"Biggio joins 24 other 3,000-hit players in the Hall. Save for Pete Rose (who is serving a lifetime suspension for betting on baseball and is not eligible for the Hall of Fame), Rafael Palmeiro (who was once suspended for performance-enhancing drugs and is no longer on the ballot) and Derek Jeter (who retired this past season with 3,465 hits and is eligible for the Hall in 2020), Biggio was the only player with 3,000 or more hits who had not been elected."I am surprised that Jeff Bagwell, Curt Schilling and Mike Mussina were so far down the list.
Bagwell played almost of his career in the Astrodome, a very tough place to hit home runs. He still hit over 400 of them.
Mussina and Schilling won 200 games. And Schilling was tough in the postseason, specially that game 6 effort against the Yankees in the 2004 ALCS.
Congratulations to Biggio!
