Curt Schilling - Hall of Fame or Not?

Curt Schilling may be done...YES!!!...as a Yankees fans, I hate Schilling with a passion...even though I despise the guy, that does not jade my view of him as a pitcher...Schilling was one of the best pitchers of his era...he was a better big game pitcher than Roger Clemens...he was a tough guy...but he is not a Hall of Famer...

On Baseball Tonight, Peter Gammons brought up the question if Schilling would make the Hall...Gammons never gave his thoughts on the topic...Schilling racked up some impressive numbers over the years...however, in my opinion, they are not Hall of Fame worthy...if Schilling should make the Hall, that would open the doors for many quality pitchers such as David Wells, David Cone, Jack Morris, Orel Hershiser, and Ron Guidry among others...let's take a look at their numbers...

Curt Schilling
216-146
3 time 20-game winner
6 All-Star Games
3 World Series titles
10-2 in post-season
1993 NLCS MVP
2001 World Series co-MVP

David Wells

239-157

1 time 20-game winner
3 All-Star Games
3 World Series titles
1998 ALCS MVP
1 Perfect Game

David Cone

194-126
2 time 20-game winner
5 All-Star Games
5 World Series titles
1 Cy Young

1 Perfect Game

Jack Morris

254-186
3 time 20-game winner
5 All-Star Games
3 World Series titles
6-1 post-season
1 No-hitter

Orel Hershiser

204-150

1 time 20-game winner
3 All-Star Games
1 World Series title
1988 NLCS MVP
1988 World Series MVP
1 Cy Young
59 consecutive scoreless innings

Ron Guidry

170-91
3 time 20-game winner
4 All-Star Games
2 World Series titles
1 Cy Young
25-3 mark in 1978

So when perusing the above stats, although impressive as Schilling's numbers are, there are other pitchers who are just as impressive who will never make Cooperstown...so my advice to Schilling is to head back to Arizona, keep working on his blog, and shove that bloody sock where the sun does not shine...
