I've never liked the Veterans (Era) committee. It's bias, as proven by Harold Baines being accepted in 2018 thanks to his former manager and teammates being on the committee. Baines never received higher than 6.1% in the actual HOF voting for five years and fell off the ballot in 2011. There's a reason for that. He was good, but not HOF good. Yet, as with Yawkey, he got in years after thanks to a special group.

Good history lesson. Thanks.
