Hall of Fame Results

I posted a little while back on the Baseball Hall of Fame voting process; the results were just announced this afternoon. Rickey Henderson, as expected, made it easily, and Jim Rice made it in with a sympathy bump in his last year of eligibility. The latter surprised me but I'm not bothered; it bothers me more that some sportswriters hold a vote and feel that Rickey Henderson does not deserve Hall of Fame distinction.

Jay Bell got more votes than Jesse Orosco, I found that humorous, and Mo Vaughn more votes than both of them, even moreso.
