The 2018 MLB Winter Meetings are happening, and there are rumors about deals and free agent signings everywhere. Beneath all that buzz, the Hall Of Fame vote lurks. On January 22, 2019, the 2019 Baseball Hall Of Fame class announcement occurs. Curt Schilling will not be matriculating. Schilling is the equal of John Smoltz. Smoltz sailed in on his first chance in 2015, while Schilling is still waiting. Why is that?
The air attack for the Patriots has looked more and more like last year each week. When Brady was MVP, I have the numbers to back it up.

Rob Manfred is about to get a contract extension to remain The Commissioner of Major League Baseball for another 5 years. That is outstanding news for all baseball fans, because Mr. Manfred is a man on a mission to save our beautiful game.
