  1. Thus, Dick Allen’s — Mister Dick Allen’s — criminal absence from Cooperstown.

    It’s actually “Lord Dick Allen,” thank you very much.

  2. So, you know how the Golden Era Committee (née Veteran’s Committee) is supposed to save the HoF candidacy of players who were passed over by the BBWAA in years past? Well, that apparently doesn’t work, because the BBWAA selects the ballots for the committees to vote on. Dick Allen was not one of the 10 on the ballot this past year.

    It’s so frustrating, because it’s just writers– not players, not sabermetricians– who hate the guy.
