Dennis and Andrew join the show this week to almost make a Pitchers Hit Eighth clean sweep. We discussed EVERY PLAYER on the 2012 Baseball Hall of Fame ballot, and whether or not we thought they should get in.
Using the consensus opinion from the show as a site-wide vote for the Baseball Bloggers Alliance balloting, we collectively agreed to vote for six players for induction – but you’ll have to listen to find out which ones! (Or just read the next post on PH8 that outlines who voted for what and which players had enough to go into the PH8 Wing of the Hall of Fame.)
Two notes: there was a microphone/recording malfunction around 1:23 of the show that resulted in losing some of Josh’s valued opinion on Edgar Martinez (sorry Josh!), and second, you’ll find some additional banter about the first-time ballot players if you stick around to the very end after the closing song.
Please give a listen, tell your friends, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and keep reading.
