There was never a better Hall of Fame induction speech than Rizzuto's. Other people may have earned it more, but nobody appreciated it as much. My mother and my grandfather tried to make me a Yankees fan. Rizzuto made me a Yankees fan. Reward TV -- TV just got better! Ars Gratia Pecuniae.
Not to mention, JayJay, that they got hosed on the Jay Witasick trade. The Pads got him for a warm bucket of spit, built him up, got the Yankees to trade Jimenez for Witasick, and as soon as he arrived in NYC, he returned to his sucky ways.
