Hall of Fame Ballots Counted: Sutter In; Gossage, Mattingly Will Have to Wait
Tuesday, January 10, 2006
Scary good talent, scary scary beard

Legendary closer Bruce Sutter became the newest face in Cooperstown today, and the only one on this year’s ballot to earn the 390 votes necessary for a ticket to HOF-land. Sutter made history by being the only “pure reliever” to be elected to the Hall; Sutter never started a single game in his career. Other savers such as Rollie Fingers and Dennis Eckersley have been elected to the Hall as well, but also had successful periods as starting pitchers as well. Sutter’s save-only election will likely set a precedent for other possible future HOF-ers like Trevor Hoffman and, of course, our boy Mo. It will be interesting to see how relievers, especially closers, are looked at in comparison with starters in the next few years.

Jim Rice and Rich Gossage both came within 55 votes of the 390-vote benchmark, so mark them on down in your PDA as likely elections next year. Mr. Mattingly earned 64 votes, enough to guarantee him a spot on the ballot next year, as did Orel Hershiser and Dale Murphy. Not surprisingly, Doc Gooden did not earn enough votes to remain on the ballot for next year.

The originator of the split finger....Clemens should thank him for bringing up this pitch...if he already hasnt...
