[QUOTE]Here's a thought. If we start judging players eligibility based on morals instead of performance are we no better than Nazis, the Catholic church or Michele Bachmann?
Ted Williams was said to have given the finger to the crowd on more than one occasion, Manny Ramirez is public enemy number one because of PED allegations and pushing an old man who was a travelling secretary (nevermind that Pedro Martinez is a folk hero for pushing an old man who was a Yankees coach...it matters who you push, I guess), Nomar was a sour puss , who wanted to be traded, Johnny Damon had the audicity to go play for big money with the Yankees. Jim Rice and the media never got along ( he IS part of the media now...kind of ironic). Dennis Eckersley is a big hero and he is loved ny millions of Sox fans ( nevermind he pitched his no-hitter as an Indian and had just about all his success as an Oakland A). If we were to start judging players ourselves , we could probably find a few good reasons to keep everyone out. So let's just forget about it and be more concerned about who gets into Congress and the White House. There are too many people that worry about sports hall of fames, then do their civic duty and vote in elections. Problem is many of these people who do vote aren't doing any research, they are voting same as they would if they were voting for all stars. They vote for the candidate from their state, they vote for the most popular, they have very little clue what many of these people stand for and what damage they can do. Retired ballplayers cannont impact your lives the way political leaders can. This is what should concern us.

This post is WAY BELOW YOU! I really like you as a RSN / BDC poster, but lumping together "The Nazi's, The Catholic Church, & Michelle Bachman is simply low brow, Mass. liberal demagogic hyperbole??? What's your point? Are you trying to bash the Nazi's & the Catholic Church by lumping them with Michelle Bachman??? :)
No seriously..... Lighten up on the Catholic & Michelle Bachman bashing! Why is it SO EASY for liberals to take shots at the Catholic Church??? BTW... The Catholic Church is SO FAR AWAY from the fundamentalist Christian leanings of a Michelle Bachman, that I will assume you don't really know what your talking about when it comes to politics & religion. Also, as a relatively conservative Republican, I'm NO BIG FAN of Michelle Bachman, who would get CRUSHED by Jimmy Carter Obama. Also..... Why must you guys always go with the Nazi Character assassination by association???
CHILL OUT & ENJOY SOMETHING WE CAN ALL AGREE ON... The Red Sox :) :)
