When I first started posting on more intelligent baseball boards a few years ago, I came across a couple ideas I hadn't much thought before. The first was that Curt Schilling, Mike Mussina and Kevin Brown were all fairly similar to eachother, and the second was that they all probably belonged in the Hall of Fame. Sean Smith's WAR would seem to agree with the first point very much, as this graph shows. The second point is up for debate, but, on this graph, I've included a Hall of Famer that few disagree with for comparison: Willie McCovey. Over the last couple decades we've been blessed with four of the very greatest pitchers who have ever lived, and they were all at their best in a very close period of time. As a result, I think the Mussinas and Browns got forgotten a little as second rate pitchers, but they were still very much great. Over recent years, it's become accept that Tom Glavine and John Smoltz are Hall of Famers (with good reason), and it seems Mussina may have joined that class as well (with more difficulty than he should have faced). Schilling might be in that group, too, but Brown -- always seemingly underrated -- belongs in their conversation, as well. Also of interest, perhaps in a later piece, is a third tier of pitchers behind even this including names like David Cone and -- to my shock -- Bret Saberhagen who aren't so far behind this group that they should be easily dismissed (though I know Sabes already has been). A large version can be found here. Career path can be found here. Career Totals Mussina: 74.8 Schilling: 69.8 McCovey: 66.7 Brown: 64.9

Schilling

Curt Schilling officially retired. If anyone wants to say "no" on Schilling in the Hall, then OK, great. But if it ever comes down to saying "no" to Schilling but "yes" on Jack Morris thanks to "postseason heroics," then please keep their actual postseason numbers in mind, rather than the fantasies of Jack Morris dominating and intimidating every time out: Morris: 92.1 IP, 7-4, 64 K, 32 BB, 3.80 ERA Good numbers, plus one truly legendary game. Schilling: 133.1 IP, 11-2, 120 K, 25 BB, 2.23 ERA Ridiculous numbers. Bloody sock game. And then you get into the fact that Schilling (career adj. ERA+ of 127) was just way better than Morris (105). Morris threw about 600 more innings than Schilling, but struck out about 700 less batters. Morris' Hall of Fame case being mostly aided by postseason legend is a bit of a "land of make believe" situation. Schilling's isn't. Schilling is one of the great postseason performers in the history of baseball. I'm not a particularly big fan of Schilling's either (though I have no "hate" for the guy), but I feel blessed to have seen him perform. If I had a Hall vote, he'd get mine.
