    Troy Percival
    Jason Schmidt

    Randy, Pedro, Smoltz. Biggio, is really close. I wonder if he will be more a percieved PED guy going forward?

    The sad thing is, some moron will actually cast a vote for him, or Rich Aurilia or someone like that and make the voting process even more of a farce than it already is.

    I don't think anyone ever thought Biggio was a PED guy. His flaw is that he was a compiler, never having big seasons, but got to the 3000 hit mark.

    Smoltz isn't remotely HOF worthy. Dude had 1 - 20 win season, only 15+ wins 6x, barely got over 200wins. Andy Pettitte has a better case for the HOF, cause he wasn't on the losing end of the best games he ever pitched.

    213 wins, 154 saves. 3000 Ks. A Cy Young. 66 War. 125,ERA +.

    Looks pretty impressive. I guess he gets knocked down a bit for volunteering to close. I like him better than say Sutton who was always a Robin, never a batman.

    Biggio is not a HoF er. A hall of very good yes. My criteria beyond the numbers, if he is your team's best player, can you be considered a WS team? I'm also suspicious on how he went from a 700 ops player in his first 5 years to a 900 ops guy after. I guess it can happen being clean, though I can't recall anyone, but he played in the wrong era to escape scrutiny.

    I saw Nomar eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch in the dugout all the time when i would go to the games. Looked like he was using rice puddin instead of milk, which is odd cuz that's what I do

    213 wins is not impressive at all. When you take into account it took him 21years to compile those wins and he only won 16games or more 3x it is ridiculous to consider him.

    Dude had 1 HOF caliber season and that was the only season of his career he wasn't the second or 3rd best pitcher on his team. If he was the Braves best pitcher during that era, they wouldn't have had the opportunity to choke all them post seasons.

    It would be cool if Bags and Bigs got in at the same time.

    Juiced up Bagwell got a better chance of getting pregnant than going into the HOF.
