Sorry but.....

...Ronnie Santo isn't a hall of famer. Did he have a good run - yes; was he a good third baseman - yes; is he a beloved Cub - yes; can you understand him on the radio - no; is that a good thing - yes because his enthusiasm is infectious.

But the main question: Is the Hall of Fame a lifetime achievement award - sadly no.

He's a good man and an ambassador of the game, but in a sport that measures greatness by longevity he just doesn't have the body of work on the field.

But he doesn't have to be in the Hall of Fame to be #1 in our hearts.

The case for Santo in the Hall isn't just made by Cubs fans. He's one of the 10 best third basemen of all-time. That, by itself, qualifies him.
You took the words right out of my mouth, Jason.

I think that the fact that there are only 13 third basemen in the Hall right now is probably pretty silly, and there is no question that Ronnie should be the next in.
Oh, and by the way, thanks for stopping by, Jason. We appreciate the readership.
It's just a shame there are only 9 third basemen in the HOF then.
