Players Who Should Be 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame Inductees

Three Isn't Enough
I believe the Hall of Fame should maintain incredibly high standards and only the elite should be included. However, with the loaded ballot, I was surprised there weren’t four players elected to the Hall this year.

Three players were elected to the Hall of Fame today, and I couldn’t disagree with any of the three choices. Certainly, Greg Maddux is a no-brainer. Tom Glavine is not far behind. I wouldn’t have been shocked had Frank Thomas not been elected, but I wholeheartedly agree that he is a Hall of Famer.

But only three?

Does Ron Santo Deserve to be in the Hall of Fame?

I guess the Veterans' Committee, which can designate former players for Hall of Fame selection, feels like it needs to elect someone every year. At least that’s the way it seems. Today, the committee announced that Ron Santo, a longtime Chicago Cubs player then broadcaster, has been elected to the Hall of Fame. Santo was a terrific third baseman and clutch hitter. He meant so much to the game and the city of Chicago as a broadcaster after his retirement. But is he a Hall of Famer?
