I think that he may be the only HOF pitcher to have never started a game.

Sutter in...but no one else.

The Jim Rice travesty continues and the Goose travesty begins!

he is.

Fingers started around 50 games., Eck started 361 games, and Hoyt Wilhem started around 50 games (including a no hitter against the New York Yankees)

Lee Smith belongs in the Hall before Goose, but they both should be there.



Rice belongs in the same category as Dawson and Blyleven. Open up a Hall Of Really Good Players and they can all be in that. But none of them belong in the Hall Of Fame

Yanks04...I'll give you some other players to mull on and you tell me if you think (for reals) they should be in the Hall of Fame.

Player A: 3 homeruns, 69 rbi, .456 OPS
Player B: 0 homeruns, 56 rbi, .353 OPS
