Kudos to Paul Molitor and Dennis Eckersley, the two newest members of baseball's Hall of Fame. Both are very deserving of their first-year inductions. I just want to take this space to push for a couple of other candidates that I hope will get their due soon. Ryne Sandberg will probably get in very soon. The Hall is notorious for not putting in second and third baseman. Ryno was the best of his time and should be in within a couple of years. I am glad to see Bruce Sutter getting more support each year. This is his 11th year on the ballot and I hope 12 will be the charm. Of all the candidates not currently in the Hall, I believe Sutter is most deserving. This pitcher revolutionized pitching by, not only being the pioneer of the modern closer, but also by popularizing the split-fingered fastball. The Hall of Fame is created to look at the history of the game and Sutter's achievements on those two points alone should put him in. On that same level I think Tommy John's unique career should give him more notice. The surgery that repaired his throwing are, now named "Tommy John Surgery" was so effective that he pitched his three 20-win seasons after the repair. He finished with 288 wins and has been the inspiration to many pitchers who've had to overcome are injuries. The other players I would enshrine are Jim Rice, Andre Dawson, Goose Gossage, Lee Smith and Bert Blyleven. The writers are very protective of the Hall of Fame for good reason. These players would do honor to the shrine however, not diminish it. P.S. I have to vote no on Pete Rose. As great as he was, the harm he did to the game by risking its integrity more than overshadows his play.
