Mike and Mike were talking this morning that yesterday through an e-mail to Greenie that Schmidt thinks they should change the HOF voting....it's cruel to drag guys out for 15 years like Rice or 12 so far for Blyleven.
He thinks a simple yes or no, 5 years after you retire should be enough. Either you are in, or not, your statistics will not improve. What did Rice do this year to warrant election, 20 YEARS after he retired?
I don't want to hear that DiMaggio would not be in the Hall -- past votes might have gone differently had it been one-and-done.
Do you think baseball or other HOFs should be a one-shot deal? Or reduce it to 5 years from the 15 baseball has now...?
