Awesome for both, even more for Moose, as he had to wait, but I have been pulling for him to get in for a long time, just a great career for both

Its funny for years I didn't think he was a hof the more I looked at his numbers the more I came around he deserves it.
For a long time I was blinded by 2004 ALCS Game 5. He was good but not great that game and the Yankees needed a GOAT start by him to avoid games 6 and 7. But the arguments that he pitched his entire career in the AL East in the height of the steroid era swayed me.

Outdualing Pedro is a great game, the bullpen F'ed that up. Up 4-2 going into the 8th against the best offense in the league, cannot ask much more than that.

More so than Mussina. For every Game 1 1996 WS stinkbomb he has a corresponding Game 5 1996 WS gem.

Needed 4-0. Torre's penchant for burning out favorite middle relief arms burned them. The corpse of Tom Gordon gave up run #3 and left Mo bases loaded and nobody out. They got a sac fly to tie it up, not mad at Mo for that.

I still can't believe they allowed it. I can't imagine George would have never allowed it.
It will now be a ‘coveted’ # for a can’t miss prospect so he get it retired with 1-10.

of all people I though you would be convinced that in a few years, and after 3 more rings, Yankee's Otto will get it retired for him.
