The Hardball Times looks at what arguments might be made this year and in years to come for certain players when they become eligible for the Hall of Fame. The explicit point of this article is that the author does NOT think any of these players deserve to get in, but all might on the basis of arguments such as these. Interesting reading and a couple sentences near the end caught my eye as being true though not immediately obvious. “Fifty, 60 years from now Canseco might become a sympathetic martyr who had a terrific career cut short by the heartless establishment. Sound ridiculous? Look at how the saga of “Shoeless Joe” Jackson has transformed over the last quarter century.” How true.
