If Pedro Retired Today?

Postby thedude » Sat Sep 30, 2006 6:13 pm

Pedro is having rotator cuff surgury, he is turning 35, and has numerous other injuries over the last several seasons. He claims he is not going to retire, but he may never be a staff ace again.


So, do you think he deserves election into Cooperstown, if he never pitches again?

In my opion, he is without a doubt a first ballot hofer. However the counting stats are iffy, which might make the writers hold him out until the second ballot...

Pedro had one of the most dominant runs in all of baseball history especially when you consider the age he pitched in and his stats vs the league average.

First ballot hall of fame easily.

Definitely no later than 2nd ballot, and probably the 1st.

Seems like we're pretty much in agreementl; Pedro is definitely a HOF pitcher.
