It's a good thing we don't already have any cheaters who bragged about getting away with their cheating in the Hall of Fame. Whew!Yeah, it's a good thing we don't have any verbally abusive racist assholes in the Hall of Fame. Whew!
Gaylord Perry is one cheater who bragged about his cheating, wrote a damn book about how he got away with cheating and profited by it, and still got into the Hall. There are plenty of others in there who kept quiet about it, but who many people assume were blatant cheaters, like Whitey Ford.
If you holler against cheaters in the Hall then you should have been hollering just as loudly when they went in, and you should be utterly disgusted by their induction.
Either you are against cheaters in the Hall or you're not.
If you start trying to split hairs about some types of cheating being okay but other kinds are an immoral disgrace, then you lose that ground to stand on and are just making noise.
