    I'm trying to figure out where I'd put "lack of a payroll floor." Fans of the O's and Pirates seem to get royally screwed.
    I'd put no payroll floor above the lux tax, maybe even higher. If I was a Pirates fan, I'd put it #1.

    1. Black out rules
    2. No payroll floor
    3. Service time
    4. Low pay for bottom of 26 and 40 man roster players
    5. Slow play
    6. No DH in NL
    7. No robo umps
    8. Lux tax

    While awaiting some idea from Scott Boras on a way to make rookie service time workable for both sides, remembwe Bobby Grich @Rochester
    , 1970(.383/.503/.570/1.074), 1971(.336/.439/.632/1.071)...
    Orioles won pennants each year. Mark Belanger&Davey Johnson were SS-2B. Grich played short, with Ron Shelton--Bull Durham, Cobb, etc.--at 2B. If Grich had played 150 G for O's those two years, would he be in the HOF?
    Oh, ah, ah, ah, ah

    They chose... poorly.

    Roberto Alomar will have his association with the Blue Jays severed. His HOF banner will be taken down due to sexual assault allegations.
    Oh, ah, ah, ah, ah

    Roberto Alomar now has the dubious distinction of being the only Hall of Famer on the ineligible list.

    Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle were briefly banned in the mid-'80s because they were hired as greeters at Atlantic City casinos but the Hall took no action.

    Aside from the betting scandals of the 1920's, people put on the Ineligible List include:

    Fergie Jenkins - drugs and being a cool dude, reinstated
    Mays/Mantle - working at casinos and being cool dudes, reinstated
    Rose - betting, should be reinstated but won't be because he's a dickbag
    Steinbrenner - hiring a PI to investigate Dave Winfield, reinstated
    Steve Howe - 7 drug related suspensions, reinstated
    Marge Schott - being a shithead racist and sexist scumfuck, reinstated
    Jenry Mejia - PED 3 strike rule, reinstated
    Chris Correa - STL scouting director that hacked into HOU database, sentenced to 46 months in jail
    John Coppolella - Braves GM that circumnavigated INTL signing restrictions
    Brendon Taubman - HOU Assist GM/former McKinsey consultant creep who joked about DV to female reporters
    Oh, ah, ah, ah, ah
