The BBBWARAOAAE has spoken, and the player who most deserves Hall of Fame enshrinement is…

Pete Rose

One of my personal favorite topics of discussion is the worthiness of players for the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Nearly everyone has an opinion about who does and does not belong, and who has been overlooked by the BBWAA voters. The most overlooked player, according to the BBBWARAOAAE, is the all-time hit king Pete Rose, who is not eligible for enshrinement under the current rules of the Hall of Fame. Others who received votes are PED poster boys Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, stars of the 1980s Tim Raines and Alan Trammell, and old timers Bill Dahlen and Tony Mullane.
