He didn't throw games etc etc.
To competitive for that.
He is also my favorite player ever to watch play baseball.
And the reason the Phillies won the WS in 1980.
Him not being in the HOF is like the Beatles not being in the rock and roll hall of fame.
Didn't throw games? Technically, no. In reality, yes.
As a manager, lets say he has a bet on today's game and no bet on tomorrow's game (or the reverse). Don't you think his piticher usage might affect his judgment depending on which game he bet his money?
You KNOW he was thinking about his bets as he made his changes.
