Verducci said that PED users shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame. “Their behavior didn’t justify that kind of honor,” Verducci said.
Verducci also had interesting comments on yesterday’s Hall of Fame inductee Greg Maddux and why he was so dominant. Verducci said there hasn’t been a smarter pitcher and he’d get more hype if he was more of a strikeout pitcher.
Verducci weighed in on the trade deadline as well. He said that there will be action, but probably not big names. He said the one exception is Boston’s Jon Lester, but the Red Sox aren’t going to offer a discount — “the price is going to be really high.”
