    SCF Baseball HOF - Rejection Committee

    This idea is NOT an original. This was something done as a bit piece on wgr550 in Buffalo several years back.

    Sample (note - will download audio as mp3) - http://www.gregbcomedy.com/yahoo_sit..._.97103158.mp3

    And with Baseball having their HOF ceremonies this past weekend, I think its time to look at this and see who should be out!

    How is this going to work?

    Below will be a list of the Players inducted into the HHOF (Executives and Pioneers are not listed). You can chose 1 player per day and kick them out of the HOF. What I would like to do is come out with 1 team (1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CF, RF, LF, C, 4 Additional Field positions, 9 Pitchers and a Manager)

    You must give a reason for the elimination from the Baseball Hall of Fame. You might face ridicule (within reason - don't go overboard) for your selection, but once you make the selection, that player is GONE, no exceptions.

    Lets start!


    I'm taking out Harold Baines. Why? Yes, he was a very good hitter and it kept him in baseball for 22 seasons but he was never a league leader, never was the catalyst for a team.. he was not the best bat for an Oakland team that got swept in the 1990 World Series. If it was not for the Veterans Committee, he would not have had a sniff at Cooperstown.

    Why must we "give a reason for elimination from the Hockey Hall of Fame" when your lists are of MLB HOFer's ? Also, you didn't give a reason on a Hockey HOFer, it's on a MLB HOFer. I think you made a typo. Now in regard to my "removable" from the Cooperstown MLB HOF, it is Ben Taylor (1B). My reason: Who in the world is/was he? I've NEVER heard about him. I've heard and/or read about most,almost all, of HOFer's. However, I've NEVER heard of him. Therefore, I think, if anyone should be removed it is him. Sorry Ben Taylor.

    NOTE: I just saw that he was voted in in 2006. Why did it take so long to get him in? That didn't happen to Jackie Robinson, "Satchel" Paige,Buck Leonard, and other "star players who, for all or most of their career, weren't allowed to play in MLB but did make the HOF and were well known. I've just NEVER heard of him.

    I am doing this in Hockey and missed that last hockey...

    I never said that it had to be a great reason - just a reason - never heard of, good enough for this

    Lee Smith

    He's an even worse pick for the HOF than Baines IMO. Yeah he had a bunch of saves but he doesn't have a low ERA which is more important and he was passed around the league forever. If he was good/dominant he would have stayed with one team longer. Would anybody take Lee Smith over any of the closers and relief pitchers in the HOF? I don't think so. And with starters being more valuable than closers and with hitters being more valuable than most closers it leaves Smith being a very weak selection at a very weak position. Bye.

    Ron Santo

    He was a very good player - 1960 ROY, 9-time all-star, a very good WAR; however, this is why he's out IMO - he retired from playing after the 1974 season and was not inducted until 2 years after his passing away in 2012. His stats did not change in 28 38 years.

    John Ward - SS I've never heard of this HOFer. He's one of only two on the SS HOFer list that I've never heard of. I know of no stats,team(s),etc. To me it's just a name on a list.
