The Hall of Fame Ballot to end all arguments

This Hall of Fame ballot, organized by category, perfectly encapsulates my thinking on the eligible players.  Really, I could probably avoid writing the three dozen Hall of Fame posts I plan on doing this winter simply by linking to this thing each time a guy’s name comes up.  I won’t, but I could.

Wezen-Ball does it again.  lar is awesome like that.

    I’m thinking Blyleven and Alomar get in. Bagwell will be an interesting one to watch.

    I’d say spot-on.

  3. yankees1996 - Dec 3, 2010 at 11:40 AM

    I tend to agree with Larkin, Alomar and Blyleven.

  4. Mark Armour - Dec 3, 2010 at 12:35 PM

    A pretty good ballot, though I would move Blyleven up to the “I will harm you” section

    I’m not sure about Larkin. Check this out:
    Player A: .295, 198 HR, 960 RBI, 370 SB, 2340 Hits, 3 Gold Gloves, 1 MVP
    Player B: .299, 130 HR, 781 RBI, 622 SB, 2428 Hits, 4 Gold Gloves
    Player C: .294, 170 HR, 980 RBI, 808 SB, 2605 Hits
    Player A is Larkin. Player B is Kenny Lofton. Player C is Tim Raines. Lofton and Raines aren’t getting in, so I wouldn’t put Larkin in either.

      Frankly, Lofton has a hell of a case. He’s not on the ballot yet, so we don’t have to fret about it.

      And Raines is one of the most woefully overlooked candidates. The fact that voters are snubbing him doesn’t mean they should be snubbing another deserving candidate as well.

        Its amazing how close the three guys are. I actually thought Larkin’s BA would be about 15 points higher and that he would have more home runs.

      Um, yeah. Larkin was a shortstop.
