... Just Two Guys Who Don't Need Directions to Cooperstown

Shaughnessy: Snubbed Rice Wouldn't Downplay Hall

"Today's news had to hurt, but Jim Ed has been typically stoic through these years of rejection. He hasn't cried about racism or favoritism (he'd probably already be in Cooperstown if he'd had the disposition of Kirby Puckett or Gary Carter), but he knows he was a better hitter than former teammates Perez and Wade Boggs and he suffers in silence while inching excruciatingly close to election.

"But he's not going to insult our intelligence by telling us he doesn't give a 'rat's ass' about Cooperstown." -- 1.8.08, Dan Shaughnessy, Boston Globe
