Will Scioscia be the Hall of Famer from the Angels championship team?

Kevin Appier has the best HOM case from that team.

I'd argue Tim Salmon, but neither are getting in.

Scioscia could be the only Hall of Famer for TWO World Series champions. The 1981 Dodgers and the 1984 Tigers are the only two World Series teams with full roster HOF eligibility and no Hall of Famers.

If Scioscia counts for the 2002 Angels, the 1981 Dodgers and 1984 Tigers each have a Hall of Famer.

81 Dodgers had about as great a long term infield you can have without a HOFer. 88 Dodgers seem like a more likely bunch, as they had many fewer HOVG than the 81 team. But Don Sutton was on the roster.

Glaus is one of only five players in history to have at least 300 career HR with fewer than 1000 RBI. The others are Richie Sexson, Jay Buhner, Jeromy Burnitz and Reggie Sanders.

Darryl Strawberry had 1000 RBI exactly.

Garret Anderson is 92nd all-time in career hits (2,529), currently between George Van Haltren and Heinie Manush. His chances in HoM elections is right with those other two. A stathead whipping boy for many years with his #1 player comp many years being Steve Garvey. At least he never went down the off-field path of Mr. Garvey...

I remember when I used to dream that Drew Henson would develop into '00 Troy Glaus. I loved Glaus as a kid. Would always trade for him on my baseball video games.

Remember when Glaus signed for 4/40 with the D backs in 2005 and it was panned as a terrible signing ?

Actually for the life of that contract he had a 123 OPS+ and averaged almost 4 WAR per season. (15.4 total, 3.9 per year)

Glaus is too young to be Hom eligible.

watching Anderson's bad attitude 2009 season in LF for the Braves was enough for me. How does a barely average career hitter as a corner outfielder even get in the discussion?
   13. Ziggy's screen name Posted: February 07, 2015 at 10:27 AM (#4894805)
To be fair, it was panned because everyone was worried about his health. Which was a fair concern for those with no access to the results of his physical.

Also, remember when $11m/year was a big deal?

He looked like he utterly despised everything about the game of baseball that season.
