On Jan. 26, the BBWAA (Baseball Beat Writers Association of America) will announce the results of its 2021 Hall of Fame live from Cooperstown on MLB Network. The nominees must receive 75% of the vote in order to officially become an inductee. With that said, the BBWAA is an absolute farce. It has been since those self-righteous fools continue to keep some of the greatest players in the game out of Cooperstown because they played in the steroid era.
In order to be able to vote, a writer has to be a baseball beat writer for 10 years. If I had a vote, it would be very simple. I would vote for the best players. Period!
Whether a player played his career during a certain era should not be a determining factor on whether he makes it in the Hall. If that's the case, so many different eras and advantages can be cherry picked and argued ad nauseam.
Bottom line, these are the players that deserve to be going into Cooperstown in 2021.
