BBWAA must speed up its voting requirements
January, 14, 2009
Today on XM Radio, Hal Bodley had some interesting (and surprising) things to say about the BBWAA:
Hal Bodley from MLB.com with Charley Steiner says he can't vote for post season BBWAA awards since he's no longer with a newspaper. Notes many newspapers are laying off writers if not going bankrupt, and it's time for the BBWAA to recognize more internet writers (not just the few they recently have). This being unlikely, Hal has an idea. He suggests the Hall of Fame vote be the first arm of the BBWAA to make the move to include a large number of internet writers.
