Which is why I dislike the HOF process.
Sport Writers, some of which are incredible arses, having the power to keep people in or out.

There would be no need to ever remove him.
The "hard to take them off" thing is the rationale for not filling up the 60 man roster right now. Just putting the guys on who have a shot at the Opening Day roster. Let those guys work out and prepare for the season.
Once the season starts and 30 of them are no longer practicing at [Bowie or wherever] as they are on the major league team, then you can add a bunch of guys. Probably won't fill the full 60 to allow wiggle room. But certainly go to 57 or 58. And there's absolutely no reason Mountcastle wouldn't be part of that second wave of people added to the roster.
