Default Tony Mullane HOF..forget pettite and others

why isnt this guy in the HOF

283 wins

this is who baseball references compares him to (almost all in the HOF)

Burleigh Grimes (908.1) *
Mickey Welch (901.9) *
Red Ruffing (897.4) *
Red Faber (884.2) *
Gus Weyhing (878.0)
Vic Willis (866.7) *
Tommy John (864.0)
Fergie Jenkins (858.8) *
Jim McCormick (852.8)
Early Wynn (852.5) *

A switch pitcher no less.

He through 567 innings in one season. Try and take him out of a ball game. You only needed 2 of these guys to make up your whole rotation

Plus he was entertaining 343 wild pitches..

Plus he played 1b/2nd/3b/SS and OF as well. He won 30 or more games 5 times..

That puts him smack in the middle of borderline hall of famers (six of the comps are in and four are not) so it's no big surprise that he's on the outside looking in. I have no opinion on whether he should be in or not but I will say that had he not been suspended for an entire season he would almost certainly have won over 300 games and would have been enshrined decades ago. To me that points to the nonsense of "automatic" enshrinement for hitting certain numbers.

I'd rank Bobby Matthews higher than Tony Mullane on the list, and Matthews also comes up (arguably) short. Take a look at his record.

Successful BST deals with Leon, veloce, shammus, lharris3600, jimivintage, sb1, seablaster.

Current Wantlist:
1909 Obak Howard (Los Angeles) (no frame on back)
Obak Vernon Tigers - all years
