    No Logo for Maddux

    Maddux will not have a logo on his plaque when he enters the Hall of Fame because he had such a big impact with multiple teams.

    Did the Hall of Fame get this right? Seems obvious to me it should have been the Braves.

    Curious to see everyones thoughts on this.

    I find myself disappointed they didn't pick the Braves. 3 of his Cy Youngs and all of his team success came in a Braves uniform. While I understand the reasoning I can't help but be a little upset over the decision

    Also a question for those who know more about this than me. Is it the Hall of Fame's choice or Maddux's?

    It was his choice not to enter with a logo, not the HOF's ...

    If you read his reasoning as to why he went this route, I'm sure you would understand his logic ...

    90% of the people who read his name in the HOF will think Braves, him not wanting to have a logo is fine with me. He did split time with both teams, started with one and did great with one. No beefs from me.

    I call ******** on this decision:

    Maddux as a Brave: 3 CYs, 10 GGs, 2526.2 IP, 2.63 ERA, 383 BB, 152 HR, 66 WAR
    Maddux as a Cub: 1 CY, 6 GGs, 2016 IP, 3.61 ERA, 547 BB, 160 HR, 33.8 WAR

    10 seasons with the Cubs where his rookie season he pitched 31 innings and pitched 136.1 innings before being traded in 2006. 510 more innings in Atlanta, too (I find them to be more important than IP). I think it's obvious he should go in as a Brave.

    It doesn't really bother me. I'm just glad he was apart of the Braves organization for that long.

    Obviously he was better as a Brave, but the HOF asked Maddux which logo he wanted in his plate and he choose to go in the Hall with no logo and I'm pretty sure the amount of innings he pitched with the Cubs was the reason, he respects and is thankful of the Cubs organization and didn't want to upset them and I'm cool about it.

    You forgot the most important thing:

    Braves: 1 World Championship, 3 World Series
    Cubs: zilch

    he owes the braves fan base nothing... he gave us 12 some odd years of pure domination and ton of memories. he has earned the right to do whatever the hell he wants with his bust. if someone has some misguided sense of entitlement over this, break into cooperstown and graffiti an 'A' on his head.

    I'm still shocked over the fact that he was proud to be a Cub. Considering how he never shows up to Braves' functions, I am assuming he has something against management and/or the franchise.

    The Cubs gave him the initial opportunity. He loved his time there too. Big deal. He's the greatest pitcher we'll ever have, he led the way through our reign of the 90's in the NL, so I don't care.
