The Hall of Fame Unemployment Line

From time to time a story, column, news article, etc. jumps out at me and I MUST read it. Recently Jack Curry wrote something that falls into that category. Here it is!

"In previous years, they were among the best players in baseball. In future years, they will probably stroll into the Hall of Fame. But this year, because of injuries, ineffectiveness or indifference toward them, they are unemployed.

In about three weeks, pitchers and catchers will have their first workouts at 30 spring training camps. By then, perhaps
Pedro Martínez, Ken Griffey Jr., Frank Thomas, Iván Rodríguez and Tom Glavine will have jobs.
Or maybe they will still be searching for a place to play."

Read the rest of Jack’s column over at NYTimes.com.
