My Colin Cowherd rant

Yes, I know he is a mediot, so I shouldn’t be getting worked up. But I am anyway. On his radio show today he ignorantly declared Mike Mussina is not close to being a HOF’er and said Garvey was a no-doubter.

Reasons against Mussina- he nibbled, never won a lot of games, was not an ace, and didn’t throw hard.

Reasons for Garvey- he was overshadowed by Ron Cey but was good and won the MVP.

Wow, just wow.

Please, stop being ignorant, Colin.

WINS AND LOSSES ARE MEANINGLESS! THEY WERE CREATED IN THE 1860’S WHEN IT COULD BE USEFUL BECAUSE PITCHER’S OFTEN THREW COMPLETE GAMES!

Now pitchers are given full credit for a game when as starters they have around a 1/3 impact on the game. C’mon!

Mussina: 7.11 K/9, 1.98 BB/9, 0.95 HR/9, and the kicker- an 85.6 WAR.

Schilling (who Cowherd compared Mussina to) : 8.60 K/9, 1.96 BB/9, 0.96 HR/9 and 86.1 WAR

Hmmm.

And please, don’t complain about the stats, Colin. Just because YOU think it’s nerdy, that doesn’t take away the legitimacy of them. Mussina is a HOF’er, as well as Schilling.

Remember, Mussina DID throw hard. Back on the Orioles. Just because he threw 90 when he was old, it means how he pitched in his 20’s doesn’t count?

Garvey is not a HOF’er. I’m not going to spend time on this one.

Too bad he won’t read this.
