Great article on espn.com by Jerry Crasnick banging the drum for former Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Roberto Alomar to be a first ballot hall of fame “inducty”.
I don’t know my baseball history all that well, but I can tell you that I am fairly certain no better player at their position has ever suited up for the Jays (excluding any player who was only a Blue Jay for a cup of coffee). No one earned their stripes in Toronto as Robbie did.
The stories on the guy off the field were the stuff of legends, but who cares, the guy could play.
I hope politics don’t get in the way, and I hope Robbie gets in.
