It’s been a while since I tapped into doing some MLB Content! So, I thought I’d get some reaction to the ongoing Astros and Red Sox scandals along with some Hall of Fame talk.
For that, Johnnie Black (@jball0202) and Joe Ricotta (@theriot326) join the show for some analysis.
As members of the BBWAA deliberate individually over whose name they will put that check next to, debates abound on social media. Each year we attempt to look back to evaluate and decide who should join the greats in the hallowed halls in Cooperstown, NY. I don’t have a vote, but if I did, here are the players that would get my check.
It is difficult to be a fan of Major League Baseball and not know the name, Larry Walker. If you talk to the Colorado faithful about the name, it is an aspect of Denver sports legend. The Major League Baseball Hall of Fame nominee list includes Walker for the ninth time. It means because of the reduction in eligibility, from 15 years to 10 years, Walker has only two total attempts to be inducted. Will his chances continue to grow this year?
In a crowded field of 1st-timers on the ballot that includes Mariano Rivera and Roy Halladay, can Todd Helton become the first Rockie enshrined in Cooperstown? Or is the Coors Effect too much to overcome?
