A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Hall

Now we know who screwed up by not voting this time around for Harold Baines. It was the Chicago Tribune's Phil Rogers. It wasn't anything malicious, it was just an honest mistake.

I can certainly relate. I've made plenty of mistakes. Phil mentioned that if even one of Harold's other staunch supporters didn't vote for him this year, he wouldn't have been able to look Harold in the eye again. This is just a prime example of the devotion this player has in his followers.

I get the impression that Phil won't let this ever happen again. He'll check his ballot ten or more times if necessary to make sure that Harold's name is checked off next year. Maybe this will translate into a few more votes next year. Stranger things have happened. I can see the Baines campaign in full swing now. Let's hope it continues to pick up steam.
