Ya think so, detective?

As I’m sitting on the Hall of Fame’s website waiting for them to annouce the Veterans’ Committee inductees, I look at the latest headlines in the lower lefthand corner. One of them is “Maddux to retire Monday; Hall could beckon”

As a cautious sort, I would like to praise the Hall of Fame for not making any unwarranted assumptions and prudently inserting the word “could.” I mean, it’s entirely possible that Maddux could gun down a playground full of special needs kids between now and his year of eligibility, and boy, wouldn’t the Hall’s web staff have on egg on its collective faces then!

The only game worth playing is betting on what % Maddux gets when he’s elected. He’ll go in his first year, has the milestones, everyone loves the guy, and he has no steroid taint.

92%?

98% But some old curmudgeon writer will leave him off his ballot for reasons of “integrity”.
