Poz - The Museum of Nice Players

The best players by position that Poz considers to have no HoF support.

You will notice that all my Museum of the Nice Player inductees are from the last 40 years or so. I think this is because before 1960, many of the Nice Player candidates have been elected to the real Hall of Fame. Bill Mazeroski would have been a good choice, but he’s in Cooperstown (and, to be fair, he probably had too much Hall of Fame support from fans anyway).

MLB commish on Pete Rose’s Hall eligibility: ‘It’s a conversation I’m expecting to have’

After 25 years of ineligibility, Pete Rose could see his name on the Baseball Hall of Fame ballot in the near future.

MLB’s new commissioner Rob Manfred might be willing to open the the door for possible reinstatement of Rose, who was banned from baseball in 1989.

“I have heard from his lawyer, and I do anticipate having a conversation about that,” Manfred told ESPN Radio on Thursday.

Delgado deserved far better in HOF voting

Carlos Delgado is the best player in history to get booted off the Hall of Fame ballot after his first year.

There are some excellent contenders for that honor, too: Lou Whitaker, David Cone, Andres Galarraga, Kevin Brown, Kenny Lofton, etc. But it’s incredible to think that a guy couldn’t make it to even a second ballot after doing all this:
