Major League Baseball Hall of Fame voter Ron Cook has again blanked out the ballot for the third year in a row.
Members of the Baseball Writers Association of America revealed something surprising during their appearance Cook & Joe Show.
Hi Ron – what the hell are you doing out there if you’re not voting for anyone? I’m not saying you have to go all out, but you look insecure and pretty annoying.
Cook boasted of his high standards
In a radio interview, Cook said, “I consider myself a very tough voter.” He mentions that he never voted for any steroid players (Bonds, McGwire, etc.). He also said Pete Rose didn’t deserve to be inducted into the Hall of Fame because he broke the rules related to sports betting.On the other hand, don’t rush to DraftKings, FanDuel, etc. to watch his event in Sports Today. I can not do it.
Cook then blurts out that “baseball writers do things differently” than the NFL’s HOF voters, because NFL voters don’t have to look at a player’s character when deciding whether they should be elected. I’m here.
You can listen to the full segment here.
Cook looks pompous as hell for boasting that he is such a “tough voter.” He’s a great guy, but this isn’t about you. In the meantime, Ron hangs out in the air-conditioned press box, eats free catered food from various MLB ballparks, and then walks away from him. has decided not to support the athletes watching.
Why do I hate games covered by writers?
However, Ron is not the only problem.
Some of these HOF voters are the absolute worst. They legally make everything about them. A stereotypical high school otaku who has no friends because he was always trying to be the teacher’s pet. This is their way of feeling the least relevant. Maximize your Napoleon complex. “Fufufu, I’ll show you.” No, you just come across as pathetic.
Think of every baseball player throughout the history of the game. Did you know that only former New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was unanimously selected?
Cal Ripken Jr. didn’t even get 100% of the HOF votes when he was elected in 2007. He broke Lou Gehrig’s record and NOBODY will never do it again. Off day. Still, there were eight of his HOF voters who didn’t elect him.
Are the BBWAA members out of touch with today’s game?
Naturally, some baseball fans are wondering what Ron would be doing as a voter if he wasn’t there. He actually knows to vote. Also, should there be some kind of rule that if I don’t vote for 3 years in a row, I’m on probation for voting?
I’d also like to know who Cook deems worthy of being inducted into the Hall of Fame. The fact that he’s left it blank for his third year in a row – I’d really like to know a modern-day player he thinks fulfills his utopian outlook.
I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t think everyone deserves a plaque in the hall.
Being inducted into the Hall of Fame is literally the greatest thing you can get in baseball. You are forever enshrined among the greats of the sport. Some of these his BBWAA members have to get off their high horses. you are ruining the game.
