BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)With Larkin getting just over 50% on his first ballot, is he a lock to get in eventually? What's the over/under on how many years? Thanks.
(KerryFam4 from Atlanta, GA)
Aside from guys currently on the ballot, everybody who's gotten 50% of the vote from the writers has gone in eventually except for Gil Hodges. Which thus bodes well not only for Larkin but also Jack Morris, who gained about 8 percent this year - a big jump. Without thinking too hard about the coming attractions on the ballot, I'd guess Larkin is in within five or six years. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-09-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did you see this recent news: Joe Torre, Ron Santo and Gil Hodges, among others have been added to the Veteran's ballot. Any thoughts? It would be ironly appropriate if Santo got voted in by the Vets.
(Matt from Mt. Albert, ON)
You know, I didn't see it. Torre should go in, certainly for his WS rings, arguably for his playing career, definitely for both when you combine them under the "general wonderfulness" clause that also got people like Red Schoendienst in. Santo is a no-brainer. The arguments for Gil Hodges as a player are kind of weak, unless you want to say that his one title as manager puts him over the "general wonderfulness" line. I don't know that I do. (Steven Goldman)

2009-10-12 15:00:00Phillies/Rockies Playoffs RoundtableAs bad as Jimmy Rollins has been this series, he hasn't been as bad as Jason Kubel was against the Yankees. That really deserved the Gil Hodges '52 Postseason Goat Award. (Steven Goldman)
2008-10-27 16:30:00World Series Game FiveJoe: Aw, I don't think we have to grade Maxvil on a curve. Actually, my aging brain remembers one of the most famous 0-fers in the history of the World Series, one that dogged the player's rep for a number of years and probably has contributed to keeping him out of the Hall, Gil Hodges, 1952. All his subsequent Series appearances were good to great, but I don't know if he ever lived down that 0-for-21. (Steven Goldman)
