The Hall of Fame picks the hat, and have since 2001. They consider the player's input, but a committee makes the ultimate selection.
(If anyone were to archive and stow all of your posts with asinine, likely to be wrong predictions, they'd run out of disk space in a week.)
with that said, his best years (statistically speaking) were with the O's. since he never won the CY award and was never on a WS champion, his stat's will be a determining factor. but the hall will also look at the team for which he had the biggest impact. he lead the O's to the post season in 97 & 98. they don't get there w/o him. NY was already a fixture in the post season. they would have made it without him.
Edit * 96 & 97

Ron Guidry, three 20 win seasons (including a 25-3), a Cy Young (and a 2nd and a 3rd), two World Series wins, never got more than 8.8% of the vote.
Will Mussina make it to the Hall? Maybe. If he does, he'll probably squeak in with 75.1% or so.
Also remember Mussina pitched a lot of his career in the "steroid era".
Just imagine how much better his stats would have been.
I think it's a stretch to think that he could have been juicing. He could have but I doubt it. His name has never come up at all anywhere, in any publication that i've ever read.
All the players you guys have mentioned have been speculated or proven to be guilty by sources that have been made public.To my knowledge Mussina never has by anyone.
Maybe he was just that good.
