I actually think Maddux has a good shot at it.

A first ballot HOF, no doubt. I hope he enjoys retirement.

+1 to what this guy said. Love having a White Sox fan around.

Kornheiser said today that the first thing that pops to mind with RJ is the pushing the photog in NY incident. That's pretty lame. I will always remember the bird :-B That and the all the strikeouts.

he retired as a Giant and won his 300th game as a Giant so he'll go into the HOF as a Giant right?

I'm not sure what cap he'll wear. He did win a WS and pitch for 8 years in ARZ, but he pitched for 10 years in SEA and that's where he became a household name.

It's debatable but I think it's definitely going to be Arizona. He went to just as many all star games there as in Seattle but won 3 more Cy Youngs and won a World Series there, have to think that's how the writers will see it.
