Hall of Fame Poll: Curt Schilling

And he has a good looking wife. - Jared Wickerham

Would you vote Curt Schilling into the Baseball Hall of Fame?

I'm going to skip Kenny Rogers, though his win-loss record (219-156) is almost identical to Schilling's and he had a handle of saves (28), but the 4.27 ERA doesn't scream Hall of Fame and he never won more than 18 games in a season and only got Cy Young votes once, finishing 5th in 2006. He did play in 4 All-Star games and had 5 Gold Gloves. Pitched in 762 games, starting 474 of them.

Curt Schilling had a 216-146 record but things seem to click for him at age 30. After he turned 30 he won 162 games, winning over 20 haves 3 times, finishing 2nd in Cy Young voting 3 times and making 6 All-Star teams.

He has 3 World Series rings (we beat out his Phillies in 1993 or he would have 4). He was co-MVP for the 2001 World series. And you likely remember the 'bloody sock' from 2004.

Course there is some post career stuff, but that shouldn't come into the voting. He's a outspoken Republican. He rode his video game company into the ground, costing himself a fortune.

On the plus side he is a fan of OOTP Baseball: "The only baseball sim I've ever gotten addicted to" was OOTP.
