    Didn't think about that angle but I guess the HOF clock would reset.

    From what I have read (not 100% sure, but what I've read) his clock wouldn't reset. You get 10 years on the ballot, don't necessarily need to be consecutive.

    Interesting.

    Let me add this then...he was knocked off I think In year 1, maybe 2.

    Would he get to go back on for 8 or 9 or whatever years??

    The way i understand it; I think? But maybe once you get knocked off, there's no way to get back on. His only hope I think is with the veterans committee or whatever they call it now

    If he can get into shape and the Orioles wanted to sell tickets in September when they are out of it then do it.
