But who the **** looked a guy with a career 148-121 record, 4.61 ERA, and 1.491 WHIP and was like, GIVE THIS MAN A PLAQUE?
I call these "buddy" votes. They know the guy isn't getting in, but they throw a guy they like a vote just for the hell of it. It doesn't bother me, but the Hall should just get the actual ballot down to guys where it makes sense to avoid this.
