Default Minnie Minoso

Put him in the Hall of Fame, dammit!

Draws a walk at 80. ****, I'm 19 and I'd probably **** myself up there.

If you ask Minnie he will tell you he is 77.

I agree with the rest of your post though.

You know we as Sox fans should start a campaing to get Minnie in the Hall. Not sure but does anyone know how you send letters to every single living Hall Framer alive today?

Two Sox from the Go-Go era should be in the HOF: Billy Pierce and Minnie. They should go in together.

Probally but i think you could make a stronger case for Minnie and for a grass roots campaing you would want one thing to focus on.

Hell yes! Damn does he deserve it.

And let's get this done while he's alive.

Santo's annual bridesmaidery gets big media coverage, and that's fine, but Minoso deserves the cameras and newspaper articles just as much.

I'm afraid that the new Vet committee rules might make it even more difficult for him to get in though.

You need the local press to be on the band wagon, I don't see that happening.
