    It’s a short list which should get shorter very soon:

    Is there ever any chance that Kaat, John, Moyer or Tanana ever make the Hall of Fame?

      To tell the truth, I don’t think any of the four are real Hall of Famers, but, in order of marginality (closest to furthest), I’d rate them John, Kaat, then Tanana and Moyer more or less even to each other.

      I wouldn’t think it a travesty if John and Kaat made it, eventually. The other two…meh.
