Is Piazza the first gay member of a major sports hall of fame?

If Piazza had played in Milwaukee, nobody would have voted for him.

Piazza got in because of his bat; he was a first baseman in catcher's gear, because he couldn't frame pitches, throw out a runner, or call a game to save his life.
Also, Torre got in as a manager not a player, and Ted Simmons isn't a HoFer.

Name 1 player with more grit and clutch than Dave. Oh that's right you cant. Also he won rings in both leagues. Elite.

But since he didn't do roids to jack up his power numbers he's undeserving. Hes basically Jeter with slightly less power but way better defense.

Props to the writer who had the balls to vote for Eck.

I misspoke about Rivera being in the Hall, I forgot he's only been gone a year or two.
Point being, given how Rivera IS the greatest closer in history, he will get pretty damn close to 100%, but not quite unanimous; there will be "that(those) guy(s) who left Mariano Rivera off his HoF ballot".
Derek Jeter isn't even a top 15 SS and he shouldn't get 100%. Now do you know what I mean?

>His most famous client, the man whose career he was credited with reshaping and saving from mortality’s shadow, was Derek Jeter. In 2010, a few years into Riley’s makeover, The Daily News proclaimed: “Derek is turning back the clock at short.” ESPN declared that Riley had “dumped the Captain into a hot tub time machine” and turned him into a 25-year-old.

Significant caveats are in order here: No evidence has emerged linking Jeter to performance-enhancing drugs, and Sly did not connect him to banned substances, although he boasted of helping other athletes obtain them. And a connection to Sly, Riley or anyone else is hardly proof of any wrongdoing.

I know, I read the article a couple of times (mostly because it's manning proof).

I still think there's a pretty good distinctive connection between Jeter and someone associated to HGH

Not that I really care for HGH. I'm not as adamant about steroids being this big evil monster as many others are.

But he's a cheater and should be hung from the gallows.
>>
>>64729160
Al Jazeera just released a list of names for people that they thought used HGH with little to no evidence. Do you really think that Jeter's name wouldn't have been on that list if there is even a slight chance of evidence?
>>
>>64729077
I think he should, along with Bonds and Clemens. You can't pick and choose who "looks like they roided" or have no evidence of roid use like the idiot writers are doing; the pitchers should consider themselves lucky, as almost all the deserving ones except Clemens got in without a trace of suspicion or rumor-mongering about roid use.

>>64729089
yeah but none of the others you mentioned were the greatest ever to play their positions. And catcher is the hardest position to be and stay elite at long enough to have a shot at the Hall if you do it full-time without eventually transitioning to first base and/or DH for half your career.

Video testament by a guy who worked at the clinic, video of the drugs in the guys fridge, video of a player coming to his house. The Guyer institute then lied about him not working there in 2011 (it was proven he did). The Guyer institute lied about never supplying HGH (Bob Kravitz confirmed he received some from there, and the doctor in question was part of a medical indictment for illegal Chinese HGH)

There's plenty of evidence about the HGH scandal being real, most people are just writing it off as a non-story because 1) Muh peypey 2) people turn a blinds-eye to steroids/hormones 3) muh arab terrorist news

There's more evidence, like big shipments of HGH to Peyton's house under his wife's name.

I hate it when people say there's no evidence, there's a shit ton of fucking evidence.
>but muh the guy recanted his story
Oh so he spoke about things like pig brain peptide and explicit illegal drugs in countries like Toradol and linked them to specific players, but because he recanted his story *AFTER THE FACT* that therein it was really just a big hoax?

I mean sheesh.

But to answer your question, I'm just shitpostingly trolling you about Jeter, I don't think he actually took HGH (to any grand degree like Peypey). I just wanted to butt-bother you.

No team had the balls. White Sox wanted 3 year max contract and every other team didn't want to pay for an aging player. He is 31.

The announcer said it near the end of the first video. "Piazza has dominated Clemens". When that play in the series happened I was yelling at my TV for Piazza to bash Clemens in the face.

Does anybody really believe that Alex Gordon is worth the 4yrs/$72mil? I know he's had a couple good season and came through with some clutch hits in the playoffs, but $18mil a yr seems a bit hefty for someone, who, in my opinion, falls under the "first round picks that didn't pan out" category.

>>
>>64735474
I get he is aging but what makes you say that he is the worst? They(the Royals) are bringing up some talent from their farm to help cover slack from Gordon's age that will be apparent in the back half of the contract. While this is the highest contract the Royals have given it helps Moore set precedent for the 2017-18 FA when he will need to try to keep as much of the core of the team as possible. With the power dup of the infield's contracts up in 18, Moose and Hoss, Moore and the Glass family have some choices to make
>>
>>64729077
He and all the other roiders should but they won't because the baseball writers are the most moralizing faggots in the history of existence. They treat baseball like a fucking religion and anyone who dares to taint its image should be burned at the stake.

>>64735226

So was Piazza.
>>
>>64738270
To my knowledge, Pudge was only linked through Canseco's book. And Canseco's book was meant to promote the use of steroids, so it's likely he was just trying to drop as many big name players that he could, whether they were guilty or not.
>>
>>64739191
Which is why it's a tough one. It could go either way. But wasn't Pudge linked more than Piazza was?

No or you'd need to add one to every guy's stats.

Ruth and all the guys of his era played in babby parks against shitty pitchers and shitty fielders without ever having to face a black guy. You could put asterisks on every one of their records.

Mays, Aaron, Mantle, etc. all used amphetamines. You could put asterisks on their whole careers.

Bob Gibson and Sandy Koufax put up their absurd stats with a higher mound and larger strike zone. Asterisks for them.

Steroid era is no different. Everyone was roiding and a handful of guys still stood far above the rest. They're no more deserving of asterisks than anybody else.
