Sorry, Cub fans.
Dawson texted that other paper in town last night, "Hall will issue a press release [Wednesday] announcing that I will go in as an Expo."
Guess that's that.
The Hawk spent the first 11 years of his career in Canada, where he won a Rookie of the Year award and hit 225 of his 438 career home runs.
But, it was here in Chicago where Dawson really became popular on the broader scale, fueled by his MVP season in 1987. He made the All-Star team in five of his six seasons while with the Cubs.
This news really only confirms what we already had been hearing.
At the end of the day it's hard to argue with the choice anyway.
It's time like these those super gawdy half-and-half hats would come in handy.
