Because they were Hall of Fame tier players.Also how the hell are Martinez and Mussina hall worthy???
No it isn't. You can have a case that it's ridiculous he was the FIRST one to do it unanimously, but not that he was unanimous - that's perfectly fine. Many before him should have been unanimous. That stupid stigma by voters that "because Player X and Player Y didn't get in unanimous, then NOBODY should," I'm glad that's finally over. And on top of that, Rivera, greatest reliever OF. ALL. TIME. Not just "a damn reliever" as you'd like to state. He pitched 141 innings in the playoffs and allowed 11 runs. More people walked on the moon than scored on Rivera in the postseason, for crying out loud.it's ridiculous that Rivera went in unanimous
There is no way that is accurate.One did plan to originally and then changed his vote, wonder if he was influenced in any way.
I already know one writer who says he won't vote for Jeter but not because he thinks Jeter is not a Hall of Famer - he does - but because he says he sees 12 HOFers and can only vote for 10, so he'd rather use them for guys that could use the vote.I don't mind Mo getting 100 percent. Gwynn also should've been 100%, but in the past it didn't happen. I wonder if Jeter gets 100.
You dont have to reveal your ballot.Rivera got 100% because ballots can now be revealed and no writer wants the backlash of being the guy who didn't vote for Mariano. The same will happen with Jeter. If ballots were secret then you'll always have the ones that say "I don't vote for anyone on their first ballot no matter who it is."
Not sure this voting transparency is good either. It's like when kids ask each other what's cool and what isn't cool and many kids just agree with the majority just to not be left out... that's gonna start happening with many voters now. Anonymity allows truth... transparency hides it.
I'm just saying. You dont have to reveal anything.I thought they said you do now after all is said and done.
Who cares, though, he got the one hundo.
