Many guys on your second team ARE hall of famers...The few. The proud. The Met fans.

I'm just saying, if a guy like Don Sutton can get into the HOF, then why can't Ron Guidry get in. For only pitching 14 seasons, his numbers are very good.

When you have to add a qualifier like "for only pitching 14 years", a player's not going to get in unless they were absolutely dominant for a majority of their career. Guidry wasn't. He was incredible in 1978. He finished top 5 in the Cy Young 3 other times. He had a great career winning percentage. But his career numbers don't come close to Hall Worthy, and he wasn't consistently an elite pitcher. To get in Cooperstown having a short career like that, you need to do something like Sandy Koufax did. For a six year period, Koufax was the best in the game, and one of the best in the history of the game. Guidry at best was an elite pitcher for two years, then he was a good to very good pitcher. He doesn't pass the litmus test.
