Sometimes we build the Hall of Fame into this mythical, pearly-gated place, when all judgement day really consists of is a bunch of writers looking at names on a ballot and ticking off the ones that they like. The quality of IBHOF is limited by the knowledge and personal bias of the voters.
Gatti being inducted before (eg) Curry is both ridiculous and perfectly understandable, depending on how you look at it.
