Jim Rice deserves a spot in the Hall of Fame!

With ballots already due for this year’s Hall of Fame voting and subsequent inductions, I’m curious how The Mitchell Report will affect voters’ minds and if some players who have been on the fence for years, will finally get their due. Having read a pretty good article by a very biased Tom Caron yesterday, I am all too hopeful for #14, Jim Rice, to get the nod in his 14th year of eligibility, but despite an argument that is almost too good to refute, from T.C., I think the hall voters – most of them aged and angry writers – will again make a poor choice with Rice Let’s hope they finally change their minds about his standoffish nature towards the media in the 70’s and give this guy his due!
