Default LaRussa, Torre, Cox elected to Baseball Hall of Fame

by the Veterans Committee

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/10/sp...fame.html?_r=0

So, in Hall of Fame logic... Using PED's = AWFUL, building your managerial legacy because all your players were roided up = Totally fine

Not mixed signals at all

They need to hold their noses, and put in Bonds and Clemens.

It sucks that the logjam caused by Clemens and Bonds not going in last year (and Piazza and Bagwell), could cause Frank Thomas not going in this year. That's not right.

It will nauseate me to have to have to see larusa at the same ceremony as Thomas (if he gets in).

Miller will have to wait until the jealous old farts die, that didnt reap the awards that Miller afforded others.

What hat will LaRussa pick?
Most likely St. Louis.

The only way I could see him picking Oakland is if he wanted to really stick it to these Whitey Herzog fans. Some of those guys still hate LarRussa for benching Ozzie Smith.

As a player, he appeared in one game for the Cubs, actually scored the winning run as a pinch runner on a bases loaded walk in the 1973 opener at Wrigley. I think that was his last major league appearance as a player, so the Hall of Fame could stick a Cubs cap on him.

As a manager, he won more games and more World Series titles with the Cardinals than he did with the White Sox and A's combined, and he had a winning record in eight seasons with the White Sox. I'm sure they will have him in a Cardinals cap.
