Hall of Fame Poll: Tom Glavine

Tom Glavine - Mike Zarrilli

Would you vote Tom Glavine into the Baseball Hall of Fame?

Happy Thanksgiving, to those of you on the other side of the border. Hope the turkey is great. And thanks for giving us football to watch, since there isn't going to be any baseball news today.

I'm going to skip a couple of guys, Ray Durham and Eric Gagne, they were both good players, but not Hall of Fame types.

Ray Durham played 14 seasons in the majors, mostly as a second baseman, for the White Sox, Giants, A's and Brewers. He hit .277/.352/.436, with 192 home runs, 875 RBI and 273 stolen bases. He made the All-Star team twice. He was a pretty good leadoff hitter, in the early part of his career. He scored over 100 runs 6 straight seasons. I'd be really happy if the Jays could find a second baseman like him.

As much as it would be nice to have a French Canadian in the Hall. Eric Gagne's was great, for 3 seasons. He had 152 saves, over those 3 seasons and set a record for successful consecutive saves with 85. Unfortunately injuries robbed him of his effectiveness and shortened his career.  In total he played 10 seasons, pitched in 402 game, had 187 saves with a 3.47 ERA.

Now Tom Glavine has a good shot at the Hall. A 22 year career, 305 wins, 203 losses. A 3.54 ERA in 682 games, all starts. He won 2 Cy Youngs, was named to 10 All-Star teams and even has 4 Silver Slugger awards for best hitting pitcher. His teams made it to the playoffs 10 times, though he only has 1 ring. He was on the losing side against the Blue Jays in 1992.

I don't really think I have to sell him, just look at his stats.
