Current HOF Pitchers....Unit, Clemens...Appier?
Kevin Appier for the Hall?
While WiredTiger started a thread recently on David Wells' chances for the Hall, I got to thinking about who among current pitchers should be considered, but has been overlooked. Top of the parade is Kevin Appier.
Appier, from 1992-97, was a dominant pitcher. His quality was largely hidden by the offensive explosion and the fierce mediocrity of his team, the KC Royals. Now, after coming back from arm injury, he no longer has ace stuff, but is a capable #3 pitcher.
His career record is 161-127, in spite of pitching mostly for lousy teams. The Angels got a steal by unloading Mo Vaughn on the Mets to get him. And it was cool to see him get a ring last fall. But, when all is said and done, he won't be elected to Cooperstown.
And that's a shame.
