I still don’t have a photo of Estes, but I do have one of Volquez, whom I saw pitch against the Portland Beavers last summer in Oklahoma City on my way to Cooperstown. If I’d known he’d be leading the National League in ERA right now, I probably would have mentioned this fact at the time…
#150@parlo: Well, voters get to vote for 10 players every season. Not all of them do, but quite a few of them do.
I still think “could” be a veterans selection is way off. That’s 15 years of no election for a career that dwarfs Bruce Sutter.
But we disagree. So we’re probably done with this.
#151@Kevin: It took Gossage 14 or 15 years.
#152@parlo: True. I don’t trust the voters to do the right thing.
