one who doesn't get why he's in hof? popularized splitter. wow. what is with the lovefest for him over so many other 90 innings a year players? i'm guessing playing for cards and cubs didn't hurt. (but, doesn't help lee smith.) it's so funny how these things work. baseball media has floated his name as a possible hof'er for so long - and yet continually dimisses the other short "closers" of his era smith, reardon, goose... as not worthy.
