Writer makes a case for and against.

Personally, he gets in, if I am a eligible voting writer.

Given the change from 4 man staffs to 5 man staffs. Hard to hold pitchers accountable to the total win stat total.

For a significant period of time, he was one of the best pitchers in baseball.

I would put him in. Not sure if he would make my current list of 10 if I was a voter due to the insane backlog of worthy candidates.

Plus that would make three HoF players on the 1988 O's which would amuse me greatly.

Hard to understand why the old school of thought and 300 victories have to be obtained to be eligible.

Big backlog and lots of eligible players being left out, it's a shame.

At the time yes but I am older and wiser now.

Back when I was in grade school I thought RBIs were important.

Olson had one of the better curve balls at his prime, I remember when Canseco was still in his prime, Olson threw a massive curve ball that looked like it was going at his head and he bailed, that bad boy broke and went down over the plate for a strike.

I wonder if he was the highest ever pick for someone drafted as a relief pitcher?

Anyone know?

I would have to guess yes, since he was the 4th overall pick that year.

From his wiki page.

He was drafted by the Orioles in the 1st round (4th pick) of the 1988 amateur draft, and was given a $200,000 signing bonus[1] before making his debut late in the season.
