HOF? or Cough?
« on: October 23, 2020, 07:51:09 PM »
Since a bunch of guys are voting each season, I was wondering if anyone wanted to step out from behind the anonymity of the secret ballot to offer an argument against some of the greatest position players of all time....

The 3 best catchers of all time have barely cracked 50% of the votes, and all deserve to be there...
Ranks amongst catchers:
Piazza - #1 in WAR, batting avg, HR, RBI; #2 in runs; #3 in slugging, hits, doubles, walks, games.
Snodgrass - #1 in OBP, runs, walks, doubles; #2 in WAR, hits, ABs; #3 in batting avg
Munson - #1 in hits; #2 in batting avg, doubles, triples; #3 in WAR, runs, SBs

Plus, Piazza ranks in the top 10 amongst ALL batters in batting avg and WAR, Snodgrass is in the top 10 in OBP, walks and doubles.

Similar arguments can be made for Travis Fryman and George Brett
Fryman is the all-time leader in WAR at SS (plus holds a crap-load of personal awards), and Brett was the all-time leader in several categories at the time of his retirement.

So what gives?

I vote for 20 guys, so unless you are dreadful on a full ballot, you get Houston approved!

It's a travesty that Fryman and Brett are off the ballot this year...

Beltre is #1 in most offensive categories for 3B... we'll see if he gets in.

And don't forget the catchers!

Wasn't Fernando Valenzuela not being a unanimous pick a bigger controversy?
