Long Odds and Sports Books
Posted by: Keir Graff

It was a sad day for Cubs fans yesterday, as the geniuses on the¬†Veterans Committee of the Baseball Hall of Fame failed once again to¬†elect Ron Santo into their ranks. Not only did they not elect him, they didn’t elect anybody–and they haven’t for eight years. A hall of fame should be an exclusive club, but this is ridiculous.

Anyway, I couldn’t think of a better day to put Will Manley’s column, “Waiting ’til Next Year,” on Booklist Online’s home page. Unfortunately for Santo, he’ll have to wait two more years for another try.
