In case you need something to keep your mind occupied prior to today’s football games.
Historically, there are about 35 players active at any given time who go on to become Hall of Famers.
On the eve of the official announcement of the Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2011, I thought I’d share my votes here, as well as explain my justifications for each.
What we do here is anonymously present the top candidates for the Cy Young award from a prior year, and ask you to tell us who you’d vote for.
It was a daunting task, but I managed to narrow my list of the greatest baseball players not in the Hall of Fame down to 50.
Through discussion here on the Pine, help me decide on my top 50. Share your top 5, top 10, top 20 or just a few names that you think are glaring omissions.
In the spirit of “Blind Resume,” and at least partly inspired by what I like to call the evolution of Cy Young voters, we introduce the first installment of “Cy Young Hindsight.”
How could I suggest such a thing? My complaint is not that Halladay’s season was undeserving of the award. Rather, it’s with the way in which he won it.
Even if I can’t make claim to being a great pitcher, you have to give me at least a little credit for being in the top ten among active pitchers in four cumulative statistical categories.
If I had a bit of a chip on my shoulder, it would have been understandable. First of all, weighing in at 160 lbs, I was always one of the smallest players in the game. Making matters worse, if you were to google my name, the first result you would get is a female actress.
