Hall of Fame Things

Two different posts examine where the National Baseball Hall of Fame is these days. Darren Rovell of CNBC wonders what is going on, since attendance is flat and the inductees aren't exactly scintillating.

I haven't been to the Hall in six years. It's an long day trip but I just haven't made it back yet.

From the LoHud Yankees blog, Chad Jennings says the Hall is making some changes to the Veterans Committee voting.

My take? Dumb. I don't like it at all. Just go back to having a Vets Committee that reviews all eligible every year and make some informed decisions. Don't base it on "eras" and such. Just take those who were overlooked by the writers(and those outside of the voting realm, like owners and other influential types) and vote on them. This is rocket science.
