    Re: Andre Dawson to MLB HOF

    I think he is more than worthy...he was a stud defender too...until his knees caused him issues.

    I know Roberto Alomar is more than controversial...but he should have been a 1st ballot hall of famer! He could dominate games defensively and offensively!

    The Hawk is one of my alltime favorites!!!!!!!! Extremely happy for him.

    How many clips of him throwing out guys running to first-base will we get to see?

    I still think the whole "spitting" incident is what didn't get him in the first time. He will get in next year.

    Could not agree more! Easily one of the best players of his generation. Easily!

    He spit on an umpire, didn't leave the best impression with writers.
    I think it's a ******* joke Blyleven still isn't in.

    I feel worse for Blyleven than Alomar. Blyleven could get wins with some teams that were awful.

    Welcome to Bert Belongs!

    Can't find it, but there's some amazing stats out there about how many games he lost where he only gave up one or two runs. Had very little run support in his career.

    Re: Andre Dawson to MLB HOF

    One of only three pitchers to ever win a Major League game before his 20th birthday and also win a Major League game after his 40th birthday. (from bertbelongs.com)


    That's impressive longevity. And to throw all those innings and complete games. He ate innings, but did it as a stellar pitcher, not just a guy who hangs around.
