Hall of Fame pitchers within reach.

1. Stan Coveleski 65.2....strong hofer
2. Bob Feller 65.2...easy hofer, obviously would have been better if not for WWII. Feller did claim that the war probably saved his arm though.
3. Mickey Welch 63.8.....strong hofer
4. Ed Walsh 63.2......strong hofer
5. Dennis Eckersley 62.5.....gets alot of help from being a starter. still he's a good hof player.
6. Dazzy Vance 62.5......strong hofer
7. Juan Marichal 61.9......strong hofer
8. Don Drysdale 61.2...strong hofer
9. Rube Wadell 61.0......strong hofer
10. Joe McGinnity 60.4....some think he's a bit overrated but he's a strong hofer.
11. Hal Newhouser 60.4....gets picked on due to pitching in a watered down league during WWII but stats show the leagues really weren't watered down as some may think. Strong hofer
12. Clark Griffith 57.7....19th century guy
13. Eppa Rixey 56. 8.....he's a bit weak
14. Red Ruffing 55.4...another weak pick (Yankee pitcher.
.......................................
Mark Buehrle 54.1

Alot of these guys especially Marichal and Drysdale had great peaks and declined sharply or had thier careers cut short to various reasons. Mark Buehrle never had a great peak but he's at least stayed consistent. Maybe slow and steady will get him in.
