This is a well-written piece and it shows that at many times, friendship is more valuable than wins and losses.
A couple years ago I looked at the potential Hall of Fame classes for Cooperstown and realized that from 2014-2016, those three years will be filled with great classes. Today, it was announced that Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux and Frank Thomas will be this year’s enshrinees.
I expected those three to be first ballot selections and they are. As an A’s fan, seeing Thomas get in is a personal joy as he help lead the team to an impressive and fun 2006 playoff run. His joy is my joy.
