Rosenthal responds to recent calls for HOF voting to let the sun shine in. His answer is NO. I very much appreciate the work Mr. Rosenthal does in providing information
and analysis. But, the battle he puts up here to defend his turf is surprisingly empty, & makes me
suspicious of him. For the first time following an HOF or CY Young vote, we have
24 hour a day, 365 days a year baseball radio stations, plus just about as much access
to baseball information as he has. We are taking back this process. I'm posting Ken's article here.
Rosenthal says the writers
have long "coveted" the idea of baseball voting. After seeing the tears, the families
involved, the millions of dollars not just to the player or team, but from all of us
fans who get jacked around---this is not a thing that should be "coveted."
