Who said that Brian Kenny, Jay Jaffe, etc. have the option of ignoring character as a Hall of Fame criteria?

Hall of Fame: how about a deduction for every induction? Stop diluting by adding to the bottom.

Hall of Fame: Blyleven, now maybe Mussina? Is it so?

If Mike Mussina is a Hall of Famer, why not Kevin Brown?

Mike Mussina for the Hall of Fame? OK but just don't shout it.
