    using the steroid era as an excuse to exclude Maddux. I'm sure Maddux really needed those roids for his 86 MPH fastball.

    Greg Maddux, whose Hall of Fame career was with Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs, will go into the HOF this summer without a team logo on his cap.

    That's bullcrap. He, like Randy Johnson, were very good in there first stop, be it Chicago or Seatlle, but all-Time Greats in Atlanta and Arizona.

    The HoF needs to step up and choose for the player. It means a great deal to a fanbase to have a player wearing their team's logo in the Hall. I'm gonna be pissed when Randy goes this route. Despite 4 Cy Young's, a World Series, a World Series MVP, and a Perfect Game in Arizona.

    I don't give a shit about sentiment.

    Maddux is a Brave.

    Johnson is a Diamondback.

    Obviously YMMV since I'm assuming you're a D-Backs fan, but I'll always think of the Big Unit as a Mariner. Maddux should go in as a Brave though, I agree with that,

    You can think something just fine, but 75% of Johnson's success came in Arizona.

    He's a Diamondback.

    He was a thrower in Seattle.

    He became a pitcher in Arizona.

    Every aspect of significance is bettered in Arizona.

    Its his choice. Other players have done it that way. Catfish Hunter was one. Tony La Russa, is another. HOF said its ok when
    a player or manger had good stops at more than one team. I think of Maddux as a Brave, Hunter as Yankee and La Russa as a Card.

    It's still bullcrap. At least for players.

    Nobody collects manager cards or wears manager jersey's.

    It's one thing if there's no hat at all, but since there is, you better have your dominant team affiliation.

    I know Wade Boggs made a farce of the hat, but it is sacred and the Braves and Diamondbacks did right by both, paying big money, winning Titles/awards, letting them go/trading to contenders when team slipped, but always treating them as royalty.

    It's goddamn important and shouldn't be brushed off as "I can't decide!" so no logo. The Hall should weigh the stats/success/tenure and make the decision.

    Or do away with hats and just have busts like other Halls.
