Next year should be a large class with Maddux, Glavine, Biggio, probably Jack Morris being inducted.

Baseball writers are the most pretentious fricks in all sports media.

this. I love them taking the high road on Roids after making headlines for a decade or so with the product the steroid era produced. I have an extremely hard time believing any writer saying they had no idea it was going on.

So they were either lying OR they're just stupid/oblivious and really bad at their jobs.
