Strawberry Makes it onto HOF Ballot


Recommended Posts

Ok, I'm not much into baseball anymore. I use to watch it years ago, but I thought he was good. Did he do something wrong? Sorry if it seems like a dumb question. I probably just forgotten.

Read the article, it outlines his off field drug problems that rival Steve Howe.

Basically over the span of his career his numbers don't even compare to the most base HOFer. He's basically on the ballot due to His incredible talent, not what he actually did.

I read this article before it was posted here, but... doesn't it seem a little biased to anyone? It's like the author of it had a huge grudge against him, so much so it made it very unprofessional.

But I do agree, it's a joke, and he brought nothing but shame to the game of baseball. There was a time when players were roll models for kids.... oh well...
