    my take on the hall of fame is rather simple, in 30 more years electing all our favorites we will need to double the size of the existing hall of fame! I say this we must separate era’s to do honor to those era’s of players who excelled, also increase standards would help! much whippy do on morals and ethics today or in the last 45 years! really what about the players accomplishments? typical hypocrisy! Let’s be fair about the voting by not allowing fans to vote, it should be by accomplishment on the field not by popularity contest!only admit for ballot pitchers who save or won at least 300 games, era’s under 3.00, Cy’s, and mvp’s ! hitters who dominated for at least 80 % of their careers! Also 2500 total career hits,400 homers,1500 rbi’s,batting .300
