In one of the most disgraceful turns of events in the history of American professional sport, former Phillies pitcher Terry Mulholland was denied rightful entry into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, collecting zero votes from the frauds in the Baseball Writers Association of America. This year's sole inductee is Reds shortstop Barry Larkin, who must have bribed a million writers.

Mulholland was the author of one of the greatest moments in Phillies history, a 1990 no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants. He was just a Charlie Hayes error away from a Perfect Game. I bet Hayes feels badly now, knowing that he probably cost his teammate a chance at glory in Cooperstown.

Mulholland was also a member of the superbly adequate 1993 National League Champion Phillies starting rotation, and possessed probably the greatest pick-off move in the history of the Universe. Try stealing on him, Mr. Larkin. What's that? You can't? HA!
