MLB Hall of Fame 2011: A Starting Lineup of Snubs Who Deserve Enshrinement

On Sunday, the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York finally inducted two all-time greats, Bert Blyleven and Roberto Alomar. 

Alomar of course, only had to wait one year. That was one year too many though for one of the game's top five all-time second basemen, and all because of some loose saliva.

Blyleven waited 14 years despite ranking fifth all-time in strikeouts, 27th in wins, 14th in innings pitched, ninth in shutouts, and 13th in Wins Above Replacement (WAR) for pitchers. Almost every single objective measurement of Blyleven's abilities showed him as one of the top 10-20 pitchers of all-time.
