    Craig Biggio, Jeff Bagwell, and the Moral Scolds of the Baseball Hall of Fame

    Angry Bagwell, Biggio Didn't Make Hall? Blame the Houston Chronicle For Not Doing Its Job

    So you're angry about Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio. You cannot understand how a guy with 3000 hits cannot be elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame on the very first ballot.
