Wednesday Morning Rant

I read an article on The New York Times website today regarding the Veteran's recent strike-out on the Cooperstown vote.
Near misses included a 5 spot for the Cubbies, a famous hurler, a long time "blue" and a hard charging negotiator. The question has been asked, "Should the Cooperstown Veterans be able to decide who joins their club, or should the news men make the list?"
The problem with the hall of famers is cronyism. Why vote for a Union Chief that may or may not have negotiated the right salary for me? Why vote for an umpire that may or may not have made a questionable call against my teammate? Why vote for a pitcher that didn't play in my era when one of my less-deserving buddies is on the list?
I'll tell you who should vote. The fans! Isn't baseball for the fans? Aren't the fans the ones filling the Cooperstown coffers with entry fees and souvenir purchases? Should we be the ones to decide whether Charlie Hustle gets a plaque?
I'm finally willing to agree with Joe Torre (even if he is a damned yankee). Torre was quoted as saying, "It's a shame because it benefits nobody."
