Lesser known facts about the Cardinals and the Hall of Fame

The stuff you won’t read in the history books The Hall of Fame results for the 2017 class were unveiled yesterday and Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines, and Ivan Rodriguez will be the new inductees. Not since Bruce Sutter’s induction in 2006 has anyone been enshrined in Cooperstown with the STL on his cap. (Remember: Tony La Russa went in wearing a blank cap on his plaque along with an expression suggesting he just watched Steve Kline blow a game.) And it might not happen again until years down the road when Albert Pujols hears his number called. That’s unfortunate, but consider this lull a...

Ivan Rodriguez's induction is great, but what of other Hall-worthy Tigers?

Ivan Rodriguez's induction is great, but what of other Hall-worthy Tigers?

The catcher was among three selected for Hall of Fame induction but its up to the Expansion Era Committee to weigh Jack Morris, Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker. This is an opinion piece by MLive.com columnist David Mayo. DETROIT -- That the Baseball Writers Association of America got it correct on Ivan Rodriguez is beyond dispute. That Rodriguez will become the first former Detroit Tigers player inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 37 years -- a span that included a World Series championship, the most enduring double-play combination in baseball history, a...

Three players will be inducted next summer in Cooperstown (and no former Twins). The 2017 MLB Hall of Fame results have been announced, and three players will be heading to Cooperstown next summer: Tim Raines, Jeff Bagwell, and Ivan Rodriguez. It was a long wait for Tim Raines, who was in his tenth and final year of eligibility on the ballot. He received 86% of the vote, a big jump from the 69.8% he received last year. The now-or-never aspect surely helped him, and he is certainly deserving. He’ll join Gary Carter and Andre Dawson as the third Expo in the HOF. Jeff Bagwell—who should...

Baseball Hall of Fame results 2017: Tim Raines, Jeff Bagwell, and Ivan Rodriguez elected

It’s been a long time coming for some of these former All-Stars. The day has finally arrived for Tim Raines. After 10 years on the ballot, the Expos basestealer extraordinaire and two-time World Series champion with the Yankees has been elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame with 86% of the vote. It’s extremely gratifying that he made it this year too, as 2017 was his final year of eligibility under the Hall of Fame’s new rules. Even with all the advanced stats that like Raines, it always puzzled me that a man with 808 career stolen bases struggled to attain this honor. No...

2017 Hall of Fame Announcement: Bagwell, Raines, Rodriguez in. Clemens, Ramirez fall short.

The league announced their newest class on Wednesday night, with former Red Sox stars having a rough night. Well, after what seems like months and months of debate, the Hall of Fame class has finally been decided. This year, the sport will be inducting Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines, and Ivan Rodriguez into the museum in Cooperstown. Based on Ryan Thibodaux’s Hall of Fame Ballot Tracker — an invaluable resource for Hall of Fame fans — Bagwell and Raines were long assumed to be inducted. The others were right on the cusp, providing some actual suspense for this year’s announcement. Bagwell...
