  1. Podcast: All-Star preview, Hall of Fame talk

    Rob Neyer

    Just like Monday night, some booing was also heard on Tuesday's Baseball Today podcast as Mark Simon and I talked baseball! 1. Prince Fielder won the Home Run derby, but the story was a pair of players that did not homer. Did Robinson Cano deserve...

  2. Podcast: Hall of Fame talk, hot prospects

    Rob Neyer

    I had an excellent time talking baseball with Keith Law on Thursday's Baseball Today podcast. (What, you wanted us to break down LeBron James and Kevin Durant?) The show may have run a little long, but trust me, it's worth the listen! 1. With Troy...

  3. Bruce Bochy: Hall of Fame manager?

    Rob Neyer

    In writing these Hall of Fame pieces this week, I often find myself going on random tangents. Mostly, I blame Jim Caple. Anyway, I was talking with Caple the other day and I think he brought up Gene Mauch, which in a roundabout way made me realize th...

  4. Links: Darvish, Hall of Fame, Oswalt

    Rob Neyer

    Don't miss Jim Caple's piece on Yu Darvish. As Jim points out, the biggest adjustment Darvish will have to make if he signs with the Rangers is switching from pitching about once per week to every fifth day. Also, many games in Japan are played in cl...

  5. Podcast: Five-year Hall, A-Gone, Yanks

    Rob Neyer

    Mark Simon and Steve Berthiaume hosted Friday's Baseball Today and among the fun discussions: 1. Did the Yankees really hit three grand slams in one game? That was awesome. But Phil Hughes wasn't. 2. Adrian Gonzalez has regained his power strok...

    Rob Neyer

  8. Trading walks for singles, Cooperstown-style

    Rob Neyer

    I'm not sure how much it costs to access Bill James' website, but I'm pretty sure his recent four-part series on the 2011 Hall of Fame ballot is alone worth whatever they get. Taking Bill's work and running with it -- Joe Posnanski's quite the run...

  9. Will 601 saves be enough for Hall of Fame?

    Rob Neyer

    May 18, 2010. That was the day on which Trevor Hoffman stopped being a closer, and started being something else. On the 18th of May, Hoffman turned a 4-1 lead over the Reds into a 5-4 loss. It was his fourth blown save of the young season, his ERA...

  10. MVP voters don't ignore greatness

    Rob Neyer

    I'll have more nominations for the Wing of the Amazing in future posts, but Jim Caple sent me a thoughtful response to Monday's introductory post, which began with a long critique of Omar Vizquel and the Hall of Fame voters who seem to love him ... ...

  11. An imaginary place for Omar Vizquel

    Rob Neyer

    When it comes to the Hall of Fame, most of my ESPN.com colleagues are capable of logical, consistent thinking. Sure, we've all got our blind spots (mine is Amos Otis). But for whatever reason, on this site there's a relative shortage of fuzzy thinkin...

  12. One and done for John Franco

    Rob Neyer

    Maybe it shouldn't have been all that surprising that Kevin Brown was named on only 12 Hall of Fame ballots this week, and fell off the BBWAA ballot forever. But what about John Franco, who also fell off the ballot upon falling just two votes shy of ...

  13. Change will roll into the Hall, someday

    Rob Neyer

    Yesterday, Jim Caple wrote a perfectly cogent, clear-eyed look at the Hall of Fame electorate's tortured take on drugs. In the wake of yesterday's BBWAA Hall of Fame voting results, a number of other cogent and clear-eyed pieces have been written ...

  14. Thursday Throneberries

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links are just gearing up for the Topic of the Day, more about which later ... I don't know if Steve Buckley and I see eye to eye on the Hall of Fame, but even if he votes for Jack Morris but not Jeff Bagwell, when it comes to making his ...

  15. Will Barry Larkin save the Hall in 2012?

    Rob Neyer

    This will be a good year for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Oh, it won't be a great year. Not a year like 1999, when first-ballot enshrinees Nolan Ryan, George Brett, and Robin Yount packed the house. Not a year like 2014, when Ups...

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links are absolutely confident that in 2011, we'll finally have flying cars, hunger will be eradicated, and Hall of Fame voters will think rationally about drugs ... Joe Sheehan makes some predictions for 2011, and I'm kicking myself for ...
