The last starting pitcher to retire with fewer than 63 career WAR and make the Hall of Fame was Catfish Hunter (32.5), a Tiant contemporary (and a pitcher Tiant was significantly better than), but Hunter is the exception, not the rule -- every other Hall of Fame SP to retire since 1975 had at least 63 WAR The brother of Hall of Fame catcher Rick Ferrell, Wes was a workhorse pitcher mostly for the Indians and Red Sox before World War II. Ferrell pitched 85 complete games over a three-year span in. Vizquel provided excellent defense and durability, and he is the only non-Hall of Fame shortstop besides Alex Rodriguez (not eligible until 2022) with at least 2,500 hits.

But he only earned 216 career wins which is well below the 300-win benchmark for Hall of Fame pitchers. This is not much to knock him on, as wins are not a legitimate pitching statistic.

3,000 strikeout club. Nolan Ryan is Major League Baseball's all-time strikeout leader at 5,714. In Major League Baseball (MLB), the 3,000 strikeout club is the group of pitchers who have struck out 3,000 or more batters in their careers. Walter Johnson was the first to reach 3,000, doing so in 1923, and was the only pitcher at this milestone.

Every eligible member of the 3,000 Strikeout Club is in the Hall except for Clemens and Curt Schilling, who has been kept out largely for non-baseball reasons. All 20 members of the 50 Shutout Club are in the Hall Mullane's stats are good but not great, and there are several other 19th century pitchers in the Hall of Fame already - it's not clear that more are worthy.

In JAWS, Scherzer is 59th among starting pitchers. He's decently below the average Hall of Fame pitcher, though that is skewed by the heavy workloads of pitchers from pre-1930. He sits above Hall. Except for Roger Clemens, widely suspected of steroids abuse, John has more wins than any pitcher not in the Hall of Fame. 5. Dave Parker - Like Evans, he was a slugging rightfielder known for. The use of pitchers has changed gradually over time so the starters get fewer starts (from three-man rotations to five-man rotations) and fewer innings (pitch counts and closers). The 300-win pitcher is becoming extinct so a new metric will need to be established. For now, a Hall-of-Fame pitcher is like the Supreme Court definititon of obscenity
Not bad, he is in the top half and I wish I could say I was one of the top 100 pitchers of all time. However, it is not hall of fame or Gallery of Renown quality. Catfish Hunter has 540 points according to my formula. The cutoff point for the Hall of Fame I came up with is 580 points. Right now, there are 62 pitchers above the cutoff line Hall of Fame 300 win Pitchers Baseball. Hall of Fame 300 pitchers.

Babe Ruth is 150-0. There are 151 Hall of Famers in the study; Ruth was better than the other 150—thus, 150 wins, and there are no players in the study who were better than Ruth and are not in the Hall of Fame, thus zero losses. Ty Cobb is 149-0, Willie Mays is 148-0, Hank Aaron is 147-0, Honus Wagner is 146-0 Brian Bahr /Allsport. A five-time All-Star who finished in the top 10 of NL MVP voting three times between 2000 and 2004, Helton's status as a non-Hall of Famer is beginning to look like a.

Back to the discussion about starters: It won't get any easier. Fellow future active Hall of Fame candidates such as Zack Greinke (208 wins, 16 complete games, 67.1 WAR), Clayton Kershaw (175 wins, 25 complete games, 67 WAR) and Max Scherzer (175 wins, 11 complete games, 60.6 WAR) are in a lesser position to get in than Verlander Two hundred and seventy is not 300, but even so, Mussina ranks 33rd all-time in wins, tied with Hall of Famer Burleigh Grimes and above Jim Palmer (268), Bob Feller (266), Bob Gibson (251) and 31. Jack Morris should not be in the Hall of Fame. Long time Tigers pitcher Jack Morris was on the Hall of Fame ballot for 15 years but never quite got the necessary 75 percent support to earn.
He won 288 games, falling just short of the 300-win plateau that resulted in automatic selection for some lesser pitchers. He has the most wins of any pitcher who didn't reach 300 (and thus, every eligible pitcher with more wins is in the Hall of Fame). Twelve wins short, a number John easily would have reached if he had pitched in 1975 Curt Schilling's failure to gain admission to Baseball's Hall of Fame this week has brought calls to modify the election process. It's not the process that's broken. It's that the candidates have issues. Schilling received 71.1 percent of the vote. To become a Hall of Famer, players need 75 percent of the vote of 10-year [
The 300 win benchmark pushed Glavine into the Hall of Fame, although, in this era, the concept of Hall of Fame benchmarks is now obsolete. You can point to homerun kings like Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa as proof that benchmarks are meaningless nowadays, but a better representation of this concept is Craig Biggio Jim McCormick is one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history. Yet history has forgotten McCormick because he pitched for some of the worst teams in Major League history, which caused him to fall short of the 300 Win milestone that ushered his contemporaries into the Hall of Fame. McCormick is 4th all-time in ERA (4,000 IP), 8th all-time in WHIP (4,000 IP), 11th all-time in Complete Games, 2

The 300 win plateau is a benchmark we often use, but it was never meant to be a hard and fast rule. At first glance, none of these guys appear to be worthy of a place in Cooperstown, but sometimes the other numbers/tests we go through reveal something else. Maybe Oliva and Colavito have something to offer that their index scores aren't revealing Tim Wakefield May Not Be Hall of Fame Worthy, But His Knuckleball Is January 25, 2017, by Luis Medina Baseball Is Fun One week ago today, Tim Raines, Jeff Bagwell, and Ivan Rodriguez collected a combined 1,097 votes en route to the Hall of Fame Pro Football Reference has a Hall of Fame Monitor score at 97.4 — only four below the average Hall of Fame QB at 101.

My Hall of Fame voteif I had one. Greg Maddux - Probably the last pitcher we will ever see with 300 wins. Mike Mussina - You know you're good when you're a Yankee and I like you. Tom Glavine - Another 300 win pitcher. Curt Schilling - Low win total, but great postseason record and amazing K/BB ratio. Jeff Bagwell - 149 OPS+ is. He averaged 0.869 hits per inning while Hall of Fame peers Dennis Eckersley (1.267), Don Sutton (0.950), Goose Gossage (0.943) and Phil Niekro (1.050) were all far and away more hittable pitchers that season.

CC Sabathia rounds out the 100+ Hall Rating hurlers. Are any of these pitchers going to get into the Hall of Fame? Rivera will stroll in without a problem. But I don't think anyone else stands a chance. When Bert Blyleven was inducted in 2011, he was the first starting pitcher to be inducted since Nolan Ryan in 1999
Phil Niekro, a pitcher who used his signature knuckleball to fool generations of hitters and craft a Hall of Fame career, died Saturday night in his sleep, the Braves announced Sunday. He was 81 He spent 21 seasons with the Braves and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1997. In 24 total seasons, Niekro went 318-274 with a 3.35 ERA, 3,342 strikeouts and 245 complete games in. In the last century, no pitcher threw more than Phil's 5,404 innings. His knuckleball led him to five All-Star selections, three 20 win seasons for the Atlanta Braves, the 300-win club and. Tom Seaver, Hall of Fame pitcher, dies at 75. Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver, who led the New York Mets to an improbable World Series victory in 1969, has died at age 75. The Baseball Hall of Fame announced that Seaver died Monday from complications of Lewy body dementia and COVID-19 If you look a little higher on the list you get Jim Palmer: 3.33. The examples continue when you ascend up the list to more and more dominant Hall of Fame pitchers: Tom Glavine: 4.58, Nolan Ryan: 4.13, Pedro Martinez: 3.63, Randy Johnson: 3.22, Roger Clemens: 3.13. Of course this isn't a perfect comparison
JAWS rates Blyleven as the best eligible pitcher not in the Hall of Fame, (.534), his 250 losses, the sub-300 win total, and his failure to garner a Cy Young Award or reach 20 wins more than once-all of those related to the level of support he received from his teammates (not to mention unenlightened voters).. Let's ignore steroids for a minute and look at the 15 best players not to be in the baseball Hall of Fame. This time of year always comes with a lot of scrutiny when the Hall of Fame is announced
Surely the least talented and accomplished pitcher in the Hall of Fame. Haines had the fortune of playing with Frisch for 11 years and playing under him for five. That association helped grease the wheels for Jesse's election to the HOF in 1970 by the Vet Committee. This despite the fact that the right-hander pitched 19 years in the National. Still, Clemens built his Hall of Fame credentials before any wrongdoing took place. All told, Clemens retired with a 3.12 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP, 4,672 strikeouts, and a record seven Cy Young Awards.

H/9: 7.775; Vote Percentage Received for the Hall of Fame: 2009: 3.9; Should be Inducted As A: New York Yanke (A substantially different list. The problem was that I was/am using an old, old file to calculate the lists. The file had marked guys like Murphy and Mattingly as not yet eligible for the Hall of Fame, and had thus unintentionally excluded them from the list.) 1990s. 1. Barry Bonds, of. 2. Roger Clemens, p. 3. Rafael Palmeiro, 1b. 4
While there's not a smoking gun to prove it, the numbers suggest that there must be multiple players in the Hall of Fame who failed that 2003 drug test. Yet the voters (writers) have decided that you have no place in Cooperstown if your name is affiliated with steroids. Let me remind you, 104 players tested positive in 2003 As for Schilling's public heel turn, lets just say I will not listen to his Hall of Fame acceptance speech, and I kind of hate that my vote will help eventually give him that stage. But what he did on the field—with his 3,116 strikeouts and 79.9 WAR leading his resume—undeniably earned a spot in Cooperstown
With the long-magical 300-win barrier no longer in play, what we've seen is that starting pitchers have generally been ignored. Or, to put that another way, only two pitchers born in the past 50 years have been inducted , and one, Pedro Martínez, has a credible claim to make toward being the best pitcher of all time Twenty-three of the 24 pitchers (sans Clemens) with 300 wins or more are all in the Hall. That standard, in the past, eliminated such now seemingly clear Hall of Famers as Tommy John (288) and Jim. By the way, the average win total for the 74 Hall of Fame pitchers is 253. Mussina beats that number by 17. Another argument we hear is that Mussina's 3.68 ERA was high compared to those. Clemens has a Hall of Fame resume that rivals Bonds, but like Bonds, alleged PED use hampers his chances of gaining entry into the Hall of Fame. With 354 career wins, Clemens is the only member of the 300 win club not in the Hall of Fame TV Show/Movie Appeared: Bull Durham (1988) Actor/Actress: Tim Robbins Position Portrayed: Pitcher Played For:: Durham Bulls Why you should vote:: He made it to the show! Why you should not vote:: Seriously, Robbins may be tall and lanky like many Major League Pitchers, but he wasn't Charlie Sheen on the mound. Tim Robbins may have looked more awkward trying to act like an athlete than anyone.
That's not Hall of Fame vs Hall of Stats, that's small group of insiders in an opaque process, vs the baseball universe in a transparent and thoroughly-debated process. If the Veterans Committee sticks to 19th century candidates, as well as executives, managers and umpires, it's going to help the Hall rather than create controversy Does 265 Wins kill McCormick's Hall chances? It shouldn't. Of the 66 Hall of Fame starting pitchers, 43 did not achieve 300 Wins. For comparative analysis, I have set aside 66 pitchers who have been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame for their body of work as starting pitchers Mike Mussina, who retired after 18 seasons with a 270-153 record and a 3.68 earned run average, should someday be remembered as a Hall of Fame pitcher As the saying goes good pitching beats good hitting, which is why there is nothing more unbeatable in sports then a pitcher that is locked in and dealing. There have been plenty of great pitchers in the history of the MLB. In fact there are over 70 pitchers that have been elected to baseball's Hall of Fame in Cooperstown
