Yes for me. Drysdale was extremely highly regarded by his peers. He started four all-star games. He had a relatively short 14 year career and left the game after his age 32 season. His ERA+ was a verygood 121 amd he won a CYA. Ten years of double-digit RSAA. Well known for his fierce nature he led the league in hit batsmen 5 times and finished in the Top 5 another 5 times. He didn't take many prisoners. Generally considered one of the weaker HoFers, though not necessarily a mistake.
"I hated to bat against (Don) Drysdale. After he hit you he'd come around, look at the bruise on your arm and say, 'Do you want me to sign it?' " - Mickey Mantle
