Thank You For Not ...

4) arguing for the sake of arguing
5) discussing politics

8) making the same point over and over again
9) typing "no-hitter" or "perfect game" to describe either in progress

Hall of Fame Report
2005-01-04 11:06
by Jon Weisman
Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Wade Boggs and Ryne Sandberg, great guys from the Cheers era who were becoming too quickly forgotten, are elected to the Hall of Fame - happy about that. Of course, I can't have read Rich Lederer's stuff and be happy about Bert Blyleven's omission, and the lack of appreciation for Alan Trammell hits me wrong.

The ex-Dodger standings:

Player            Votes % (75% needed)
Tommy John         123 23.8 
Steve Garvey       106 20.5 
Darryl Strawberry    6  1.2 
Tom Candiotti        2  0.4 
Otis Nixon           0  0.0

The early days of Dodger Thoughts featured a short piece about Garvey. I have always liked Garvey, but the case is clearly against him for the Hall.
