Love Kitty's attitude. Tied with Brooks Robinson for the second most Gold Gloves ever. That alone should get him into the HoF - the Wizard sure didn't get in on his hitting and he only had 13. Nor is there anything HoF about Brooks' hitting. Throw in a career pitching record that's nearly identical to Blyleven's and it should be a no brainer.

One more thing about Kaat that won't get him into the Hall, but he's got to be right up there as one of the best hitting pitchers - and he had some pop in his bat too.

I hate to be contrarian, but I'm not really seeing what about Santo's stats make him a HOFer?
