David Ortiz was elected to the Hall of Fame over the weekend and while Ben Maller does believe that Big Papi SHOULD be in the Hall of Fame, he also notes that the baseball writers are hypocrites for letting him in.
Ben Maller: "David Ortiz crossed the rubicon. Baseball writers determined that Barry Bonds will not be voted in by the baseball writers to the Hall of Fame. They also determined that Roger Clemens will not be voted into the Hall of Fame by the baseball writers. They're off the ballot now. Alex Rodriguez will not get either, but David Ortiz is no different than Bonds, A-Rod, and Roger Clemens."
