I Will Comment Further, Later

Hall Of Fame results are in:

Rickey Henderson - 94.8%

Jim Rice - 76.4%

Rickey's totals are a bit low, but otherwise it sounds right to me.

I've long been a supporter of Rice's case for the Hall, but by no means do I fancy him an upper-echelon member of Cooperstown. He's not on the same floor as Musial or Williams, but I see no problem placing his plaque next to Lou Brock or Joe Medwick.

Congrats to Rice and Rickey, who did spend some time (however briefly) playing for the Olde Towne Team.
