Mattingly was every bit the hitter Koufax was a pitcher.

how can you agrue that mattingly is a good of a player as koufax was?  where is your logic?

Don Mattingly had a good 5 year stretch as one of the Top 10 players in baseball and was the best 1B in baseball during that run.
And I too am a big fan of Mattingly, but we all get influenced regionally.
I don't think many in NY or LA would vote for Grace.  I know Mattingly's strongest backing is obviously in NY.  Jamie Moyer (good lord) even gets love in Philly.  It's the same with Dale Murphy here in ATL.  We can have these arguments all day.  I just don't know if any of these guys have the pure statistics to get in from the vote.  From the veterans committee, who knows.
Except Moyer.
