Pat Gillick is now a Hall-of-Famer

The once-again-newly-revamped Veterans Committee has elected former executive ("Stand") Pat Gillick to Baseball's Hall of Fame. He was the only one of the 12 finalists under consideration to make it this year. Former Players Union chief Marvin Miller missed by 1 vote, and nobody else came particularly close. Gillick will be joined by whichever players are elected in the normal vote in January. (This should finally be Bert Blyleven's time to make it!)
