The last sentence is a little strange.

If Harold had spent his whole career with the Sox he might already be in the HOF, thats just my opinion but when you have a great career and its all with one team the powers that be, I think look at that in a favorable light. Look at Jim Rice, Harold was just as good as him but Rice spent his whole career with the BoSox and sits in the HOF.

Hilarious!!!!

The Onion has come up with some pretty good baseball-related articles over the past few years. Some of the funnier ones have been where PNC Park was threatening to move to another city unless Pittsburgh gave it a better team and the article where the Tampa Bay Rays said "**** You, Cubs" after winning the pennant last year.

....this one is yet another classic from them.

Based on Rice's numbers, Baines and Fred McGriff SHOULD BE in the HOF.

But neither one of those guys played for Boston, the team that has something like 5 or 6 baseball writers voting for the HOF. Neither one of those guys will get the Eastern Seaboard Propaganda Network to back their bid for the HOF. The HOF has become the Hall of the Pretty Good, anyway.

The article was priceless, though...

That is fantastic stuff--absolutely priceless. I guess it only goes to show what most of us in Flyover Country know to be true when it comes to media presence and fame--to paraphrase the song "New York, New York", if you make it there, they'll make sure you make it everywhere...
