At least, according to this guy, who already published his ballot and left Rickey off (presumably to make room for Matt Williams)

Rickey can still be unanimously elected to the Surf Dawgs Hall of Fame, though....

With a name like "Corky", I'm not surprised. Ironically, I have first dibs to tar and feather the moron. It's an obvious publicity stunt, which is working very well....that is, if you like to get reamed by every major sports writer across the country for your idiocy.

It doesn't matter, Rickey will still set the all-time record for highest voting percentage for the HOF. I'm guessing he goes in at 98% or higher.

We'll all find out on Monday. Fun times!

How is it inappropriate? I was just wondering what it would be like to have sex with somebody that fast... I'm sorry, I'm just very curious that way. I kind of mentally envision a lot of "haha... I'm over here!", "ha, now I'm over here... you can't catch me!" which must make things interesting...

I don't see that as an inappropriate question seeing how you, who I assume to be a grown man or woman, have such a hard-on for a middle-aged former baseball player.

It's actually kind of creepy the obsession you have with the guy.

You only wish you had the various restraining orders like I have filed with Rickey.

Oh, now that you put it that way.....yeah, it's awesome. I'd take a video, but you wouldn't see anything.

It looks like Mr. Idiot had 27 friends.

In any case, congratulations, Rickey! (I'm sure gorickey is proud.) And how, exactly, did Jim Rice not get into the HOF until now?

http://web.baseballhalloffame.org/ne...&vkey=hof_news

(As much as the 28 people who didn't vote for Rickey were idiots, what about the 6 people who did vote for Mo Vaughn? I didn't know he had that many baseball writers in his family....)

Voters are funny people, enough said.

Immensely happy for Rickey nonetheless!

Cannot wait for July 26th now....

Rickey is the best lead off man of all time - and yet some guys didn't vote for him - the hall of fame is pretty much a pile of poop in my opinion. east coast bias put Jim Rice in - 14 years and not being a hall of famer and now you are.



maybe they will throw my guy bert in - only 3 years left

There is some unwriten rule that no one is going to get unanimously elected
