Anyway, Walter O'Malley was INDUCTED last week in to the hall of fame. Why? Because he moved the Dodgers from Brooklyn to L.A. So now he has his own plaque. A plaque that says O'Malley was an:
"influential and visionary owner who inspired baseball's move west" and someone who "maintained affordable ticket prices while generating record attendance."And this warrants him to be in the Baseball Hall of Fame? Bull. Maybe the Adam Smith Hall of Fame, but not baseball's.
Is MLB that hard up for heroes? Oh. Right. We can't actually trust that baseball players are not using body-altering drugs to excel the the level of superstar, so we wanna be careful to select them.
Then again, I think a pretty good case can be made that O'Malley was on mind-altering drugs when he made his own mental athletics.
