    Congratulations for Biggio although I was more excited by the induction of Atlanta Brave John Smoltz, who joins Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux (along with their manager Bobby Cox) who were voted in last year and comprised one of baseball's greatest pitching lineups.

        Good for him. It's an utter travesty that Jeff Bagwell hasn't gotten in yet, though. He's only the most prolific-hitting first baseman of the last century.

          I'm thinking Biggio paved the way -- and Biggio is quick to point out that he (Biggio) is who he is because of Jeff!!! A real class act!
