  • BF Relief Hall of Fame: Round 1 (A-C)

    I've never conducted a BBF HoF before, and I've hardly participated in the existing ones. Any constructive feedback is much appreciated because this site is the most collectively knowledgeable baseball meeting in the universe of this third dimension.

    I have a great interest in relief pitching, from the pioneers to the groundbreakers to the specialists of today. I hope to create a Hall of Fame composed exclusively of relievers.

    Who is a reliever? Since 1950, it's anyone who's either appeared finished 300 games. Before 1950, it's anyone who's finished at least 150 games but hasn't started 250. Anyone who crosses over the two eras qualifies if they finished at least 200 games.

    Who belongs is up to you, but I hope everyone considers each pitcher's era and success as a starter if applicable. It's unfair to rank Dennis Eckersley below Jesse Orosco just because his relief WAR is lower.


    There's a total of about 127 relievers, so I'm guessing we'll elect 35-60. Don't go crazy and vote for everyone with like a WAR above 9.0!

    Here are all of the players that will be eligible throughout the voting, so you may want to plan who you'll vote for accordingly. Perhaps establish your personal HoF so you know who to vote for when the time comes.

      I think you posted before I had the poll up. Also, I'm not asking which relievers belong in the Hall. I'm creating a Relief Hall of Fame. Of the 120+ eligible players, I'm guessing you would pick more than five.

        Yes I did, I thought this would be like one of Bill Burgess greatest players type of threads.

        Out of the list in the poll I don't think I'd vote for any of em.

        The best one would have to be Jim Brewer or Abernanthy.

          I went with:
          Abernathy
          Adams
          Bedrosian
          Campbell
          Carroll

          I didn't exactly go research them though since there are little boards on the original courtery of Freakshow maybe I should have. If you can a none of the above might be needed or a statement that you have to pick one if that's your intention.

              When you get this going, include links to all past threads, including the master set. It also helps to post some basic stats for the people you are inquiring about.
