It's official, the writers have decided that Roberto Alomar & Bert Blyleven are going to be inducted into Cooperstown this summer. I must admit, that I am pretty disappointed in the choices this year. Please don't get me wrong, I think that they were both very good at their game, but it's the Hall of Fame, not the Hall of Good ! I know, Alomar is one of the best 2nd basemen to ever play the game, even if we ignore the alleged HIV transmission claims made against him. But really think about it and think about the legends that have preceedingly been inducted into the Hall over the past decades. Do these two REALLY muster up to having their bronze plaques hanging next to the all-time greats???

Alomar & Blyleven- HOF Class '11
What about Lee Smith & Barry Larkin? I would have voted for them over Alomar and Blyleven...but what the heck do I know? I'm just a lowly baseball blogger, and not an all-mighty professional baseball writer. Congrats anyway to Alomar & Blyleven for getting in...I ask the question every year...when is it gonna be Pete's turn to get in?
