When the BWAA turns in their ballots for the Hall of Fame in early January, Jim Rice should be on the required 75 percent for enshrinement. He was baseball’s most feared slugger from 1975-1986, and in my opinion had six HOF seasons: 1977. 1978, 1979, 1983, 1984, and 1986. In today’s Sterioid Era, his accomplishments look better and better.
