    Its re-freakin-diculous that Blylevan isn't in the Hall yet. If he had just 13 more wins, just 13 (one years work) he'd have 300 wins and be a guarantee.

    He has the K's, the complete games, the better than league average ERA and the wins, if they bothered to look.

    Its a crying shame.

    Sutter 12 seaons and ~1000IP with a 3.00 ERA and 1.15 WHIP gets in.
    Blyleven 21+ season and ~5000IP with a 3.31 ERA and 1.20 WHIP does not.

    Go figure. I know I would like to compete with those baseball writers as GMs to assemble a winning team.

    Very poor choice, IMO. Every year the HOF becomes less and less of a shrine and more and more 'shinola'.

    I guess there's hope for Casey then.

    I wouldn't get too tweaked about spare votes. Most writers don't even use up half the 10 slots they've got on the ballot so a few kick a vote the way of an old pal as a courtesy. No big deal. It's not like these guys were getting serious consideration. They can at least say they were on the ballot and that they didn't get shut out. It's the HOF balloting equivalent of a "Thanks for giving blood" sticker.

    according to Dan Patrick, Pete Rose got 10 write-in votes and 12 writers returned their ballots unmarked. I'm not a fan of Sutter's and agree that it's a crime that Blyleven isn't in. Definitely time for baseball to re-think the voting process
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    I agree that Sutter shouldn't have gotten in and Blyleven got jobbed again.

    Bert Blylevan should come out of retirement and pitch for the Reds. With the Reds offense I would bet he could win the 13 games to get him into Cooperstown. And he'd immediately become our 3rd best starter! Even at his age.

    If I was a voter I'd be the type to vote for Gary DiSarcina just for the heck of it. It's always sad to see someone get shut out. Who was the guy who went on a campaign a couple years ago to try and get a single vote from someone, a pitcher from the Astros maybe?
