I love Mussina when he was with the O's I guess he wanted that ring which he never got. My vote is for Moyer.

Moyer never goes. Not close. Mussina is a borderline call, and will be years before he gets in.

Here's the betting pool I have with my Pinstripes Daughter-in-law: who goes to the Hall of Fame first --

Jamie Moyer (269-209, 4.25 ERA, 2441 Ks, 696 games, Two 20-win seasons, one World Series ring, never played for the Yankees)

or

Mike Mussina (270-153, 3.68 ERA. One twenty win season on the last day of his career, no World Series ring, but 8 year with the Yankeeeeeees.)

My take away is this, Moyer was a workhorse who played on a lot of bad teams through his career. A lot like Nolan Ryan, just without out the knee buckling fastball. Mussina was a delicate priss who couldn't win the big one and always had defenders whining about "lack of run support" -- every pitcher who loses has a lack of run support.

My answer is: Mussina will go first ballot, Moyer probably never. But that will only be because Moyer never pitched for the Yankeeeeeees.
