Default Raines, Bagwell, Pudge make Hall

Nice HOF class! Tim Raines joins just Jim Rice and Ralph Kiner elected in final year of eligibility. Got to see him a lot while living in Montreal. Was a great talent. Bagwell and Rodriguez very deserving too..

Default It wasn't a rock, it was a rock Raines

Nice to see Rock Raines make it. Was as solid a player as there was. Pudge dominated during his time, was way better than piazza. Not sure about Bagwell. Wasn't he like a steroid guy ? Sox traded him for some stiff, if I remember correctly, so we were always hearing his name on bob lobel. "Why can't we get players like that " rant

I think all 3 dabbled with Steroids. Look at Raines body type as an Expo and then as a Yankee. Pudge always had whispers about him.

I don't think Raines was a hardcore juicer. Even with the Expos he was a genetic freak.

There's no question he was getting help later in his career but who wasn't and isn't? Science long surpassed the testing agencies.
