Lee Smith I understand to some extent, but Harold Baines?
I’m gonna be honest, I’m a big baseball fan and I didn’t know Baines spent most of his career on the White Sox. I didn’t even know he was considered somewhat of a fringe Hall-0f-Famer.
Actually, I don’t believe anyone other than this veterans committee considered him a Hall-of-Famer. The guy started on the ballot in 2007 and was off it by 2011, never getting more than 6.3 percent of the vote.
How in the world do you vote in a guy who only garnered 6.3 percent of the vote in his best year?!
