    Andruw Jones fell into the Edmonds trap. There is absolutely zero reason he shouldn't be inducted with Chipper this year. Instead he's going to fall off the Ballot his first year.
    I hope wizard of oz doesnít mean Ozzie Smith. Omar Vizquel is one of if not the best overall non power hitting shortstop to ever play the game. And if Ozzie Smith is in he is automatic. The Hoffman statement makes no sense especially with no player on his team as you said stated. He is most definitely I hall of famer and if he is not in your opinion then he is not because of specialized position. Which means Edgar is NO WAY a hall of famer. You do know before Marino Hoffman was the leader in saves and although he really is borderline the point of the argument was about Edgar. You canít have your cake and eat it to. Edgar yes Hoffman no. Ozzie yes Omar no.

    You may need to do some more research.

    I am strictly AGAINST Ortiz as a hall of famer. Thatís a joke as well. I would vote Edgar if big Papi. But probably most people wouldnít because of home runs. I Loved Edgar as I am a tony gwynn fan but he just doesnít fit the bill while not playing the field. So your stats make sense although not needed do to the fact I would NEVER do Ortiz is a hall
    Of famer but that did just give me more amo on my final opinion that Edgar will never get in. Thereís more bites taken from him when Ortiz up.

    Greatest? Ken Griffey. Etc etc. HOF ANDREW Jones. If
    We put Andrew Jones in the HOF then it needs to close. Thatís not even an argument in this conversation.

    There are currently over *one hundred* players in the HOF with a career WAR lower than ANDRUW Jones 62.9 (including Jackie Robinson, Sandy Koufax, Harmon Killebrew) and since 50+ WAR is considered the HOF eligible mark, him making the HOF would be far from a reason to shut the HOF doors. Much as in the case with Ozzie Smith, his defense alone is enough to put him in the conversation.

    I'm assuming he meant greatest defensive center fielder, not greatest among all positions and he would be accurate if that was what he intended to say, as Andurw Jones is the all-time defensive WAR leader among outfielders. He ranks 20th among all positions. Ozzie Smith is of course, first.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    It seems everyone is ranked against the elite of the elite nowadays. If you were not Willie Mays level, you don't deserve it. if you are not Babe Ruth reincarnated, you are out.

    There will always be snubs that deserve to be enshrined and there are always going to be a small percentage of players who should be in but are never considered strong enough candidates due to sentence one above!

And lastly, some voters act as if their vote grants a player immortality, it's a building, for fans, they have to get over themselves....done

    The war and 20-50 years ago means nothing. Andrew jones is NOT A HALL OF FAMER. Iíd give you 100-1 odds on that I was that strong on Mattingly and was right. Mattingly was was second favorite player growing up and dominated baseball for 5 years but his back blew out and people that that was enough, clearly it wasnít.

    If Andrew Jones is a hall of famer
    So is mark lemke. I mean come on.

    Good luck.

    That's really cool. I was hoping these 2 could go in together. Then they would get to retell the story of them getting into a fight with each other during a minor league game. It's a great story, and now they can go in the HOF together laughing about it.

    Do y'all expect a bump in prices for chipper, vlad and Thome once all the ballots are counted?

    What baseball have you been watching?
    Edgar Martinez - 65.5 career fWAR in 8,672 career PAs

    David Ortiz - 50.7 career fWAR in 10,091 career PAs

    Career Slash lines:
    Edgar - .312/.418/.515
    Ortiz - .286/.380/.552

    Career wRC+:
    Edgar 147
    Ortiz 140

    Papi hit for a little more power in a bandbox in a more offensive era better than Martinez did in the Kingdome and Safeco where home runs went to die. In every other facet of hitting Martinez was much better than Ortiz and it shows when using park adjusted stats. It isn't even close.

    Ortiz will get in because of his personality and the postseason stuff when Martinez was a much superior player.

    I feel like Chipper would get the least of the three mentioned. I think his induction was a forgone conclusion comparatively. He is more identifiable to a large fan base but heís also the least likable of the three so that evens that out in my mind. Always interesting to watch and find out either way
