Hawks an Expo

with 2 comments

The Hall of Fame really fucked up by not letting Andre Dawson in as a Cub, but as a Montreal Expo. A freakin Expo, is this some kind of lame joke? The hall messed up because there is money to be made as him going in as a Cub. Are there even still Expo fans? Okay okay, I’m sure the two who cared that their team moved to D.C. will show up to support the Hawk, compared to the millions of Cubs fan world wide.

It was no secret that Dawson wanted to go in as a Cub, so what’s the point to not honoring a great player’s request? It’s a real shame that his request wasn’t respected or granted.

The Hawk did put up slightly better numbers as an Expo but do those slightly better numbers out beat an MVP as a Cub? I don’t think so, I think an MVP award or winning a World Series destroys slightly numbers any day of the week.

  1. I’ll agree the player should have say as to what cap he wears into the Hall. However, this is the BBWAA we’re talking about here. There are 5-10% of them that won’t vote Maddux into the HoF. No one ever accused them of being fair or accurate.

  2. I didn’t say somebody said they were fair and accurate. I would just like to know what the thought process was for them to put Dawson in as an Expo. It really doesn’t make much sense.
