And, for the record, I think the HOF should induct meaningful players not any schlub who was pretty good for 10-15 years.   Of course, I've said this over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.  
Who have we argued about that was only "pretty good" for 10-15 years? I don't think anyone is arguing for Greg Vaughn for the HOF.
Just Mikey being Mikey.  Trying to twist and turn things around....over and over and over and over....

If the HOF is for the hardcore fan and wants to stay that way, so be it.   As I said, I don't think The Met should cut back to make it more "art fan friendly" because it is what it is.

But, as "fandom" goes, baseball is moving in the wrong direction.   For the eleventy billionth time, I don't think you can make the game more fan friendly without changing the integrity of the game so, if there are other avenues to bring new fans in/old fans back, they should be explored.   The HOF is one of those. 

Would you agree that the NFL is the most popular American sport?  A few years back people were saying "The games are too long."   I thought "**** that. It's more bang for my buck."   But the smart guys in the NFL home office said "We need to address this."   When the most popular American sport isn't afraid to look into how they're doing business, you'd think one on the decline would do the same.   But, that's OK, baseball is fine.  Quit talking about it.  
What cracks me up is you commenting about how to improve a HOF that you say you have never been to. Now that is some meaningful input!

I've never been to prison but I don't think that sounds like a lot of fun.    Can I have an opinion on prison or must I serve time first?

I too, am amazed at the depth of Mike's thoughts on this topic. He really goes the extra mile, so to speak.

I'm not shocked at how stupid his arguments typically become.

Dumb and dumber commentary.   Thanks for that.

No need to.   The HOF is bloated with good, not great, players.    If someone is going to the HOF to see the Koufax display, maybe they can skip over Rizzuto.   If they're going to browse, they're going to get bogged down with the good players.   You don't need a lifetime pass to know this.

Maybe we should just stop putting in any new members to the HoF.  I mean, we can't let it get any bigger!
