Famers on the Fringe, Part III

>> Thursday

(That's "Famers," Matt, not "Framers." That's "Famers," Mike, not "Farmers.")

With this year's Hall of Fame ballots due on Dec. 31, ESPN.com takes a closer look at four hotly-debated cases: Jim Rice, Andre Dawson, Bert Blyleven, and Goose Gossage--all players who received more than 50% of the vote last year.

So while they waste their time doing that, we at YCS are here to handle the other end of the spectrum--the guys with no shot.

December 26 -- Scott Brosius and Paul O'Neill
December 27 -- Eric Davis and Devon White
December 28 -- Wally Joyner and Dante Bichette
December 29 -- Bobby Witt and Harold Baines
December 30 -- Jose Canseco and Ken Caminiti

December 28--The Journeymen

Wally Joyner

The case for Joyner:
Joyner was honest in admitting his steroid use after his playing days ended. Electing Joyner would help combat the poor example of other, less honest major leaguers by showing kids that honesty truly is the best policy. And baseball, above all, is about kids.

The case against Joyner:
His name is Wally. That might be considered a boon to his case in some circles, but not in this reporter's humble opinion.

Dante Bichette

The case for Bichette:
He averaged .300, 30 HR, 120 RBI roughly during his seven-year run of dominance in Colorado. He also had a mullet, a big gap in his teeth, and a sweet homerun pose.

The case against Bichette:
He put up those numbers in Colorado. I could put up those numbers too if I played in Colorado. Pat's grandma could put up those numbers in Colorado. Pat's grandma carrying a piano on her shoulder, running backwards, and missing her left leg could put up those numbers if she'd played in Colorado. Literally. That's how thin the air is. It's that thin.

(I realized this bit lost whatever degree of funny it may have had two days ago, but there's no turning back now. I'm seeing it through, damn it!)

If anyone has a case against their going to the hall, it's Alexander Hamilton. He only had one shot and missed. The man couldn't even kill Aaron Burr!

Apology to YCS readers. History Major.

I purposely picked Hamilton to test you since I figured he's the least recognizable famous founding father. Congratulations--you proved yourself as big a history nerd as I'd hoped. Your prize is me calling you a nerd.

How about a $10 bill as a prize, instead? It would be only fitting.

Now wait a minute, Wally World was the 80's / 90's version of Eckstein? How can he not be a HOFer...well at least he'll always be on my list of All-Time Hustlers
