Evans, yes. But only as he goes in as an Oriole. ;)

 

I don't see Whitaker or Munson as HOF-level players. Munson for sentimental reasons, maybe. But I suppose if Baines got in it's going to become the Hall of Very Good.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

By fWAR (68.1), Whitaker is ninth among second basemen, ahead of Craig Biggio and Roberto Alomar, both of whom have at least 400 more career PAs, and Ryne Sandburg, 700 PAs behind but also 7 WAR behind.

 

By bWAR (75.1), the only eligible (and not being kept out for valid or invalid reasons) player with more not in the Hall of Fame is Bill Dahlen, and he's almost 3 wins ahead of Derek Jeter, who is about to go in first-ballot.
