Season 27 Hall of Fame Voter’s Guide

21 03 2013

This voter’s guide is just going to use the basic stats/awards on the main screen of the player cards – I understand that a lot more advanced metrics can/should be used, but this is for ease of comparison. The potential nominees will be broken down into three sections, I’m sure there will be disagreements (and some value different metrics more than others, such as defense), that’s why we vote! (I’ve chosen to not list positions here but break-up into hitters and pitchers). Overall comments and predictions at the bottom.

First Tier (really clearly deserve to get in unless extreme voter apathy or voter bias):

Hitters:
Wiki Armas – .323 avg, 3282 hits, 589 HR, 241 SB – 11 AS, 3 MVP
Hootie Stewart – 3000 hits, 753 HR – 6AS, 2 MVP

Pitchers:

None

Second Tier (definitely should be considered and get a competitive number of votes):

Hitters:

Miguel Matos – 2706 hits, 565 HR – 9AS
Chris Offerman – 2773 hits, 524 HR – 7AS
Mike Ponson – 3064 hits, 547 HR, 323 SB – 6AS
Steve Thomas – .307 avg, 2776 hits, 636 HR – 6AS, 2 MVP
Dan Johnson – 490 HR, 305 SB – 7AS, 1 MVP, 4 GG

Pitchers:

Sammy Bennett – 2.94 ERA, 519 SV – 8AS
Mark Chase – 3.26 ERA, 473 SV – 10AS
Sammy Malone – 3.31 ERA, 501 SV – 9AS
Dave Newhan – 3.55 ERA, 216 wins, 2218 SO – 8AS
Alex Villano – 2.90 ERA, 529 SV – 8AS
Morrie Keller – 2.82 ERA, 460 SV – 7AS

Third Tier (likely will get a few votes but never enough momentum to get in):

Hitters:

Harold Cannon – 2755 hits, 388 HR, 596 SB – 6 AS
Steve Dewitt – .304 avg, 530 HR – 3AS, 2MVP
Tony Hernandez – 2607 hits, 604 SB – 7AS, 2 GG
Glen Judd – 564 HR – 5AS
Kelly Payne – 2304 hits, 591 HR – 5AS
George Rollins – 2680 hits, 623 HR – 2AS
Ronnie Stewart – 2232 hits, 589 HR – 2AS

Pitchers:

None

Overall Comments – This group is really dominated by power hitters and relievers, really a surprisingly weak crop of starting pitchers. 500 HR alone just doesn’t make a player standout in this group, it will likely take a combination of big homers and 3000 (or close) hits plus a pile of postseason awards to get in amongst this group.

Prediction – Armas and Hootie Stewart get in, all these good relievers steal votes from one another keeping any from getting in, if voters unite perhaps one of Ponson/Matos/Thomas gets in, with Ponson the most likely.
