Will Pedro and Schilling be in the Hall of Fame?

Posted by redsoxcollector on October 29, 2009 at 11:31 PM

Pedro pitched a good game tonight, though in a losing effort.  A talk show I was listening to today discussed whether Pedro and Schilling would be hall-of-famers.  Curious, I checked baseballreference.com's ratings of the two in terms of hall of fame ratings, and threw Roger Clemens in as well.  


For an explanation of ratings see 

http://www.baseball-reference.com/about/leader_glossary.shtml#black_ink


Black Ink - average HOF'er scores 40

Pedro 55 Schilling 42 Clemens 100


Gray Ink - average HOF'er scores 185

Pedro 215 Schilling 205 Clemens 314 


Career Standards - likely HOF'er scores 100 or above

Pedro 202 Schilling 171 Clemens 332


Hall of Fame Monitor - likely HOF'er scores 50 or above   

Pedro 60 Schilling 46   Clemens 73  


The results bear out the opinions of the talk show hosts - Pedro should be in the hall for sure, and probably Schilling will be there as well.  And Pedro did it without steroids and bloody socks!

Pedro is without a doubt a first ballot Hall Of Famer. Schiling has a chance baised on his post season performances but I thinkit will really come down to his relaionship with the media in the next couple years since ultimatly they are the voters. His mouth just may keep him out.

I am actually kind of disillusioned by the HOF election process. It seems to amount to who the voters like, and the voters all introduce their own agenda. I always looked at HOF eligibility as how a player performed against his peers. It will be interesting when Bonds comes up. If they won't vote him in because of his "cheating" then they certainly can't vote in Clemens or A-Rod.

I don't have an opinion on this topic, but can tell you this. I had asked Schilling for a signed baseball for the Autism Society of NH to auction off. He sent me the ball a few days later. Schilling also wrote and said he and his wife want to get involved in supporting causes around autism.
