The Kid in the Hall
Piniella and Cooperstown: Point/CounterpointLou Piniella is pretty much a baseball institution, and as we noted yesterday (twice!), one who's not afraid of showing his junk to reporters. Awww. So now that the issue of "Will he go out with a World Series win?" had been answered, we're left with this question: "Will he make the Hall of Fame?" ESPN's Rob Neyer says yes, noting that every manager with more wins is enshrined in Cooperstown. But the New York Times says no, that his .519 winning percentage and lone World Series trophy will leave him out. What do you think?
