    How do you vote for Andruw Jones and Scott Rolen over Todd Helton is beyond me.

    Gritty reboot of the hit blimpcityhero series. Prestigious

    I saw this and couldn't believe it. This is such a good deal for the Tribe.

    so many baseball writers vote with biased opinions as well, i can't believe this is still how HOF gets determined

    I genuinely don't think Curt is a hall of famer, even forgetting for a second that he's a bigoted fucking racist.

    wait what he definitely had a HOF career

    but i'd love if the bigotry kept him out and he doesn't get in for like 50 years

    yeah schilling's numbers are absolutely HOF worthy, over 3k SOs, 3.46 career era, 1.14 WHIP

    but still fuck him

    Roger Clemens career line -

    354 Wins
    3.12 career ERA
    4,672 SOs
    1.17 WHIP

    and he will probably never get in.

    walkin along in the mission in the rain Prestigious

    its very funny that curt schilling tried to have a videogame named after and failed so hard that he now owes the state of RI like tens of millions of dollars

    The first 9 years of his career range from bad to meh. Looking through his year by year, he only has 4-5 years where he's really good. Never won a Cy Young, was hardly ever even the best pitcher on his team. Idk, he just doesn't do it for me. 2004 was incredible, but i'm a meh on him.

    I legit teared up driving home from work yesterday after the Goldy news broke. I cannot wait for the season to start. Gotta love the Red Birds!

    music and baseball.

    His first season as a starter he put up 4+ WAR and was really good ever since. What are you basing this on? Curious.

    How did Travis Hafner con his way onto the Hall of Fame ballot?

    Okay sorry, I was looking at Baseball Reference and was counting his first years as a reliever.

    I think all your have to do is play for 10+ years.

    yeah i think anyone who played 10 years and has been retired for 5 years and been cleared by a committee who i imagine will pretty much let anyone who fits the first two criteria on, because, travis hafner is on it and so is jason bay lol

    My Ballot If I Had A Vote:
    Mariana Rivera
    Roy Halladay
    Edgar Martinez
    Roger Clemens
    Barry Bonds
    Lance Berkman
    Derek Lowe
    Ted Lilly
    Kevin Youkilis

    Last three would be to give them a vote or two before they get knocked off the ballot.

    remember that year he hit a million grand slams

    Don't get me wrong, he had a great four-year stretch...but that was literally it. It's a shame, he could have had a hall of fame career had he been able to stay healthy.

    i'd like to go on the record as being extremely in favor of grand slams
