Baseball Question Stumps Jeopardy! Contestants

Tired of hearing about the Hall of Fame yet?  Turns out you can't even watch "Jeopardy!" without being slapped in the face with some Cooperstown chatter.

Three recent contestants on the popular game show displayed their utter lack of baseball knowledge when given the following from host Alex Trebek:  "354 wins did not overcome the controversy as this ex-Red Sox pitcher didn't make the Hall of Fame cut in 2013."

The trio's responses were, um, interesting.

No word yet as to whether or not Gudrun, Stacy and Sarah have been asked to join the BBWAA.

Shawn Anderson is that guy who, instead of sitting there talking about the game going on around him, is talking wise about the history of baseball. He believes baseball figures such as Tommy John, Harold Baines, Ron Guidry and Billy Martin deserve their own plaque somewhere if not in Cooperstown. You can follow him on Twitter at @HOVG.
