The Hall of Fame is something I've long had trouble fully wrapping my head around. There are so many angles from which to approach the whole debate that I've oftentimes found myself throwing my hands in the air and giving up on any and all discussions regarding the subject. And it seems like it happens every single year. So this year, I thought it was cool that a fellow writer had some new and unique thoughts on the process, many of which I actually agree with.
Patrick Despain, formerly a writer for WFAA, has started posting up his baseball thoughts on his own site now, and he had a piece up today in which he talked about the entire voting process and threw out some ideas on how to begin "fixing" it. With that, I'll encourage you to click the link. Really, do it. Even if you don't agree with all of the ideas presented, that's what this is all about, right? Throwing ideas out and discussing them. Patrick has had some great content in the past, and this one is no exception. So I reiterate, check it out.
