Best K/BB ratio in the ME, lowest % of total runs allowed that were unearned all time. ERA underates him.
If total K's are a feather in your cap for HOM consideration, so should be K/BB ratio, IMHO. His low KK/B ratio was a result of his
"throw strike one, stoopid" approach to working a batter, which led to an economy of pitches, which led to an increase in his ability to eat innings, which led
to more team wins, no?
Mitch Williams then comes on and says he's not a HOFer and you can only judge him by his regular season stats...then cites....JACK MORRIS????? Click.

It was a horrible example of stooping to the intelligence level of your audience to try to force a correct outcome. Strikeouts, shutouts, and wins are not why we should be electing Hall of Fame pitchers.
Also, assuming you believe Schilling and Biggio to be of equal value, doesn't the tie breaker go to the pitcher?
Why would it?
I'd guess because there's stronger agreement on the proper assignment of value and responsibility for the offensive component of the game.
doesn't the tie breaker go to the pitcher?
Then wouldn't the tie go to the batter?
So say Biggio gets the tiebreaker. Do people think it is close enough that this applies, even with the Schilling out-WAR-ing Biggio across the board and ranking in a higher percentile for his position?
