I will seventh the motion that I have absolutely no idea what kwarren's #289 means.


Quite simple. He doesn't understand the wonder of Sean. And doesn't understand that those league averages referenced are park adjusted and have pitchers removed.

Mind you, the specifics of his proposed adjustments are ... odd.

A few thoughts on the HoF election
1. Dawson is going to almost defiantly get in. Every player who got the most votes in an election but did get in on that election has eventually made it except for Hodges in 1976.
2.This year there were a record of only 13 returning players on the ballot next year shatters that with only 11.

'Dawson is going to almost defiantly get in.'

I believe Dawson will almost definitely get in. When it happens, I doubt that he will be defiant.
