OK, so now we know that Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven are the 2011 Baseball Hall of Fame enshrinees. Time to fast-forward to a future vote.
New York Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte is apparently serious about bringing an end to his career at this point, as it seems more and more likely Pettitte will not return for a 17th major-league season. We are hardly the first ones to debate this, and I am certain we won't be the last, but it is, however, a great time to ask the question. Do you believe Andy Pettitte has done enough to deserve enshrinement into the Hall of Fame?
His resume is certainly impressive.
- A total of 240 career victories, including only one injury-shortened season in which he did not win at least 11 games.
- A career winning percentage of .635.
- A career ERA of 3.88, compiled during the steroid era.
- A post-season record of 19-10 (.655) with a 3.83 ERA.
- A pair of 21-win seasons.
