Personal opinion, but Schilling and Mussina should've gotten in over Smoltz. Not saying Smoltz wasn't deserving, but the other two had better careers.

Pedro Gomez just said the eeason he didn't vote for Piazza was because his numbers aren't HOF worthy indifferent.gif

They need to change the voting system. It's a joke at this point to have these guys voting for dudes like Troy Percival and Darin Erstad as a proper "send off". Pedro Gomez is a straight up clown for what he said in his interview with Michael Kay.

I remember I saw Smoltz Vs Pedro live back when Braves Vs Mets.

I still remember Randy Johnson pitching the perfect game against the Braves.

Anyone know where/time all of them will be in NYC tomorrow I just know they'll be here.

Nat are probably hoping that whatever eye problem Uggla had and got fixed recently was the reason for him struggling big time.

I trust Rizzo, just can't tell what his plan is. 2B market is extremely thin. Only move that would be an upgrade without giving up much right now would be Zobrist, however I wouldn't be surprised if he swings a blockbuster and deals one of Desmond/Zimmermann/Fister.

And the Skins fortunes might be changing with the new GM signing pimp.gif ...but, then again, they are still being run by Dan Snyder.

Read that Grantland article?

i put Smoltz in over them since he was dominant as a starter and closer.

Nah, link? I was just looking at all the numbers today before the induction. Using traditional stats, all three are pretty much identical players. Throw in the new age stats and Mussina & Schilling separate themselves a little bit from Smoltz. I love Smoltz though and enjoy his commentary on MLB Network, he definitely deserves to be in the Hall. Not saying his commentary is a reason he should be in the Hall laugh.gif just enjoy listening to him over Billy Ripken or Tom Verducci.

Had to ask because those exact players were referenced in that article.

John Smoltz is also the first and only pitcher to have Tommy John surgery go into the hall of fame

Looking at some of these percentages got me very upset yesterday.

Hopefully with only Griffey as a guaranteed and Edmonds as a maybe, Raines and Piazza can get in.

But some of these are outrageous. You send Biggio in there but Bagwell can't even get 60%? Frank Thomas walks in because he's a good guy and denounces PED's. Schilling 39? Mussina 24? But Tom Glavine waltzes in because he got to 300 wins. Jesus laugh.gif some of these old ***** and Pedro Gomez just need to die off already.

Solid article. Interesting that they see Smoltz being versatile as a reliever/starter as kind of an insignificant quality:

"The portrayal of Smoltz as a Swiss Army ace relies on shaky logic: Every elite starter has the ability to be a dominant closer, and Smoltz shouldn’t get extra credit for the fragility that temporarily forced his team to use him in a less valuable role. After all, Mussina wouldn’t be a better candidate if he’d taken a sabbatical from starting to pitch out of the bullpen for Baltimore."

So basically Schilling is in the same boat as Clemens? Great pitcher but was on juice and will never get in.

When was Schilling ever associated with PED's? He's just like Frank Thomas, he's been speaking out against it for as long as I can remember. The only controversy I recall was him saying Boston management recommended him taking them to recover from an injury in 08.

If Jack Morris could get voted in on the narrative on one goddamn post season start, Schilling should be able to dance in for possibly the greatest post season ever pitching wise.
