ESPN's Current HOFers--Pedro 21!!

Postby Transmogrifier » Sat Jul 30, 2005 11:07 pm

Pedro is behind Arod, behind Pujols, behind even Cabrera!!

And the guy's argument for putting him at 21 is that he doesn't have enough wins.

I'm sorry, Pedro would have to kill his mother to not make the Hall of Fame at this point. He could retire now, and he'd make it, simply on the strength of seven of the best pitched years in the history of the game.

Who is with me?
1-20
20-40

I didn't see a thread on this... just the SI one. Let me know if I'm wrong.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

If he retired now, there is no way he'd make the HOF. However, with a few more good seasons, he'll be in.

I've always preferred superb peak performances over longevity, which is clearly something the HOF doesn't exactly agree with (e.g. Biggio). Under my idea, Pedro, who was the most dominating pitcher in the game for quite a few years, certainly deserves a spot in the HOF.

Having Miguel Cabrera on this list proves that this article is not even worth worrying about

with all due respect, pujols and mcab arent in the hall yet. none of us think it will happen, but they both could fall off the map and the wouldnt make it. pedro was THE most unhittable pitcher for quite a long stretch. i still remember that all-star game where he had 4 straight k's similar to what carl hubbel did. this guys baa is just phenomenal. the lack of wins can be attributed to the places he played, la and mon, before the sox. the only good team he was on was the strike year. pedro will be a 1st ballot hof.

He and Randy Johnson have been the most dominant pitchers of the past decade. He's in. It's not just about cumulative stats, just ask Sandy Koufax.

agreed. if you can think the 1990's and baseball without thinking of pedro, you should be forced to give john kruk sponge baths for the next 15 years.
