BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-01-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rob Neyer has a piece up asking if Larkin will save the Hall of Fame next year from a non-election. Two thoughts: 1)Don't you think there's a really good chance the Vets Committee puts in Santo next year? and 2)What's the biggest jump someone has made to election in the last 30 years or so?
(Devin from Green Brook, NJ)
I don't think it's a given that Larkin gets in but there will be some pressure on the electorate not to pitch a shutout. Based upon precedent, I don't think there's ever a good chance the Veterans Committee (or the Golden Age Committee or whatever) puts Santo in - I'm going to keep betting against it and be pleasantly surprised if it happens, not to mention incredibly bitter that it took so long.

As for the other question, if you're talking about one year's gain, I don't know, but if you're talking about from the lowest to the highest, Luis Aparicio fell to like 12 percent early in his ballot career before rallying. (Jay Jaffe)
