BASEBALL: Stop Him Now!

I agree with Matt Welch that the Hall of Fame voters need some serious education on why, when next year's weak roster of new candidates comes up, they should elect Bert Blyleven and Goose Gossage and under no circumstances put Andre Dawson in the Hall.

Here's my take from 2003 on, among others, Dawson, Ryne Sandberg and Gossage, and here's my Blyleven opus from 2000.

UPDATE: And, of course, my contribution to the mainstream of Dawson-bashing can be found in Bill Simmons' Hall of Fame column.

I cannot for the life of me understand why Jack Morris is not in, and doesn't get more support then he does.
