Hall of 100

+

I know not everyone is a huge fan of ESPN, but I love the idea of a Hall of Fame that only has the top 100 players of all-time in it and to vote a new one in, you have to vote someone out. Obviously, as a Mets fan, I wanted to see where Tom Seaver landed. So, here are the pitchers that were ranked in the top 25: 7: Roger Clemens 12: Walter Johnson 13: Greg Maddux 17: Cy Young 23: Randy Johnson 24: Tom Seaver Now, they did this exercise ignoring the steroid issue, as Bonds was 3rd overall (behind Mays and Ruth). And for the purpose of my bitching, I will too. Roger Clemens, steroids or not, is a first ballot Hall of Famer and is one of the greatest pitchers of all-time. However, I have a hard time believing he is better than Walter Johnson, Greg Maddux and Tom Seaver (and in that order). I can even be convinced that Cy Young, Bob Gibson (#32) and Christy Mathewson (#29) belong ahead of him as well. Are they even trying to compile a list in good earnest here or are they just trying to kiss Clemens' ring?
