Also on the Pettitte hall argument I think he has a decent chance the things that work against him is he never won a Cy Young, his ERA is pretty high its close to 4 which considering those in the hall and trying to get in and then there's of course the PED connection.
He will not get in on the first try, but maybe. Depends on how history thinks of him in a few years and who else is on the ballet. He did play and succeed while playing most of his career in the hardest division during the roid era. Has to count for something.
Plus, if Bert Blyleven gets in, so shoudl Mussina and Pettitte and Jack Morris for fucks sakes. Jack is Hall of Fame!
