Hall Of Fame - Pitchers

Current HOF'rs

1 - Rob Branson - OPS allowed of .632 over 15 Seasons, while league average was .786 over same period - .154 better than average
2. Jay Burnitz - OPS allowed of .714 over his 20 seasons, while the average  pitcher was .778 over the same period - .64 better than average
3. John Fikac - OPS allowed of .689 over his 17 seasons, while average pitcher was .783 over the same period - .94 better than average
Average SP HOF'r - OPS allowed of 1.04 OPS allowed better than average
4. Wilfredo Veras - OPS allowed of .659 over his 20 seasons, while average pitcher was .768 over the same period - .109 better than average

I have argued in previous posts, for SP's, that 1.00 OPS better than average is a no doubt Hall of Famer. Anything less must take other factors into consideration.
