BDD: The Insignificant Hall of Fame

At Baseball Daily Digest, I lay out my reasoning for not caring about the Hall of Fame.

I can’t imagine why a Hall of Fame induction would change anybody’s opinion about anything. Was Van Halen any less of an incredibly awesome rock band before their 2007 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Did you look at their discography and think to yourself, “They were good… but not ZZ Top good”?

    I agree. With the recent inclusion of Andre Dawson, who’s career OPS+ was equal to those of Steve Kemp, Rusty Greer and one-time Phillie Phil Bradley, coming on the heels of last year’s induction of Jim Rice, they should start calling the place the Hall of the Very Good. Or maybe, the Hall of the BBWAA members’ agendas.
