What a travesty

Sorry to be so brash but how in the hell does Barry Larkin or Robbie Alomar not get in? This next statement may offend some people but the truth hurts sometimes. I would pick Barry Larkin as my shortstop 10 times out of 10 over Ozzie Smith. Ozzie had a 978 career fielding percentage and Barry had 976. Barry had more range than Ozzie believe it or not and the hitting stats are not even comparable. Ozzie hit over 300 ONE time in his career of 19 years while Barry hit 305 for his career of 19 years. Ozzie just had flash and pizzaz. As for Alomar I think he may be the best 2nd baseman of the past 30 years and I believe he will get in next year but he should have been a first ballot. PLEASE voters get it right next year and dont forget to put Blylevin in either. I dont think everybody and their brother should get in but these are truly deserving individuals.
