DateQuestionAnswer
2011-11-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)In terms of guys who were unlikely HOFers at age 29 - Ozzie Smith had a 72 OPS+ before age 29, although he was still winning GGs and playing plenty. But Hoyt Wilhelm hadn't played in the majors before he was 29, he turned 30 during in his first season.
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
Good point, particularly on Wilhelm! (Jay Jaffe)
2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sure, I stink now, but my 2004 was one of the best seasons by a reliever in baseball history. Eat it, Hoyt Wilhelm.
(Brad Lidge from Philadelphia, PA)
And for that Lidge should get a free drink in any bar in Houston for the rest of his life. It doesn't absolve the Phillies of the responsibility to move on. (Steven Goldman)
