So, maybe the writers are the best bet as voters. But one wonders if the Hall of Fame itself will always feel this way. Why? Well …
But first a piece of @baseballhall news in advance of Wednesday’s BBWAA vote results: Hall posted book loss of $2.08M in 2011.

Fisher goes on to report that the Hall has lost money in eight of the past ten years.
Perhaps this is more a function of changing sports tastes and the fact that the Hall of Fame is about the hardest place to get to this side of Hogwarts, but I’m sure that having an induction ceremony that, thanks to a silly moralizing electorate, will have no one but Deacon White, Jacob Rupert and Hank O’Day this summer won’t do much to help finances.
