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.
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.

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.
