Hall of Really Good #10: Buck O'Neil Hall of Really Good #10: Buck O'Neil

We here at the Hall of Really Good understand that the game of baseball is about more than dingers and sick K’s. It’s about class, something that I’m afraid the other Hall of Celebrity Ballfolk must have forgotten about a long time ago.

Hall of Really Good #9: Manny Ramirez Hall of Really Good #9: Manny Ramirez

Manny Ramirez. Manram. Manny being Manny. There’s no way around it, the guy was a legendary hitter. He’s known for a lot of things today. A 17 year career. His goofy persona. Less than stellar glove work. Sure, there was the PED thing, but let’s face it, the man was a hitting savant. Too good for the reputation he’s…

Hall of Really Good #7: Will Clark Hall of Really Good #7: Will Clark

That’s Rafael Palmeiro talking about his old college teammate, the Thriller. You don’t have to dig very deep to discover that Will Clark was a massive asshole.

Keith Hernandez deserves to be remembered. You will often hear this name bandied about for consideration to some other hall. Does he belong with the immortals or was he not quite good enough.

Hall of Really Good #4: Jack Morris Hall of Really Good #4: Jack Morris

The story of Jack Morris is one of grit and perseverance. Seen today as the grizzled veteran, one doesn’t think of flash or his being the best pitcher of his era, but of steel nerves and the ability to rise in the most crucial of moments. Should he be immortalized forever. Remember, this is the Hall of Really Good,…

Aw yeah. Now we’re talking. Boosh.

Hall of Really Good #2: Peter Rose Hall of Really Good #2: Peter Rose

Baseball has a long history. Entire careers of journeyman players will inevitably get lost in the fog of time. And even if you’ve got your eye out, every now and then you’ll stumble upon a career that seems so otherworldly, you can’t understand why that other, more pretentious Hall of note hasn’t recognized obvious…
