Baseball Hall of Fame inductees announced
The next inductees to the Baseball Hall of Fame will be announced at 2 p.m. ET. Greg Maddux, the greatest pitcher of his generation, will easily earn election to the Hall, and perhaps break Tom Seaver's record of 98.6%. He will be joined by longtime teammate Tom Glavine and slugger Frank Thomas. Houston Astros second baseman Craig Biggio could make it a sweet quartet. But their elections won't bring clarity to the performing-enhancing-drug debate, or even civility among fans and media — traditional and emerging — who have rightfully scrutinized the process.
