Forgive my ignorance, but what's ERA+?

ERA adjusted for the ballpark the game is being played in, as well as the average ERA in the league that year. An ERA+ of 100 is average. The first part is necessary to compare players even in the same year, and the second part is necessary to compare players from years with different offensive climates.

One of the reasons I love baseball more than other sports is that it lends itself to statistics like no other.

Would it really surprise you if he didn't hit the 300 mark, though?

Mussina doesn't go first ballot, but eventually goes.

FWIW, according to his stats at baseball-reference.com (baseball-reference.com), his stats are considered good enough to get in, if you go by the HOF standards and monitor. That said, I agree with a lot of the others: he shouldn't get in before Blyelven or Morris. Heck, I don't think he should get in before guys like Tommy John or Jim Kaat, who I think had a much bigger impact on the game.

I'm more impressed by Izzy becoming like the 30th guy (give or take a couple) since 1900 to strike out the side on 9 pitches. When he's on, he's filthy and impossible to hit. Unfortunately for the Cards, the easly inferred corollary is also true...
