LIVE YANKEE IN-GAME CHAT: TONIGHT AT 5

Yeah, I'll really want to drive to Cooperstown to attend this

Can't wait for tickets to go on sale. Bring extra Kleenex for the tears of joy. A former used-car dealer, who orchestrated the first labor shutdown of a World Series, who then turned a blind-eye to steroids so X-box style home run records could bring back the fans, who tried to kill off Minnesota's team so it would benefit his own, who did everything he could do to crush the Yankees while favoring his good buddy Fred Wilpon on the Mets, who once tried to put movie logos for Spider-Man on the bases, who wanted to hold world World Serieses with the Japanese champion, and whose lasting decision - making the All-Star Game outcome determine the site of the Series - just got deleted in the new labor agreement. Oh, yeah, I can't wait for that ceremony. Truly one of the all-time greats. Ruth, Gehrig, Selig... that's how I see it.

I think it's time for us to realize that the "Baseball Hall of Fame" is merely a family-owned, privately run roadside attraction in Upstate New York with as much historical relevancy as the World's Largest Ball of Twine.

John and I were thinking this at exactly the same moment. Amazing.

Ah yes. I had to turn off MLB radio because it threatened to have Selig appear at a podium to acknowledgement his enshrinement. I am too old, too soon. A reality show President. A plaque for the Man Who Cancelled the World Series, alongside the plaques of Real World Series Heroes. It is only appropriate given this political season, which has highlighted self dealing at the highest realm, that the Hall of Fame enshrine Greed. This Bud's for you.

Duque, it must simply be the miscarriage of justice that drove both of us to recognize the stupidity of this enshrinement.

A sad day for baseball. Selig was a terrible commissioner, even with most commissioners being nothing but tools of the owners. What a joke.

Bud can have a plaque next to Tom Yawkey, owner of the Red Sox plantation that resisted signing African American players.

Could not have said it better myself.

SICKENING.......I STILL REMEMBER WHEN THE SCUMBAG SELIG AND A BUNCH OF OTHER PRICK MAJOR LEAGUE OWNERS ORDERED FOOD SERVICE FOR THEIR CONFERENCE ROOM MEETING...... THE BILL WAS WELL OVER A THOUSAND DOLLARS AND SELIG AND THE GANG LEFT A $9 DOLLAR TIP......TO THINK THAT SCUMBAG GOT IN, AND KING GEORGE DID NOT IS SICKENING.

The Hall of Fame lost all credibility with me the instant I found out Yogi Berra wasn't a first-ballot inductee....And now Bud is in, while a far more deserving and (to my thinking) far less destructive force like Pete Rose stands outside and gets spanked year after year. Fuck the Hall.

I hope the underwriters approve his application.

You'll be pleased to know that the loan application was approved in slightly more than one hour. All we have to do is send them a copy of Hal's passport and bank account number and the money is ours.

My only concern is that we need to assure the underwriter that the "Applicant will keep to our loan terms and condition and that this loan will not be use for mass destruction, drug traffics or any other thing contrary to the law."

I'm not sure if "mass destruction" of a storied franchise disqualifies us....
