      Pretty elite group. Suggests Moose and Andy are HOF worthy.

      I’d say Mussina is definitely Hall-worthy.

      Andy is almost there. Get to 250-260 wins, stay 100 games over, add to the post-season resume, and I think he eventually makes it, though it will take a long time…possibly a Veterans’ Committee selection down the road.

      Well…maybe not…the HGH admission may keep him out. For a while, anyway.

      Outside of win totals, I never realized how close Pettitte and Glavine were in terms of ERA+ and W%.
