    Got into a good discussion with a seamhead. He says the Mark Buehrle has guaranteed his place in Cooperstown with his second no hitter. But it got me to thinking, what other active players are sure fire HOFers?

    I don't believe the story.

    Ragu. Time to grow up. I'm trying to open a serious discussion on the topic. You're supposed to be a moderator, someone that we should look up to for leadership not badgering. No one is telling you what to do but it's time to give it a break.

    You should feel violated.

    Buerhle's not a shoo-in. As far as recent: Johnson, Clemens, Smoltz, Glavine, Hoffman and Rivera are shoo-ins. Pedro Martinez is probable

    Johnny Vander Meer had two back to back and he's not in.

    I think Buerhle's in.

    That was my argument. I put Buerhle in the same class as Vander Meer. Of every day players, Ichiro, Griffey, and Pujols lead the walk through Cooperstown. Pedro is in if he doesn't stink up his comeback attempt with the Phillies.

    Pedro is in. Easy. Buherle? I don't think so.

    I don't believe your story because I don't believe a "seamhead" would say that Buerhle has secured his place in the hall. The guy only has 133 wins to go along with his 3.76 career ERA. He needs 5-6 more really good years to make his case stronger.

    Oh, and dooley, I don't see any way that Pedro isn't a lock to be in.

    Pedro is having an awful closing 3-4 years to his career, and more if he keeps dragging it out. His best being further and further in his past is not helping him.
