    Right on Greg.

    The writers should have elected Biggio as a sign that we respect players that excelled WITHOUT cheating. I hope the "Juicers" never enter the Hall unless they buy a ticket.

      It is up to the veterans committee now.

        Piazza was no great shakes defensively either. Too frequently position players are enshrined that have only marginal skills in the field. It is still the Baseball Hall of Fame and not the Batters Hall of Fame. The complete player is and will remain the thing with me.

          He got better as he got older. No he wasn't terrific, but he had a good head for the game. His bat spoke more than his defense. If I recall, he passed the great(and my hero) Johnny Bench for most HR's by a catcher.

            Sorry for the long silence, this last few days have been caotic for me.
            Thanks for your kind messages and support.
            I do hope the veterans will make justice to Murphy and I too hope the cheaters never make it to the HOF.

              Piazza was probably one of the best hitting catchers of the modern era, and did surpass Johnny Bench in HR
