Curt Schilling
80.7 Career WAR, 216 wins, 3116 strikeouts, 3.46 ERA, 3.23 FIP, 127 ERA+

Curt Schilling may be controversial off the field, but there is no doubt that he belongs in the Hall of Fame, and it’s not even close. Besides the regular season numbers, he was also a historically great post-season pitcher. His numbers are among the best in the game, with more than 3100 strikeouts and a WAR better than Don Sutton, Jim Palmer and John Smoltz, among others. In October, Schilling shined brightest. In 133.1 post-season innings, he posted an 11-2 record in 19 starts with a 2.23 ERA, 120 strikeouts and 0.968 WHIP.
