The HOF is...

When it's voted on by people who cover teams there is room for bias. Imo throughout history there were better players than Mariano who received the only 100% vote.

When you get down to it, certainly 'good' and 'clean' are admirable qualities, but would the baseball HOF be complete without Ty Cobb? Cobb was neither good nor clean, but one of the greatest baseball players to ever stand on the diamond. The Hall is filled with drunks, reprobates and scoundrels but were stellar performers between the foul lines.... but if you cheated (scheming to steal signs) between the foul lines... that's where I draw the line. If you cheated on your wife in every away city you played throughout your career, you may not be allowed in the Husband Hall of Fame, but if you hit .375 throughout your career and you were faithful to baseball, there's a spot in the HOF, and rightly so. True, It's not the Hall of Good and Clean, but there's no place there for people that sullied the integrity of the game.

I guess if I saved used tinfoil and used tea bags instead of old comic books and old baseball cards, the difference between a crazed hoarder and a savvy collector is in that inherent value.
