David Foss felt that a thread should be created so we can figure out what we need do about the wartime players.

I concur.

Hall of Merit: The Hall of Merit’s 2005 HOF Picks: Boggs, Blyleven, Sandberg, Gossage and Trammell!

With a total 28 ballots cast, we decided (following HOF ballot procedures) that Wade Boggs (unanimously!), Ryne Sandberg, Bert Blyleven, Rich “Goose” Gossage and Alan Trammell were more than qualified to be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame this week. Hopefully, the BBWAA will emulate our correct picks. :-)

Thanks for participating, guys!

There has been some talk about “Sure Shot” lately, so I thought a thread was in order.

Durability aside, there weren’t too many pitchers greater than him.

The question: can the Hall of Merit hold two pitchers with the proper name of Urban?
