Thanks to jnossal for clearing this up already, but I'm reminded of how Jerome Holtzman whined for years on this very same basis after Nellie Fox fell a vote or two short in his last year on the ballot (74.7% in his case). Evidently, he'd failed to read the sentence in every HoF election article that read "75% of the vote, or NNN ballots, were required for election." Not Jerome's best moment.

A gold star to ZL for putting Jack Morris in the Paul Lo Duca class of candidates.

True, but that only tells us what we already know: Puckett has no business being in the HoF.

That would be the "unless" part.

"given the short distances in right field"?? Take another look at the ballparks. Straightaway RF in Fenway: 380 feet. RF power alley in PNC: 375 feet. Unless LaRoche pulls them straight down the line, his "pulled" HRs are going to end up on the warning track in front of the visitors' bullpen.

Thanks for the discussion of why switching to a 13/10 split is a good idea, Joe. I tried to talk my fellow moguls into it this winter and got nowhere. I hope some of them read this. Our league is an NL-only league, so our draft situation isn't quite as dire. But we still play Ultra (40-man rosters), so the FA pool in-season is pathetic.

He\'d have to be listed as a pinch hitter.
