When Maddux goes into the HOF, will it be as a...

When Greg Maddux enters the Hall of Fame, certainly on the first ballot that he is eligible, will it be as a Cub, Brave, or Dodger? I know that the player gets to decide. Who do you think he will pick?

It almost certainly has to be as a Cub or Brave. I'd be interested to see what you all think Maddux might be thinking...

It should most definitely be as a Brave. All of his best seasons were w/ the Braves, not any of those other teams.

I thought that the players can no longer choose:

No chance in hell he goes in as anything but a Brave. That's where he spent the bulk of his career and won a World Series title.

players dont choose although they occasionally state their preference which the hall considers.

most definitely a brave. thats the where he spent the bulk of his good years. in atlanta he was famous for pitching well. in chicago he was famous for leaving.

Not even a question here...He will go in as a Brave where he made his name and biggest impression unless he goes on to picth for the Dodgers for another 15 seasons and wins 300+ games there.

I figured Braves, too, but I know he liked the idea of starting and ending his career as a Cub. That made me think maybe he would lean that way. Perhaps it's not his choice anymore.
