Hall Of Fame Debate: Gimme Five!!!

Hall Of Fame Debate: Gimme Five!!!

I thought that this would be a fun way to start off the ‘Hall Of Fame Debate’ at 30-Year Old Cardboard.

What I am seeking is your list of five eligible players that you would give your vote to for Hall of Fame election.  Your list can be made up of players that have been on the ballot for several years or guys that are fairly new to the list of eligible players.

**My one requisite is that you omit any/all of the players that are eligible for the first time in 2013.  So, no Bonds, Clemens, Schilling, Biggio, Piazza, etc…  We will discuss those guys, I promise, in great detail.

But for now, I want to see what kind of dialogue we can get going about the players on the prior ballots that have yet to make the cut.

I am going to participate in this as well.  You can say that am giving myself five, if you wish.

And here they are, in random order:

Tim Raines

Lee Smith

Alan Trammell

Rafael Palmeiro

Dale Murphy

Agree or Disagree with my picks?  Great, let’s chat about it.

Ultimately, I will compile a list of all of the players that make the cut in your eyes and try to examine their careers further.

Thank you for your participation.  Have a great night!!

‘Hall Of Fame Debate’ – The Archives

‘Hall Of Fame Debate’ – The Archives

Some of the most spirited dialogue on this blog has come as a result of the Hall of Fame topics that I have brought up in the past.

So, as I continue to work towards debuting this new weekly series at ’30-YOC’, I thought I would try to get you in the mood for a little ‘Hall Of Fame Debate’.

Here are some of the things that you can expect to see in the coming Thursdays:

1 vote for the Hall of Fame – Bagwell or Biggio???

Chipper Jones May Be The Best 3rd Baseman EVER!!!

Voting For 1: Trevor Hoffman OR Andy Pettitte

Cast Your Vote: What Hat Should Gary Sheffield Wear Into Cooperstown??

Let The Numbers Do The Talking: Maddux VS Johnson VS Clemens

Is Edgar Martinez Hall of Fame Worthy???

I think that is enough to whet your whistle…

The new topics will begin next Thursday so stay tuned.

Coming Soon To ’30-YOC’ – ‘Hall Of Fame Debate’

Coming Soon To ’30-YOC’ – ‘Hall Of Fame Debate’

I think that you’re all going to really like this!!

I try to bring a few regular events to ’30-YOC’ to give you something to latch on to that appeals to what you like about our wonderful hobby and this amazing sport.

On Sundays, I offer you my ‘Top Ten Lists’.
On Mondays, I feature a card of the newest subset that I am building.

And now, I am ready to introduce the newest weekly event coming to 30-Year Old Cardboard.  It is called, ‘Hall of Fame Debate’.

And it is exactly what it sounds like!  Everyone has an opinion, whether right or wrong about the state of the Hall of Fame and its current and possibly future members.  I have written a lot about it in the past, but I have never really organized the posts very well.

Well, that is all going to change.  The Hall of Fame posts that I have written in the past have been some of the most spirited on the site.  As a matter of fact, they are my inspiration for creating this new weekly series.

And it will launch on Thursday nights!!

So, stay tuned to ’30-YOC’ so you too can voice your opinion about all things that are Hall of Fame related.

The first step in this process for me is to comb through the 7,600+ posts that I have authored on this blog and load the appropriate ones into this newly created category.  And then from there, it will be time to go!!!

Thanks for reading.
