Retiring consecutively over the last three years are The Rocket, Mad Dog, Big Unit: three of the most dominant pitchers of their generation, and arguably three of the best to ever take the hill. But baseball accolades post-career are more than what happened between the lines. Each are first-ballot locks for the HOF from my perspective, but Roger (certainly) and Randy (sort of) have baggage. Greg’s squeaky-clean, but who would take prime Greg over prime Rocket/Randy? Should each be a first-ballot lock regardless of circumstance? Would you be surprised if they make any of the three wait? Does that matter? If Clemens goes in AFTER Maddux and Johnson, does it mean anything at all?
