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!

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

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.
