Well-written piece by Joe Sheehan taking to task all the people complaining that the Veterans Committee didn't elect anyone to the Hall. I think we're better off having a Veterans Committee that lets in too few people than too many (which used to be a problem), and Sheehan's right that if a player from the modern era has already been rejected 15 times by the writers, then there's limited utility in giving them more chances. So, kudos to the Veterans Committee for keeping the standards high, but maybe it's time to disband altogether.
