I know that doesn't make a ton of sense to some people but I think it will be a factor among the people casting ballots. They'll look at him, consider him worthy (if not necessarily a first ballot guy) and then take into account the team he played for (and who threw to him during those years) and then give him the nod. Call it the sympathy vote if you want but that will put him first ballot.
Good points.
