so glad to see Goose get in. He deserves it.

But I'm wondering why the likes of Lee Smith, Jim Rice, and Ron Santo, among a few others, are still waiting?

Can't comment with any authority on that, but it was a heady year for us Red Sox fans when both Rice and Lynn had their rookie season in the same year. Fred hit for avg, good speed, great defense and led the league in runners thrown out from the outfield. Jim hit for power, also a good outfielder...a tossup imo on who deserved
the "Rookie of the year" award...Fred received it.
Some years later, they invented a space age face insert for golf clubs, Woods ...unbreakable was the claim...Jim was reputed to hit the golf ball a country mile, and while testing it...shattered the inset...never heer'd much about them after that.
