Careful. One must consider era, ballparks, injury, peak, longevity, and defensive support before dismissing these guys as poor HoF choices.

Of this list, only 3.67 and 3.64 would I truly consider 'questionable' Hall of Famers. The rest I feel can be justified.

I'm not saying they're poor HOF choices, just that they're the ones with the highest ERAs.

Wow, four guys who were mainly on great Yankee teams and it will be five if Pettitte gets in. It pays to be a good pitcher on multiple championship teams. I'm a Yankee fan but I'm not sure any of them get in if they were on average teams.

agreed howard38. Hoyt was just ok. Gomez was....well, he had a very solid 126 ERA+ and had some very good seasons, but he only pitched 11 full seasons and retired at 34; his outstanding record got him in. Wynn had 300 wins. really, Hunter didn't have a real long career; ERA+ of just 105. Actually, except for the 5 straight years he won 20, he was an average pitcher, ERA wise.
