Hall of Fame S19

ARod ......we've got a couple of no brainers here guys.  Lets get these guys into the H O F!!

1) SP Johnny Vernon :  It don't get no easier than this.   4-time World Series Champ; 6-time All-Star; 4-time Cy Young award winner; S1 Rookie of the Year; 163 wins with a career 3.03 ERA and 1.15 WHIP.  Johnny Vernon was one of the most dominate pitchers in early years of ARod.  His best season was S2 and his number were flat out ridiculous!!!  Vernon went 24-2 with a 1.88 ERA a 0.96 WHIP and he held hitters to a .192 batting avg.  Unbelievable!!!

2) SP Marvin Punto: actually did just get easier.  Wow!!  Just when you think you've seen it all with a guy like Vernon, then up steps his battery mate on the legendary Big Thunder squads, Marvin "Big Pitch" Punto.  5-time World Series Champ; 9-time All-Star; 3-time Cy Young award winner; 202 wins, 58 shutouts with a 3.10 ERA and 1.14 WHIP   .  If there has ever been a more dominant pitcher in ARod, I don't know who it is (my apologize to Dan Stuart, Jack Redmond and Albie Villiano).  Punto was unreal in the first 9 years of this world with 58 shutouts, an avg of 245 innings and 20 win's per year.  Punto's best season was S6 when he went 25-4 with 13 shutouts; he threw 251 innings, had 217 K's with a 2.44 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP.  Shit...

3) 1B Alfredo Sosa :   Alfredo "Big Show" Sosa was one of the true monster mashers of the ARod world.  Sosa never won a World Series but was a 6-time All-Star, S5 AL MVP, S3 Rookie of the Year; 4-time Silver Slugger and we certainly know where he got his nickname by winning the All-Star Breaks Home Run Derby twice.  Sosa finished his illustrious career with 718 Home Runs (#3 all-time), 1869 RBI (#5 all-time), 1552 runs and an impressive .315 batting avg and a 1.036 OPS.  Sosa's best season was his MVP season when he hit .343, slugged 69 bombs, raked in 189 RBI's, scored 134 runs and collected the only 200 hit season of his career.  The Big Show should be HOF-bound no doubt.

4) LF Bill Malone :  Bill "Willie"Malone be finished soon...
