Default Tommy John vs. Bert Blyleven

Curious if anyone has any idea why Blyleven gets in the Hall and John doesn't. John had more wins, a better winning pct., about the same ERA, and more 20 win seasons ( 4 or 5 to 1). Blyleven has the lead in shutouts but John's 30 plus is very good. Blyleven pitched for World Series winners in 79 and 87 but John also pitched for a couple World Series teams with he Dodgers. I just don't see why John gets little support but there was a huge sabermetric movement trying to get Blyleven in there.
