Reggie Jackson: Gary Carter doesn't deserve to be in the Hall of Fame

If Jackson ever bothered to look at the numbers, Carter entrance into Cooperstown is well deserved. I guess such a task is hard for another "classy" Yankee. Keith and Ron come to Carter's defense.

Kaat and Oliva miss shot at the Hall; Ron Santo in

They needed 12 of 16 votes from the Golden Era committee. Kaat came in second with 10 and Oliva had 8 votes. Ron Santo was the only player elected. (Other sources say 15 votes, but the Pioneer Press says "all ballots," which I suspect is wrong.)

Richard Dent selects his Hall Of Fame presenter

"Chicago Bears defensive end Richard Dent has selected his college coach Joe Gilliam as his presenter. Dent is the first alumnus from Tennessee State to be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame."

NESN Asks: Is Jason Varitek A Hall Of Famer?

Well, is he? I have my own thoughts on the topic (not even close), but let's hear from you.

Frazier will get in next year!

Love his attitude, no way he does not get in after how well he handled being snubbed.

The (weak) case against Dennis Rodman.

The Hall of Fame is not for supporting players. Here are Rodman's scoring averages for his three seasons with the Bulls: 5.5, 5.7 and 4.7 points. And if you're going to tell me that scoring isn't everything, I agree with you, but would also note that the Hall of Fame isn't for players averaging four or five points a game. Even though the majority of Rodman's shot attempts came on put-backs close to the basket, his shooting accuracy never reached 50 percent in Chicago, and it was 43.1 in his final season there. He couldn't create his own shot and let's not even talk about him as a perimeter shooter. Oh, what the heck, let's talk about it -- he averaged 23 percent on three-pointers for his career. Rodman was a great defensive player and bebounder, but both must be viewed through the prism of his having limited offensive responsibility.
