2016 BBWAA Hall of Fame Ballot Announced
He wasn't my favorite player growing up, but he was near the top. Even when my friends in school were getting Jordans, I had Griffey Nikes. Man, I wish I could find a pair of those now. They were some cool shoes.
Griffey was amazing to watch when he played. He is one of those players that I will tell my son about, pretty much in the same way folks told their kids about Willie Mays or Hank Aaron. I truly believe that Griffey was one of those players who transcended generations. I think I'll have a hard time finding someone who disagrees with me.
Furthermore, I think Griffey may be the reason I am waiting for Mike Trout to do something amazing. Don't get me wrong, Trout is a really good baseball player, but I think I was spoiled by watching Griffey for so long, I'm waiting on Trout to hit 80 homers and have 200 RBIs or something.
Of course, some idiot will turn in a blank ballot, and other idiots will hold Griffey off of theirs because "no one has ever been a unanimous choice, so no one should ever be..." Those people need their voting privileges taken away. Seriously.
