I know everybody is up in arms about Greg Maddux not getting every vote...I am a huge Maddux fan...but I want you to consider a couple of things:

 

1. I would bet that Greg Maddux does not care if he is 100 percent.

 

2. Ahhh...how about these?

 

Babe Ruth 95%

Jimmie Foxx 3 failed attempts! and then 79%

Stan Musial 93%

Warren Spahn 83% (only had 367 wins....)

Ernie Banks 84%

Hank Aaron 97.8%

Fergie Jenkins 75.4% on third attempt!

 

This Hall of Fame lunacy is not new...it seems to transcend generations...as long as the process is how it is, people are going to have opinions and agendas...

 

incidently...I will go with Maddux 99 (highest ever), Glavine 93, Thomas 80( although I would not be surprised to see his DHing keep him out)...and Biggio 74(just missing)

That's awesome Internet Random...I must admit, when I finsished I realized I did not include any obscure movie quotes for ya...thanks for quoting the one and only Clubber Lang...

 

I really wish Clubber would have made a second appearance in the Rocky universe in some way...at one time I heard he was rumored for both Rocky V(yuck!) and Rocky Balboa(pretty good)

Jack Morris is inducted unanimously and everyone else is left out.

Damn...I was way off

 

Maddux 99-97

Glavine 93-92.8

Thomas 80-83.9

Biggio  74-74.8

 

okay...enough gloating...now I am pissed...Maddux got less than Nolan Ryan...he deserved to be the first 99...what a joke....
