Why on Earth would you say that?

Postseason statistics don't apply to the regular season awards (MVP, Cy Young, etc.), because those votes are taken prior to the beginning of the playoffs, but postseason performance absolutely applies to Hall of Fame merits, and I have no idea why anyone would think otherwise. Shit, a single postseason performance is the only case people make for Morris' candidacy.

In any event, even if it didn't, Schilling is clearly over the line based on his regular-season statistics alone.
Breathe in, breathe out...

Just asking for clarity. I'm not a walking baseball reference manual like you.

So Andy Pettite is in then.
