In response to Softlaw1's comment:
Smoltz, Glavine and Maddux are first-ballot hall of famers
Smoltz has no business whatsoever in the HOF.
Glavine should get in, but should not be allowed on the first class.
Maddux is a first ballot HOF'er, without a doubt.
Schilling should get in about the last time he can stay on the ballot. His 3 titles and 2 superlative post-season WS runs should get him in over these quantity 300 wins and not much else carps.
Agreed on all counts.
You agree on "not much else carps"?
I'm surpried at you, drew.
I dont know what a carp is (other than a lousy fish). But I disagree when non-dominant players get in because they stuck around long enough to achieve milestones. I figured he was being hyperbolic when he said 300 wins, because the only two pitchers who have 300 wins, arent already in, and werent mentioned in his post are Clemens and Randy Johnson.
So by 300 wins, I think he really meant 250 wins. And i believe that there are many 250 win pitchers who dont deserve to get in. Jack Morris being one.
