What do you see happening in 2018 for your team? For your preferred league? for individual players? for the game itself?

All good reasons, but the writer left out the most compelling reason for HOF entry deserved by this player:

Only Cy Young (316), Phil Niekro (287), and Warren Spahn (277) won more games after turning 30 than Jamie Moyer.

Phil Niekro and Warren Spahn each had one season in their careers where the finished with an ERA of over 5.00.  Cy Young none.   

Jamie Moyer eight.

Moyer is not a HoF pitcher.

Moose probably is.

Mussina should already be in.

Meanwhile, are the Sox cheap or is Martinez greedy?
