Miami Herald - https://www.miamiherald.com/sports/mlb/miami-marlins/article217064720.html

The Marlins have 51 wins recorded by 21 different pitchers.  14 Orioles pitchers have been credited for a win, with Bundy stuck on 7, and yes, Chris Tillman won a game.   While 7 wins wouldn't be a MLB record, Bundy would set a team record for fewest wins leading the club.

Jose Urena led the Marlins with 9 wins.  That tops Bundy, whose 8 wins led the team, and ties the lowest total since 1988 with Ballard and Schmidt.

Hey, I get it.  I'd be pretty happy if he went in as an Oriole, no doubt.  I wouldn't be as elated as when Cal got it, but anytime a player from your team gets into the Hall, it's special no matter what you feel towards the guy.  There definitely could be an attitude of "another yanker in the hall" and he might not get as much attention, even if he goes in with Jeter or Rivera.  

 

If Mussina goes in the HOF as an Oriole, does he get a statue.  If he gets a statue, does he even show up for his own statue ceremony?

I don't think he goes in an as an Oriole.  Just a hunch.

But I guess he'd have to have a statue.  Thanks, Mike...for the...almost no-hitter?  Couple good playoff performances.

I was a huge Mussina fan, but no statue for him, even if he went into the HOF as an Oriole.

Statue = Hall + Ring.

There could be an exception someday, but not for a guy who spent nearly half his career elsewhere.   I could see it if the O’s had an Ernie Banks equivalent who was a career O but never got a ring.

Won't be another player I see in my lifetime with that criteria.  

I’m roughly your age, and I plan to live to see it.   But then, I’m foolishly optimistic both regarding the Orioles and my own longevity.

As Frank Sinatra once said:

May you live to be one hundred and nine, and may the last face you see be mine.

Going out on a limb, I think it's safe to rule out anyone on the current roster going to Cooperstown as anything but a visitor.  😎 Let's say the new GM hits a grand slam with the #1 pick this year.  Pick a number, say 14 years for the career, and add 6 more to go in as a first ballot induction, so we're 20 years away?  More?  Even if we use the Frank Robinson rule and include players who made their mark here, but didn't start here, we're still a lot of  years away.   ManNY is more likely to be the next home grown player in Cooperstown, but that, and the ring, would be earned in NY.  Anyway...

I'll tell my son to find you and Weams at the ceremony.

    • I'd be genuinely thrilled to see Bleier at the ASG
    • You're just cherry picking the stats to prove your point.   
    • They're paying more-or-less Harper money for a player of similar age but who has Harper's one peak year almost every year.  Trout is #1 on the all time bb-ref WAR list through his age.  You can go down 50 or 75 spots below Trout and you have 80% of the players there as clear HOFers.   Trout's peers are Cobb, Mantle, Hornsby, ARod, Foxx, Ott, Griffey Jr, Speaker, Vaughn, Aaron, Frank... If you're not willing to pay going rates for Mike Trout, you would have also been willing to let any of those players walk because they were too risky.   Here's a list of players whose entire careers were worth less than Trout has been so far: Winfield, Ashburn, Billy Williams, Sliding Billy Hamilton, Lou Boudreau, Home Run Baker, Jesse Burkett, Harmon Killebrew, Mike Piazza, Vlad, Yogi, Hank Greenberg, Willie Stargell, Bill Dickey, Joe Medwick, Willie Keeler, George Sisler, Jimmy Collins, Elmer Flick.  There are nine Hall of Famers whose entire careers were worth less than half of Mike Trout's first eight seasons.
    • I love all the information available, especially on prospects. There's a great wealth of knowledge among everyone who contributes, and I appreciate that.
    • I agree with you that Beane and Moneyball was really influential...but it only sorta', kinda' worked.  2002 Stats: Hudson 238 IP ERA+145 Zito 229 IP ERA+ 158 Mulder 207 IP ERA+125 Lidle 192IP ERA+112 Zito and Mulder were first round draft picks. I didn't read the book, but I loved the movie. But I think the truth is that analytics had way, way, way less to do with the success of those teams than the hype would lead some to believe. If so, then the influence of the book on the spread of analytics may be more to do with hype and spin than an actual analysis of the effects of analytics. I find that fun.  It will be interesting to see how analytics are viewed in ten to fifteen years. I think in some cases the "success" of analytics on team wins could be luck much like how some scouts back in the day made a name for themselves by signing a player that turned out to be a great player. A big part of that is getting lucky with injuries, etc. I wonder if the same thing might be happening with some of the models that supposedly said pick player A over player B in a draft, etc. Only time will tell and maybe not even then (pretty soon everybody will be doing pretty much the same thing with analytics and there may be no relative advantages as it becomes part of the status quo).   
    • At least. The NFL cap is also complicated in that signing bonuses are prorated for each year of the contract (e.g. $20M bonus on a 4 year contract counts for $5M each year) and those prorated things come due right away when a player is traded or cut. So for example Joe Flacco was traded and the Ravens aren't paying him anything this year but he still counts $16M against the Ravens' cap this year. But also they just signed Earl Thomas, he'll get a $20M signing bonus and a $2M salary this year but he only counts $7M against the cap. Maybe it all sort of evens out but who knows.
    • No one cares.  Except us.  And we're not surprised.
