DateQuestionAnswer
2011-11-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Watching Jose Bautista become a superstar at 29 got me wondering - which players in the HoF were the most unlikely to have been considered worthy at that age?
(dtwhite from Toronto)
That's a very good question ripe for a January column. Offhand, I'd say Dazzy Vance (0-4, 4.91 ERA) is the heavyweight champion - he didn't win his first game until age 31. Phil Niekro had 31 wins at that point in his career, too. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-11-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why is Dazzy Vance in the hall anyways? Superb Peak Value? Where does he rank amongst SPs?
(Guillermo from Montevideo, Uruguay)
Vance was well ahead of his time when it came to strikeouts - he led the NL for seven straight seasons, tripling the league rate at times. Couple that with a couple seasons leading in wins and ERA - all of this during a high-offense era - and you've got a valuable pitcher. JAWS has him 32nd out of 58 - a bit below on peak, far short on career, but given his late start and his dominance, hardly the worst guy in the Hall. Plus he went by DAZZY, which is an awesome name. (Jay Jaffe)
