3K Ks. Maddux bound for HOF?

Yeah, he might be all about himself--BUT--he behaves himself off the field. That's not the nicest thing, being all about "me" but he's never done anything to tarnish the image of the teams he's been on or of ballplayers in general. Unlike Maddux. I think they should both go in, because I believe it's supposed to be about what goes on inside the lines. But I don't get a vote. And I can see where some of those who do might give some weight to off-field activity.

3K Ks. Maddux bound for HOF?

Seriously, Clemens is a jerk in a different way that should reflect less negatively on him in the minds of HOF voters. I can see where you might compare the two, but it's not the same if you really look at it.

Cursed by the Casual Fan?

There are always some fans who are more fanly than others. If you ignore the bandwagoners, they pretty much evaporate of their own accord as soon as the excitement they thought they were gonna find goes away. And seriously, truefans have more to think about than other people who may or may not be fans. Instead of bitching about other fans, write a letter to one of your underappreciated players (and every team has them--in the bullpen, on the bench--guys who don't get enough love). He'll be happy to know someone cares.
