Could 2017 be the year Tim Raines goes into Cooperstown?

Jan. 8, 2014: When it comes to Tim Raines and the Baseball Hall of Fame, the last 7 years have been very interesting to watch unfold. After debuting on the ballot in 2008 with just 24.3% of the vote, the Montreal Expos legend managed to work his way up to 52.2% in 2013. However, 2014 looked to be another matter altogether and with Wednesday’s announcement of Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas as the newest inductions into Cooperstown that fear became a reality.

MLB: Raines awaits his call from the Hall

Dec. 27, 2013: The fact we are now into year number seven of the Tim Raines Hall of Fame watch is more than a little disappointing. Anyone who watched him play throughout his 23 year career, knows exactly just how good and dominant a ball player he was, Had Raines played for any other team than the Montreal Expos during his first ten years in the big leagues, this would all be a moot point...as he would have been enshrined in Cooperstown long ago.

Sep. 11, 2013: With his eighth French Open and second US Open crowns added to the books, Rafa Nadal now sits with 13 career Grand Slam titles, just one shy of Pete Sampras and only four back of Roger Federer. For so many years, Federer was looked upon as being the greatest player of all-time but after the year Rafa has just put together, that is simply no longer the case FULL STORY

Champions League: United collapse, as Madrid and Ronaldo advance

Mar. 5, 2013: Through fifty-five minutes of play, Manchester United had employed their game plan to perfection against Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League matchup.

BBWAA set the bar but ultimately hurt Bagwell and Raines

Jan. 9, 2013: The BBWAA spoke loud and clear on Wednesday afternoon, electing no one to the Baseball Hall of Fame for the first time since 1996. While many view this as a message sent to the like of Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, it ultimately did more to harm the chances of Tim Raines and Jeff Bagwell to get into the Hall of Fame.
