Kay Adams talk about that, and whether — gasp! — Delmon Young will be a blessing or a curse for the Phillies.

    My first reaction is “Ha, no way”.

    Then, I looked at this.

    Tim Hudson V. Player A :
    Wins:
    Hudson 200, A: 201

    Losses:
    Hudson 105, a: 103

    ERA:
    Hudson: 3.42, A: 3.35

    IP:
    Hudson: 2717, A: 2719

    SO:
    Hudson: 1825, A: 2097

    BB:
    Hudson: 821, A: 569

    HR:
    Hudson: 215, A: 232

    Now, looking at this, player A is a bit better but certainly not by much.

    The thing is, player A is Roy Halladay, who many consider to be a no-doubt Hall of Famer.

      Halladay is hurt by his first few years in the league. but Halladay’s peak is miles better than Hudson’s. With the exception of Hudson’s streak of 4 great years for the A’s he was largely just an above average pitcher for much of his career.

      I know WAR isn’t the be all end all, but according to that Halladay has 6 season’s better than Hudson’s best.

      I’m not sure that “Halladay, who many consider to be a no-doubt Hall of Famer.” is still a true statement. Three years ago he seemed on track for the recognition. However, he is looking about ready to have a fork stuck in him and he’s far short of HoF at this point. And however many games he has left are likely to hurt his rate stats (ERA, k/9, etc).

    I say neither really. Halladay has had a few completely dominating years that fall in there with some ok years.

    yes by along shot

    Not a chance with 200 wins. Not with this era a voters. No way.

    • kollin7 - May 1, 2013 at 6:22 PM

      Yeah it depends on your definition of what a hall of fame resumè is. And this group of voters, clearly, are pretty strict on who gets in.

    • skids003 - May 2, 2013 at 8:26 AM

      With these voters, you may be right randy, but I think if he can get it to 230 wins, he may have a chance. He’s obviously not a roider, he’s a great teammate and does alot of charity work. He’s the kind they need in there, but your right, this bunch votes no one in, they all have an agenda.

    Is Roy Oswalt a HOFer? How about Johan Santana? Because they’ve all wound up with pretty much the same career….and none were anywhere near as good as that jack-hole video game “developer” that many don’t think is a HOFer.

  6. cackalackyank - May 2, 2013 at 12:12 AM

    What about C. Wins 248 Loses 144 IP 3163.1 ERA 3.86 SO 2345 BB 990 HR 274 ?
