NL West Notes: Dodgers Owners, Lincecum, Rockies

Jackie Robinson and Willie Mays were both elected into the Hall Of Fame on this day in 1962 and 1979, respectively.  As you might expect, both legends went to Cooperstown in their first year of eligibility.  Mays received 409 of 432 votes; at the time, only inaugural inductees Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth and Honus Wagner had received a higher percentage of the vote.

While we ponder how in the world anyone could leave Mays, Robinson or any of the original HOF class off a ballot, here are some items from around the NL West…

  1. I bid on the Dodgers. I’m still waiting to hear back.

    Edit – 12:27am CPT: I was just informed that I was outbid by what MLB called, a significant sum.

  2. Robinson and Mays were elected, not inducted.

    Jay-Z would have been in on the bidding but the league wouldn’t allow him to move the team to NY and rename them the Brooklyn Dodgers. Man Hov is crazy.

    • Baltimore and Washington are splitting a total of 7.68M people after MLB moved them there.  NY has 21.2M people.  There probably should be a 3rd franchise there.

    As of right now yes the Rockies won the Marco Scutaro trade but if the Red Sox sign Oswalt I’d say they won the trade, they get Ross & Oswalt & get rid of Scutaro’s 6M?

    Hopefully there’s a way of banning his IP and not just a screen name.
