You seem to keep ignoring this key issue while claiming that no one is ignoring key issues.
Jeter's 199th hit just put NY up 1-0.
If you want to be considered a great team, you win in the playoffs. Thus has it ever been.
No one waxes poetic about the 1954 Indians.
But they do about the 1906 Cubs.
How much of that is "Tinker to Evers to Chance"?
MLB Premier League
The sense of absolute crushing dominance that team enjoyed was not really reproduced again, in my memory.
This is just a plank in Cabrera's "hit by a bus" argument.
Dick Allen, Cesar Cedeno, Vada Pinson, Bobby Bonds, Darryl Strawberry, all these guys were really great in their 20s, in a way quite similar to Cabrera, but then they didn't do enough in their 30s to earn induction. They're the outliers, and most guys like Cabrera get in, but these guys were all useful, productive ballplayers in their 30s (other than Strawberry). Their cases are improved by their numbers in their 30s. They're all ahead of Cabrera, and they all not in.
