Re: 5tps "potential hall of famer" thread. Today's HOF candidate: Mike Mussina
Also Mussina has won just over half his career starts the mark of an excellent pitcher...he really is a slightly lessor pitcher than Greg Maddux, pitching his entire career in the AL East ...had Moose pitched in the NL who knows.
He is known for never winning 20 and never winning a ring in NY, he would have easily won 20 games in 1994 and 1995 had the strikes not occured.
Winning 19 in 95 in 144 game season
Winning 16 in 1994 in a little over 2/3 mark of season.
Yeah, but can't you say that about anyone? Roger Clemens isn't (going to get) in and neither is Pete Rose.
Its not fair to Moose to say that if so and so isn't in, than neither should he be. You go on the player's merits too. Its not Moose's fault that Bert "be home" Blyleven is not in the HOF so why should Moose be punished?
