It was announced today that Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken were voted in to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Now, I’m not a big baseball fan, but I’m a little baffled by the votes. It was announced that Ripken got the third highest percentage of votes ever for induction, but I just have one question: who the hell voted against the guy? 8 of the voters voted not to put this guy in the hall of fame. Forget the consecutive games streak for which he’s famous, only two right handed hitters in the history of the game have more homers and hits than he does, Hank Aaron and Willie Mays. This is a no brainer. The same is true of Gwynn, who had 13 people vote not to put him in the hall of fame. The guy had 19 consecutive seasons with a .300 batting average, is a career .338 hitter and won 5 gold gloves. If that’s not good enough to get you in the hall of fame on the first ballot, what exactly would it take?
