This sounds like an updated version of an old Pamelyn Ferdin Movie of the Week.
The Hall of Fame announced on Wednesday that no players were elected this year.
“I am absolutely amazed that Craig did not get in on the first ballot,” Bagwell said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. “I hurt for him because I know it means a ton to him.
“I hurt for Craig because you’re talking about 3000 hits and you don’t get in on the first ballot, that sucks. He deserves to be in right now.”
Bagwell received 59.6% of the vote in his third try, up from 56% last year.
“For me, it’s okay by me about me,” Bagwell said.
It is not okay for Bagwell about what happened to Biggio.
“That’s ridiculous to me,” Bagwell said. “It doesn’t make any sense to me and I think it’s a travesty.”
Bagwell is also disappointed for Roger Clemens, the seven-time Cy Young Award winner. In his first time on the ballot Clemens received 37.6% of the vote.
“Arguably the best pitcher that’s ever graced this earth,” Bagwell said. “I understand everything that’s gone on and I understand a lot of that stuff.
“It’s just weird to me. For Rocket not to get in, I knew he wasn’t going to get in. It just sucks.”
