Default Happy 50th Birthday to a Future Hall-of-Famer:

Mike Mussina could get in as early next month.



Garnered 63.5 % last year....Edgar Martinez was the only candidate who received more without being elected.

5-Time All-Star; 7-Time Gold Glove

270W- 153L .638 WPCT

2,813K ; 3.58 K/W ratio

WAR - 83.0 which would rank 29th out of the 63 current Hall-of-Fame Pitchers.

Finally won 20 games in his last year at the age of 38.

He had (2) seasons each with 18 & 19 wins.

17 straight years with at least 11 wins.



...I know, I know...'wins are de-valued these days'.

BULL!

He gets my vote!

Where do you get 63 pitchers? I see 79 as the official figure. Anyhow, I think Mussina gets in this time around.

Interesting fact about Mussina:

Yankees won the World Series in 2000 and 2009. Mussina played for them eight seasons, from 2001-2008. Bad luck I guess.

All stats are from BBR...not sure how they got that number.


By the way, In 2018, Edgar got 70.4 percent of the vote and Moose got 63.5


and only one player who ever got 60% never got in(*)and Gil Hodges got to that level THREE times!

I'm really surprised more people don't complain about Gil Hodges never getting in.



*- Morris got at least 60% THREE times, but got in via the Veterans-ish committee last year.

I would like to see Mussina get in. He played his whole career in the tough AL East against strong teams, and he pitched thru the steroid era too which raises your ERA. He retired with a 20 win season which means he could have pitched more if he wanted to, and might have reached 300 wins with two more years.

Yeah, it happens. Look how many years Mattingly played for the Yankees without a championship, and the first year he is retired they win.

...and Nomar was traded the year the 'Sox finally won.


the 'Sox won 53 and lost 21 after the trade.


Fate is cruel sometimes.

It is not looking good for Mussina to get in this year. With 41% of the known votes, he has gained 16 votes from last year. Last year he was 49 short. The voters who remain anonymous have a tendency to voter for fewer players.

Edgar Martinez is looking good to get in. He has gained 17 votes and was only short 20 last year. It is looking like a 3 man class of Rivera, Halladay and Martinez. With Jeter the only strong candidate on next year's ballot, I would expect Mussina to join Jeter as the BBWAA 2020 HOF class.
