    Gracie isn't in the HOF, nor should he be.

Mickey Mantle was a womanizer and drank too much, as was others. Schilling isn't liked because he's a boisterous Conservative and plans to run as a State Senator in Liberal Massachusetts.

    Schilling isn't liked because he's a racist piece of ****. That's not a liberal vs. conservative issue, that's an issue of just being a bad person. I'd say the HOF character clause can be invoked for racism, and this is coming from a guy who WAS one of the biggest Schilling fans and collectors around.
