Talk:Dave Stieb

Page contents not supported in other languages.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Steib wrote a book called, "Someday I'll Be Perfect" or something like this back in the day. I can't find it online, anywhere! Does anybody have any ideas? It's actually called 'Tomorrow, I'll Be Perfect' with Kevin Boland. And his name is spelled Stieb. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lcorbyn (talkcontribs) 14:57, 1 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Removing POV[edit]

I've removed the following passage from the article: Given his accomplishments on the field, this must be attributable in part to the simple fact that the "baseball writers OF AMERICA" just didn't see him enough, playing home games in Toronto, Canada. Sadder still, this suggests the voting process weighs stats less than anecdotes and good memories of the writers; players that have not made lasting positive impressions on the writers, for whatever reason, may not get votes they otherwise should, regardless their on-field accomplishments (see Barry Bonds). Let's be fair, Stieb won 176 games over his career, far fewer than non Hall of Fame contemporaries like Jack Morris and Orel Hershiser. If Stieb gets in with that modest win total, does that mean David Wells (227 wins) Jamie Moyer (205 wins), Kevin Brown (211 wins), Bob Welch (205 wins) and Kenny Rogers (190 wins) are also hall-worthy? You'd be hard-pressed to find writers willing to vote any of the above-mentioned pitchers in. Even had Stieb played his career for the Dodgers or Yankees, his career numbers don't warrant Hall of Fame entry, regardless of the positive impressions he made during his career.

World Series Champion?[edit]

I see that there's a back and forth in the edits of this page on whether or not Dave Stieb is World Series Champion. It would be good to have some information here on the debate rather than just continuous edits. (At the time of writing this he is listed as a World Series Champion in his "Awards and accomplishments" but not in 'Career highlights and awards") What are the protocols on writing about on players who were on the rosters but injured for the finals? I look forward to hearing what others think. Thanks, Oangie (talk) 02:12, 28 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
