    I sometimes do sometimes don't vote for Swan becuase really all he has is 1978 and 1979. That's it. Ronnie and Sid were there from before 86 and stayed after 88. ERA title notwithstanding (which is Swannies main selling point and which keeps him out of the Roger Craig category) both were better. At any rate Bill Swift once led the NL in ERA so its not like its this super mark of greatness.

      Is it because they played on winning teams and won a ring ?

      Are there really Met fans that buy into the 'win method' ?
      And Terry Leach finished his Mets career with a better W-L% and ERA than any of them - and finished his career with more WS rings than any of them (he was a worthy contributor to the 1991 Twins). The only difference is that Leach never got a proper shot with the team - when he did he produced as well as any of them.

      And I agree with you about Swan; I support all of them for OMHOF. Next election please remember to vote for Leach: he deserves to be remembered.

      As for Schiraldi, It's a Hall of Fame and he's rightfully famous in Mets history. Sure he was trying to beat the Mets, but in a way there's something strangely Metslike about his fame lying in his failure to do so. If people can support Mays even though there's not much in his Mets career to warrant it, I'm not sure supporting Schiraldi stretches the boundaries much further.

        Well, let's give warm welcomes to Darling, El Sid, and Dr. K (our sixth unanimous induction; that is, unless one discounts the fact that Seaver wasn't unanimous [for whatever reason]).

        Too bad Milner came so close yet so far. His highest percentage to date. I think we should push as hard as we can for his election before his eligibility runs out!

        Same goes for Swannie!
        Put it in the books.
