Pedro pitched a good game tonight, though in a losing effort. A talk show I was listening to today discussed whether Pedro and Schilling would be hall-of-famers. Curious, I checked baseballreference.com's ratings of the two in terms of hall of fame ratings, and threw Roger Clemens in as well.
For an explanation of ratings see
Black Ink - average HOF'er scores 40
Pedro 55 Schilling 42 Clemens 100
Gray Ink - average HOF'er scores 185
Pedro 215 Schilling 205 Clemens 314
Career Standards - likely HOF'er scores 100 or above
Pedro 202 Schilling 171 Clemens 332
Hall of Fame Monitor - likely HOF'er scores 50 or above
Pedro 60 Schilling 46 Clemens 73
The results bear out the opinions of the talk show hosts - Pedro should be in the hall for sure, and probably Schilling will be there as well. And Pedro did it without steroids and bloody socks!
