The NPB has its own HOF. Matsui probably belongs there but not in Cooperstown.

It's good to stay ahead on things. Ichiro, even if he never played a single game in Japan, had a Hall Of Fame career. Love the idea of an "all Yankee connections" Hall Of Fame Class with both Ichiro and CC playing a portion of their careers with the Yankees.

I still don't want Snell here unless it's on a 1 or 2 year contract.

If Jack Morris is in the Hall, so should Pettitte be.

Graig Nettles big problem is that he played at the same time as Michael Jack Schmidt and Brook Robinson - regarded as the best defensive 3B ever. Nettles doesn't get enough credit for Game 3 of the 1978 WS either, but Brooks gets all sorts of credit for his great WS game..

Mauer getting in, only helps Jorge Posada get in. He was catching regularly right through his age-39 season. He hit .338 in his age-36 season. And if Posada would get in, then the spotlight would be turned on Thurman Munson. You…

Agree on Nettles

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
