    Ridiculous. It's not even a consideration. Even if he got to 200 wins he would have no shot because he was a bad pitcher until he was 30. I don't understand why you would even consider 200 wins anyways. He's 36, extremely injury prone, and 56 wins away. He's not going to average 19 wins the next three years which is what he would have to do to reach it before 40.

    His career numbers of 3.76 ERA and 1.28 WHIP aren't Hall of Fame worthy and will likely only get worse if he hangs on to get to 200 wins. He also doesn't have a whole lot of strike outs. He has absolutely nothing on his resume that makes you think HOF other than having a Cy Young.

    His ERA has been under 3.00 twice in 12 seasons.

    These HOF threads just keep getting sillier and sillier.

    To get into the HOF with less than 250 wins he's going to need a Pedro-level run of excellence. He's not getting in.

    The Cardinal HOF? Maybe.

    His hometown HOF? Probably.

    You were not talking about Cooperstown, right?

    And he has 144 career wins.

    one four four
