Bill James on the Hall of Fame candidates.
Summary Bonds: “you have to honor him, but I’d make him wait”; Clemens: “an obvious Hall of Famer”; Piazza: “sure”; Sosa: “I probably wouldn’t”; Biggio: “sure”; Schilling: “probably above the line”; Lofton: “probably”
Later in the show: Raines: “absolutely”; Walker: “not high on my list”; Trammell: “a Hall of Famer”; B. Williams: “probably not”; E. Martinez: “I think so”; Morris: “I wouldn’t vote for him”; D. Murphy: “I wouldn’t vote for him”; McGriff: “probably above the HOF line”
And finally, Bagwell: “Pass.” (Okay, fine, they forgot to ask him about Bagwell.)
There was also a casualty- and Bushmills-free encounter with Larry Bowa. And the next day (Friday), the show cited the BBTF Ballot Collecting Gizmo.
