2007 Red Sox - Didn't have Pedro like you listed, but still had Schilling, Manny, and Papi
Obviously not saying he's a lock - anything such as injuries can happen - but he does seem to be on the right trajectory.
“And with Jack, people had to see the way he pitched to win. And when you get in the postseason, he was the best there was.”
Thomas will go in first ballot. Second ballot in a worst-case scenario.
Kirk Gibson won championships with Jack Morris and Orel Hershiser as his team's aces. Does Kirk really think that Hershiser wasn't as good as Morris?
For a team that won a World Series relatively recently, they're awfully forgettable for me.
[...] And 23 starts from Julian Tavarez.
As others have suggested, it's unheard of to hit as well through age 29 as Cabrera has and not make the Hall of Fame: the only remotely relevant example is Sherry Magee, who played over 100 years ago and is in the HOM, anyway
Cabrera never should have driven in those runners in front of him.
Yeah, he just made it to ten years, too. He has done everything a person needs for the BBWAA standards aside from longevity pretty much. MVP, Triple Crown, and a ring. Locked.
Worst-case scenario, nobody goes into the Hall of Fame in the next ten years except Greg Maddux and people born over 130 years ago.
So who's the best MLB player ever who didn't have some personality issues (from what we know)?
Gehrig and Mathewson are the two names that jump at me.
1. There have been some really, really good first basemen in the last two decades. Even with that being stated, it's not yet clear that Cabrera won't make the top 5 in the group.
Yeah, everybody knows that batting average and slugging and home runs never won no ballgames! And driving in all those runners? That's just rude!
