He really does. Why don't they just give one to Larry King and be done with the whole thing? Here's Woody's HOF column from last year.  A few highlights... Woody on why he voted for Goose Gossage: During a visit to Yankee Stadium in the late 1970s, I wanted to talk to Goose but was told he was cruel and gruff to reporters. I sheepishly introduced myself and said I was from Colorado, his home state, and he talked pleasantly for 30 minutes. We've been good friends since. I would vote for him even if he wasn't deserving. And why he voted for Tim Raines and Andre Dawson: Both are borderline. But I was amazed by, and wrote columns about, Dawson and Raines when they played for the Denver Bears.  And Don Mattingly: I like voting for friends. The good news for Sox fans is that he did vote for Jim Rice. Here's an anti-Rice case from Joe Sheehan.
