HOF Snub

All along many thought the Roberto Alomar was a shoe-in to the Hall
of Fame. But, the few votes he didn’t receive were because of his past
and treatment of umpires.

Marty Noble of MLB.com punished him for it, and I believe rightly
so, after he appeared on the MLB Network and defended his decision.

The top five HOF votes:

Andre Dawson 420 votes 77.9%
Bert Byline 400 votes 74.2%
Roberto Alomar 397 votes 73.7%
Jack Morris 282 votes 52.3%
Barry Lark in 278 votes 51.6%

Until then, see ya in Cooperstown.
