The folks on he Brooklyn Dodger thread at Baseball Fever are apoplectic. Rightfully so.

Here’s what I posted, in response to the news, stirring it up, as I go:

“This is, indeed, a travesty.

“That said, I hope they don’t throw you guys a “bone,” in the way of Gil Hodges. It would be insulting. Yes, he was a “Saint.” So was Roger Moore. Yes, he had big hands. So did John Holmes. Yes, he smoked more cigarettes in the course of a lifetime than anyone who ever lived. Yes, he deserves it more than the likes of Enos Slaughter, Gaylord Perry, Phil Rizzuto, Don Sutton and Lloyd “Little Poison” Waner. For that matter, he’s equally as [un] deserving as Pee Wee Reese.

All these wrongs don’t make a right.
