    BBF Progressive HoF Election: 2008

    PLEASE READ BEFORE VOTING!

    Format and Rules
    Voting Rules:
    Voters may vote for between 0-15 candidates. Votes will be made public and voters are encouraged to post their ballots in the thread and not view results before voting. PLEASE LIMIT YOUR BALLOT TO 15 VOTES AT MOST. EXCESS VOTES MAY RESULT IN YOUR BALLOT BEING DISQUALIFIED.
    -Blank Ballots: A "None of the Above" option is available if you believe no one is worthy and you wish to submit a blank ballot. This option is not to be taken lightly and it is strongly urged that it be used only after the utmost consideration, as non-votes carry great weight. Additionally, if using this option, it would be of great contribution to post your rationale.

    Voting Criteria: Players are to be evaluated within the context of the era in which they played and the history of the game to that point. Players are not to be held to standards that would materialize at a time beyond the year of the current election. Modern statistical analysis is permitted but must be applied strictly within historical context not to go beyond the year of the current election. Players are to be judged based solely on their playing careers. Other, non-playing contributions may be considered to the extent that they coincided with a player's playing career (such as a player/manager).

    Thoughtfulness and Editing Ballots: Please review and thoughtfully consider the candidates before voting, and make sure you have accurately filled out your ballot before submitting. Requests for editing ballots after the fact will generally not be honored. Exceptions might be made if a voter accidentally voted for the wrong player or accidentally went over the voting limit (but it is strongly encourage you to do your best to prevent either from happening).

    Required Support: Players receiving at least 75% support in an election will be elected. Players need at least 5% support to appear on the next ballot.

    Player Eligibility: Players eligible for an election will have last played at least 5 years prior to the election year and have appeared in at least 10 Major League seasons. If a player appeared in less than 10 seasons, he may still be eligible if he had a minimum of 3000 PAs or 1500 IP, though extra scrutiny will be applied. Players will remain on the ballot for 15 years, provided they continue to receive at least 5% of the vote, at which point they will become indefinitely eligible for periodic elections conducted by the Veterans Committee.
    - Death Exception: For players who meet the criteria for consideration, but die before their first year of eligibility can have the five year waiting period waived and placed on the ballot the year of death or the year after death if it occurs after December 1.

    Election Period: Elections will close exactly one week after starting. The next election might not commence for another day or two.

    Conduct Policy: Every vote is a voter's opinion on who should be elected to the Hall of Fame. It is our responsibility as voters to be respectful towards each other. Personal attacks should not be tolerated and you should notify a moderator rather than allowing an argument to escalate and further derail discussion of the candidates.

    2008 Guide
    There are 38 candidates on the 2008 ballot - 25 holdovers and 13 first timers. First time eligible players last played in 2003 (unless qualifying under the age or death rules, or were accidentally omitted on the ballot in previous years).

    Darrell Evans
    Dwight Evans
    Mark Grace
    Rickey Henderson

    I think this is the first time I've cast a ballot of less than 10 in this project and I'm only firm on Clark, Cone, Henderson and Steib. This might be the weakest ballot to date minus Rickey Henderson:

    Clark
    Cone
    Henderson
    Hershiser
    Mattingly
    McGwire
    Quisenberry
    Randolph
    Steib

    I'm still not ready on WClark. He was a fine player, but I think he's fairly close to a marginal HOFer, even in our expanded one. I will vote for him, but not yet.

    Stieb and a couple of others are future possibilities.

    For the first time in forever, I didn't vote for 15 players.

    Buddy Bell
    Albert Belle
    Will Clark
    Dwight Evans
    Mark Grace
    Rickey Henderson
    Tommy John
    Don Mattingly
    Mark McGwire

    Dave Stieb

    I guess if I'm voting for Stieb I should be voting for Hershiser and Cone as well.

    I'm a little surprised by the lack of support for Dave Cone here. Especially from people who use WAR. His career WAR is comparable to or better than about 20 pitchers already elected here. His peak WAR numbers are similar to a number of pitchers elected here. That's not even getting into his counting stats or intangibles. He belongs in this project's hall.

    Cone certainly will get some attention from me, but not yet. As will Stieb. Both seem to me to be plausible lower level HOF candidates.

    How would you put him vis a vis Stieb, Hershiser and the aformentioned (by me) trio of Fernando, Guidry and Gooden.

    In terms of career WAR, Cone comes out on top and is only close to Steib:

    Cone 56.9
    Steib 53.0
    Gooden 49.9
    Guidry 44.4
    Valenzuela 40.7

    Personally, I would rank them Steib, Cone, Guidry, Gooden, Valenzuela with Valenzuela and Gooden below the HOF line based on the sum of their parts as pitchers.

    Thanks. Coney is 194-126 .606 2898.2 IP 121 ERA+. LL in Kx2, W, Pct. IP, Sho. I decided to re-check Tommy Bridges who is sort of a sore spot for some so to speak...194-138, 2826 IP, 126 ERA+ LL Kx2, W. I might have shorted them on LL but you get the point. Stieb is 176-137 2895.1 IP 123 ERA+ LL ERA, ERA+x2, IPx2, Sho (again I think I got most of it).

    I don't have time right now to run the others that I mentioned but these three seem superficially to be close (and I did not look at the numbers beforehand or cherry pick). You can give that any type of interpretation you wish.

    It's probably too little too late, but a comment from jjpm in the last election got me to reconsider Tommy John. I always considered John to just be a pretty good pitcher who pitched for a long time, but I think that was selling him short, at least for this Hall. I now realize the reason John probably hasn't been elected is that he pitched for too long, thereby undermining what would have otherwise been worthy rate stats. More specifically, if you look at just John's 17 season peak, from 1965 to 1982, a period much longer than most careers, I think that stretch alone fits within our standards. Here's some highlights from that stretch:

    - 3600 IP
    - 235 Wins
    - 119 ERA+
    - 3.03 ERA
    - 1.223 WHIP
    - No below average ERA+ seasons
    - 5 seasons with ERA+ over 130 (161 high)
    - 5 best ERA+ average of 141, and 10 best of 130
    - Twice Cy Young runnerup (plus another 4th place finish)
    - 53.9 pitching WAR
    - 5 best pitching WAR of 25.7 and 10 best of 41.3 (on par with the entire careers of Bob Lemon, Wes Ferrell, Lefty Gomez, and Wilbur Cooper, and ahead of the entire careers of the likes of Burleigh Grimes, Bucky Walters, Carl Mays, Dizzy Dean, and Addie Joss).

    It seems to me that had John hung it up after 1982, when he was 40 and had already pitched over 3700 innings, his rate stats and longevity would have been enough to make this Hall. It seems he's being punished for hanging on for seven seasons into his mid 40s.

    Also consider that John's 3600 IP and 119 ERA+ during that 17 year peak is a combination of longevity and production that should put him ahead of at least the following inductees:

    Wes Ferrell: 2600 IP, 117 ERA+ (does not include hitting, of course)
    Urban Shocker: 2700 IP, 124 ERA+
    Bob Lemon: 2900 IP, 119 ERA+
    Carl Mays: 3000 IP, 120 ERA+
    Bucky Walters: 3100 IP, 116 ERA+
    Billy Pierce: 3300 IP, 119 ERA+
    Luis Tiant: 3500 IP, 115 ERA+
    Wilbur Cooper: 3500 IP, 116 ERA+
    Jim Bunning: 3800 IP, 114 ERA+
    Burleigh Grimes: 4200 IP, 109 ERA+

    In sum, it seems that John was just as good, if not better than several of these pitchers, for at least the length of their entire careers, and that what holds John back, is that unlike these pitchers, he continued to pitch for several more seasons. We've basically established that 3000-3500 IP or so with a 115 ERA+ is good enough - well John did better than that (his mistake it seems was not walking away at that point).

    In addition, John's 53.9 pitching WAR from that 17 year stretch, puts him ahead of the entire careers of the following inductees (of course, individual circumstances will vary, but the group is large enough to suggest that John fits in somewhere):

    Joe McGinnity: 53.7
    Red Ruffing: 53.6
    Billy Pierce: 53.5
    Bob Caruthers: 52.6
    Early Wynn: 52
    Eppa Rixey: 52
    Tommy Bridges: 50.7
    Rube Waddell: 50.2
    Clark Griffith: 49
    Urban Shocker: 47
    Wilbur Cooper: 43.7
    Lefty Gomez: 43
    Bob Lemon: 42.4
    Hoyt Wilhelm: 41.3
    Wes Ferrell: 41.3
    Addie Joss: 40.9
    Goose Gossage: 40.0
    Dizzy Dean: 39.6
    Carl Mays: 39.6
    Bucky Walters: 38.2
    Burleigh Grimes: 37.2

    When you consider the rest of John's long career and career 59.0 pitching WAR, I don't see how he's that disimilar from long career inductees such as Red Faber (4100 IP, 119 ERA, 55.2 WAR), Red Ruffing (4300 IP, 110 ERA+, 53.6 WAR), Eppa Rixey (4500 IP, 115 ERA+, 51.2 WAR), and Early Wynn (4600 IP, 107 ERA+, 52 WAR).

    Lastly, I also think some subjective credit is worthwhile for the surgery which bears his name. I know, he didn't develop the procedure, but the procedure has become an almost routine part of the game today, saving and/or revitalizing the careers of countless pitchers. John's role in that shouldn't be overly minimized because it still took some measure of fortitude to be the first into the void, perform what was then a far from perfected and likely grueling rehabilitation, and come back as good as before as an example for everyone who would come after. The fact that John could come back after being the first and have a 120 ERA+ over the following 7 seasons and 1550 IP, is a huge testament to his ability and perseverance, IMO. Had John not been so successful, who knows how it would have affected perceptions of the procedure.

    There are 21 pitchers that have been elected in this project with career WAR lower than Steib (see the list DoubleX posted in his Tommy John post for reference) and even more than that with rate stats below Cone. Those pitchers you mentioned would have needed to pitch at least 2-3 more seasons at an All-Star to CY Young pace just to catch Cone.

    I think that we collectively are not giving pitchers from the 70s and 80s a fair shake. Guidry, Cone, Hershiser, Steib, Saberhagen all compare favorably to 20 or more pitchers who we have elected and by many measures, should be no brainers if looking at who we elected. Even Gooden and Viola would be better picks than some of the pitchers we elected from other generations in this project.

    We seem to be having some difficulty assessing pitchers from the 80s. Part of it may be because it was a time when pitching staffs transitioned to having five starters and being far more bullpen reliant, thus skewing pitching stats from what has been traditionally expected. Another part of it is that several of the best pitchers from the 80s, including everyone you mentioned, had good peaks, but didn't really have more than a few years of greatness and/or tailed off quickly. WAR figures aside, their careers don't quite feel full-bodied enough, if that makes any sense. It also doesn't help these pitchers that several of their successors would go on to have long periods of sustained excellence and amass more traditional looking counting stats.

    That all being said, if an argument can be made showing that some of these pitchers aren't too different than the likes of pitchers we've elected that were elected largely due to just their peak performance, such as Lefty Gomez, Tommy Bridges, Bucky Walters, Wilbur Cooper, Carl Mays, and Urban Shocker, then there might be some hope for them.

    As for the 70s, I don't think we've been skimpy at all. We've elected 10 pitchers that could best be associated with that decade:

    Bert Blyleven
    Steve Carlton
    Fergie Jenkins
    Phil Niekro
    Jim Palmer
    Gaylord Perry
    Nolan Ryan
    Tom Seaver
    Don Sutton
    Luis Tiant

    I think that's a pretty good group from the 70s. I'd also now argue that Tommy John would be a fitting addition given our standards, but I don't see anyone else from that period beyond that.

    Then once we start looking at the 90s (and beyond), we could very well elect another large group which includes:

    Kevin Brown
    Roger Clemens
    Tom Glavine
    Randy Johnson
    Pedro Martinez
    Greg Maddux
    Mike Mussina
    Curt Schilling
    John Smoltz

    So it may just be a coincidence that for whatever reason (perhaps those stated above), the 80s just didn't have the kind of talent we're looking for at this point. Definitely a group with strong peaks, but something seems to be lacking in terms of career production (though again, on the other hand, that hasn't stopped us with some earlier generations).

    Twenty is more than one-quarter of the pitchers elected here. Such a claim without naming names is outlandish. If the twenty are named it may be clear that the writer is a bigger fan of the "70s and 80s" than are most voters.

    ...
    "largely due to just their peak performance" is a stretch regarding any of them but Bucky Walters, probably

    This group has elected Dizzy Dean, who fits.
    The advocates of scattered peaks may add Dazzy Vance.

    This group has elected Dizzy Dean, who fits.
    The advocates of scattered peaks may add Dazzy Vance.
    Addie Joss, Sandy Koufax and Joe McGinnity say hello.

    You have simply copied Mike's list of "Progressive HOF" pitchers with lowest career pitching WAR, which you did not mention in #18. I'm not happy about that.

    Otherwise it depends what you mean by happy. I'll make a note that jjpm74 is now willing to judge players simply "comparable" according to career WAR ratings alone. Didn't he(John) raise a voice about approach that last month?

    According to #15, the quintet should be no-brainers by many measures.
    Are they no-brainers by WAR? Is there another such measure?

    Note that even David Cone beats the listed pitchers by career WAR only if we ignore batting/baserunning for Ruffing, Wynn, and Caruthers. Some of the others beat McGinnity, Pierce, or Rixey only if we make favorable decisions about batting/running WAR or lack thereof in the American League.

    Guidry doesn't belong in the quintet at all with career pitching WAR 44.4 (and no batting record)? Unless there is a 10-win bonus for Yankees.

    That's not really the point I was trying to get across. What I meant is that those pitchers careers were largely all peak but without much filler and were relatively short (for whatever reason). Urban Shocker, Tommy Bridges, and Lefty Gomez are probably the best examples of this. Shocker's 124 ERA+ in 2700 IP, Bridges 126 ERA+ in 2800 IP, and Gomez's 126 ERA+ in 2500 IP, really aren't too different than David Cone (121 ERA+, 2900 IP), Dave Stieb (123 ERA+, 2900 IP), Ron Guidry (119 ERA+, 2400 IP), Jimmy Key (122 ERA+, 2600 IP), and Bret Saberhagen (2600 IP, 126 ERA+).

    Basically, my point was that the 80s, for whatever reason, seem to have a lot of pitchers in the Shocker/Bridges/Gomez mold of good peak, but little else. My further point was that if our standards include Shocker/Bridges/Gomez types, perhaps we need to take a closer look at Cone/Stieb/Guidy/Key/Saberhagen (of course, individual circumstances will vary).

    As for the other pitchers I mentioned, Mays, Cooper, Walters, I think they are generally of the same breed, though with more filler and perhaps less impressive peaks than some of the aforementioned shorter career players. A guy like Orel Hershiser probably would be in this vein. In retrospect though, if I were to go back and make a list of our more questionable selections, I would probably include several of these pitchers, at least partly because they set a standard which could open a door for a number of these more recent players.
