Is Robinson Cano on his Last Legs in New York?

January 10, 2013 | by RotoRob | Comments (2)
Rich Gossage doesn't believe the HoF should be for cheaters.
Rich Gossage thinks any writer who votes for a cheater is a silly goose.

Robinson Cano has been studly for the Yankees for many years (winning his third straight Silver Slugger last year) and with free agency pending after 2013, something has to give. He’s in the final year of a deal that will pay him $15 million in 2013, but you have to know he’ll want A-Rod money after this year. However, the Yankees are hell bent on trimming their payroll to $189 million by 2014. Something has to give here, and it will be a fascinating storyline to follow this year as we see what will happen with the future Hall of Famer.

Speaking of Hall of Famers, the 2013 class will be a lonely one as the voters failed to elect a single player for just the second time in 40 years. Barry Bonds, the all-time home run hitter with 762 majestic (if PED-aided) blasts? Nope, didn’t make it. Roger Clemens, who has more Cy Young Awards than anyone? Nay. Sammy Sosa, eighth on the all-time home run list? Not even close. Also in his first try, Craig Biggio was just 39 votes shy of enshrinement, but no cigar.

Hall of Fame reliever Rich Gossage didn’t pussyfoot around his feelings about how this wave of steroid-era players were shut out:

“If they let these guys in ever — at any point — it’s a big black eye for the Hall and for baseball,” Gossage told AP. “It’s like telling our kids you can cheat, you can do whatever you want, and it’s not going to matter.”

Wow. Impressive candor on Goose’s part. But how can anyone argue with a single point he makes?

What do you think?

Were baseball writers correct in refusing to allow any of this current crop into Cooperstown?
