Which current players will make the Hall of Fame? And how about Trevor Hoffman?

It’s the time of year when we start getting all of those lists about the cultural crap that underscore just how painfully young today’s incoming college freshman are. Things like “2015 incoming freshman never played stickball. Or persecuted the Irish. They are bioluminescent and are primarily silicon-based lifeforms; for this year’s incoming freshmen, ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ is just as far in their past as Puccini’s ‘E Lucevan Le Stelle’ is in ours.”

I hate those friggin’ lists. So excuse me while I turn away from the here and now talk about the past and future. Specifically, of the Hall of Fame.

Now, back to feeling old. Did you know that This year’s incoming Freshman have never eaten a sandwich? That the Boer War is totally foreign to them? That they don’t know a world without draculas? It’s true!
