Photo of the Day: who’s missing?

Nov 26, 2013, 4:31 PM EDT

MLB Tweeted this picture after the Hall of Fame ballot was unveiled. Nice, but I think a few leading candidates are missing from the pic …

 

That’s right: No Richie Sexson. No Armando Benetiz. No Paul Lo Duca. It’s like they want to whitewash history!

    And is Piazza’s inclusion a subtle jab at the back-ance/PEDs crowd?

    Who is that in between Mussina and Maddux? Looks like a white Red Sock who is batting–I’m not sure who on the ballot that could be. And steroid-editing aside, where are Schilling and Kent? I mean, I don’t like either of them, but surely their cases are as strong as Jack Morris’ or Tim Raines’.

      Uhhh….thats Jeff Kent….You’re lobbying for the guy, you ought to know him when you see him.

        I couldn’t tell that was Kent either. I guess I only recognize him when he’s next to a pickup truck.

    Given that the picture on the “front” page for this article has what I presume to be just the HoF exterior, I first thought maybe you were making a commentary on last year’s lack of inductees. Alas.

      Poor Deacon White. Finally goes to the hall and everyone has already forgotten.

    Good thing is Tim Raines, one of the poster boys of the cocaine years, was included in that picture.

    Um, better check again … Raines is not in the picture.

      whoops, my bad. he’s right in the front row

    Don’t use the word whitewash or else Jason Whitlock will right an article about how racist you are.

      You used the wrong form of “write.”

      Second graders learn this.
