Ryne Sandberg - Baseball Hall of Fame, Class of 2005
Congratulations to Ryne Sandberg, my favorite player once I became old enough to understand how ERA was calculated.
One other "Mazel Tov" to Wade Boggs. Margo Adams aside, I always had a soft spot for Wade because his sister had multiple sclerosis. My father suffered from that affliction as well.
Bruce Sutter picked up votes and looks to be a good bet for 2006 induction. Andre Dawson remains in a holding pattern.
In other good news, Darryl Strawberry received only 6 votes. That means he will no longer remain on the ballot in future years. THAT means we don't have to hear stupid East Coast Media Bias stories about how Stawberry should or shouldn't be consiered. He won't.
Also, some sick pleasure in seeing Jack McDowell eliminated as well.
