HOF Vets--WTF??

Well, the old boys at the HOF got it wrong again. No Curt Flood, no Ken Boyer--two of the most deserving Cardinals didn't even come close. But I have to say the most glaring omission this time has to be Ron Santo. I'm usually pleased as punch by anything that goes against the Cubs, but I have a hard time understanding this one. The guy's numbers are certainly there:

And considering he played his whole career under the shadow of debilitating and life-threatening diabetes (that has claimed both his legs), those numbers are even more astonishing. I guess the fact that his Cub teams never made postseason appearances carries more weight than I thought. He's gotta be one of the worst broadcasters ever (though I get a perverse thrill listening to him about have a stroke every time a Cub does something stupid), but I really thought he was a shoo-in. Then again, I've thought the same about Flood and Boyer for years too. Wow. What a crock.
