Really, Pedro could be the best pitcher of all time. Not in my book. Sorry, not knocking the guy, but there has been some really great pitchers over the years. and WTH, he mentions only 2 SP getting in and none of them was Mussina. So he needs to relook at his facts, doesnt he?

 

only two pitchers born in the past 50 years have been inducted, and one, Pedro Martínez, has a credible claim to make toward being the best pitcher of all time. (The other, Halladay, made it in on the first ballot, sadly after his passing in a 2017 plane crash.) Schilling, this year, and Sabathia, soon, seem possible to join them.

Moose wasn't born in the last 50 years. I'm not sure why he uses that cutoff, probably because it excludes all but Pedro and Halladay.

Most HOF guys are going to go in at least until their mid-40s. So "nobody under 50" really just means that not many first ballot, no-doubt-about-it types have come eligible in the past few years.

Thanks, wow 51 years, lol

But, I appreciate the explanation, makes more sense now.
