A caution one lap after a restart put him back on the lead lap thanks to the 'free pass'. FULL STORY

However, 2014 looked to be another matter altogether and with Wednesday’s announcement of Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas as the newest inductions into Cooperstown that fear became a reality.

Edmonton - Dec. 27, 2013: The fact we are now into year number seven of the Tim Raines Hall of Fame watch is more than a little disappointing. Anyone who watched him play throughout his 23 year career, knows exactly just how good and dominant a ball player he was, Had Raines played for any other team than the Montreal Expos during his first ten years in the big leagues, this would all be a moot point...as he would have been enshrined in Cooperstown long ago.
