Fun Cards: “Baseball Immortals” Curt Schilling ***SNUBBED***

Schilling Snubbed

Curt Schilling failed to receive the requisite 75% for the Hall of Fame. He has two years remaining on the ballot, so induction seems inevitable…just not this year.

Fun Cards: “Baseball Immortals – SNUBBED” Curt Schilling


Does Curt Schilling talk too much? Yes. Should that affect his Hall of Fame candidacy? No. He has a 79.6 WAR. He struck out 3116 batters. He finished 2nd in Cy Young Award voting three times. Three World Series rings. Once he was the World Series MVP. And don’t forget THE BLOODY SOCK. This guy’s performance SCREAMS Hall of Famer. But he just can’t keep his mouth shut.

The tracker shows him at 70.5%, needing 156 more votes to reach 75%. Generally, the numbers go down when the final totals are released, so it does not look like 2019 will be Curt’s year.

Hall of Fame polls on Twitter

In advance of the results, I’m running a few polls on Twitter…log in and vote!

Ichiro’s pre-MLB days; a pantsless Psycho; a heated Hawk

While browsing YouTube this morning, I came across some neat videos of Ichiro Suzuki batting against MLB pitchers while still in Japan.

I also found Steve “Psycho” Lyons dropping his pants…

…and Andre Dawson going batty after a bad call…

I love how Dawson says the ump was being unprofessional during the post-game interview. Hello, kettle! Meet the pot!

YouTube is so awesome!

Blogging Ballplayers

Most people that read this blog are probably already familiar with the blogs I am about to mention, but I figured I would throw it out there for those who are not aware. There are three ballplayers that are pretty active in the blogosphere:

* Minnesota Twins pitcher Pat Neshek
* Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling
* New York Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes

Of course, only pitchers can have a blog since they are lazy and don’t play everyday. They sit around eating burritos and pizza, playing on the internet while the shortstops and centerfielders are out busting their tails in the field. And don’t even get me started on how hard catchers work! There should be an entire Hall of Fame dedicated to every player who ever put on catcher’s gear…those guys are workhorses! But pitchers? They have plenty of time to waste. (And if any major league pitcher happens to run by this blog, please know that I’m only joking. I know how hard you guys work too. I’m just having a little fun.)

Are there any other players that have regularly-updated blogs/websites?
