Not in Hall of Fame News

Roberto Alomar recently entered the Baseball Hall of Fame, but he can add another accolade to his post playing career. Today, the Baltimore Orioles announced that Alomar will be the latest entrant to their team’s Hall. He had three All Star seasons with Baltimore from 1996 to 1998 and though it was only three seasons, he posted very good stats for the squad. The Second Basemen had a .312 Batting Average for the Orioles scoring 282 Runs and winning two Gold Gloves. In that period, Alomar was able to help take Baltimore to two American League Championship Series. The Orioles…
It feels like we just discussed this topic. Like Roy Halladay did earlier in the season, Tim Hudson hit the 200 Win mark, which propelled baseball pundits to again ask if this plateau is considered Hall of Fame worthy. As we discussed with Halladay, the “Win” in baseball does not have the same lustre it used to, and it is a harder stat for starting pitchers to come by. Still, when someone hits that 200 mark, as Hudson just did, we have to ask if that hurler is a Hall of Fame pitcher or is he on his way.Hudson might…
It is that time again here at Notinhalloffame.com where we take a look at the Football Hall of Fame, and have done our revisions for the New Year. Although, there are only four new entries making our list of 100, there is a change on the top of the rankings.As much as we here at Notinhalloffame are major fans of the snubbed Offensive Lineman for the Green Bay Packers, Jerry Kramer, we have supplanted him as the number one selection for our list. In his place, is a first year candidate, Derrick Brooks, who we feel has all the credentials…

Ritchie Havens, passed away today at the age of 72 due to a heart attack. Havens is best known for his outstanding opening set at the Woodstock festival in 1969. He blended Soul and Folk and played the acoustic guitar with a fervent style, atypical of other Folk singers. Havens was atypical of other Folk acts, as he was an African American in what was predominantly a Caucasian genre. Although Havens would have many acclaimed albums, it was that Woodstock performance that he will always be remembered for. In what could have been just an answer to a trivia question,…
Amidst our excitement of the beginning of the NBA Playoffs, we almost forgot (Okay, we did for a bit), the retirement of Rasheed Wallace, who is retiring for the second time after a comeback this season with the New York Knicks. The Knicks will be entering the playoffs as the second seed in the East, but injuries have taken Wallace out of the game, and he has chosen to retire instead of join New York as they go after an NBA Championship.This brings us to our favourite question: Hall of Fame or Not? For the record we actually thought Rasheed…
Our work on the existing Hockey Hall of Fame Classes continue. We have now made our way to the year of 1973. It may not be as spectacular as the previous Class (really how could it be), but with Doug Harvey headlining it, at least we have a great name on the top. The complete Class of 1973 was:Chuck RaynerDoug HarveyHartland MolsonTommy SmithGang you know the drill. Check it out, and cast your votes and let us know whether you think they deserved their Hall of Fame induction. Look for upcoming classes soon!
As we get older, we are desperately trying to convince ourselves that “40 is the new 30”. Perhaps we should transfer that thinking to Baseball, where 200 is the new 300.The number we are referring to is “Wins”, and the 200 came to mind when likely Hall of Fame pitcher, Roy Halladay hit that milestone today. The pitching win in Baseball might very well be the most antiquated stat in the game. Even before the sabremetrical revolution, fans often looked at a pitching win as a stat that could easily be dissected. As there are anywhere from thirteen to fifteen…
