavily incentive laden deal. Only 13 million guaranteed over the next 2 years with an 11 million option for the 3rd year. I like it, if he regains his form it could be a steal.

So it's been revealed that Bonds has tested positive for amphetamines.

Shocking!!

He claims he got it from Mark Sweeny.

If I were Sweeny I'd bitch slap him real hard.
