Kuenster: A Vote For The Hall Of Fame

For new age baseball fans, Halladay’s career 65.5 WAR is tied for 41stall-time with Bob Feller and is ahead of notable mounds men Clayton Kershaw (62.1), Juan Marichal (61.9), Whitey Ford (53.5), Sandy Koufax (53.2), and Max Scherzer (52.9).

His 61.2 WAR reading is higher than other Hall of Fame first basemen Harmon Killebrew (60.4), Hank Greenberg (57.6), Bill Terry (54.2), Tony Perez (54.0), George Sisler (54.0), and Orlando Cepeda (50.2) among others.

His overall WAR of 72.7 is higher than Derek Jeter (72.4) and Hall of Fame members Ernie Banks (67.5), Johnny Mize (70.9), Alan Trammell (70.7), Duke Snider (66.3), Andre Dawson (64.8), Barry Larkin (70.4), Dave Winfield (64.2), Tim Raines (69.4), Tony Gwynn (69.2), and Jackie Robinson (61.4) among others.

The WAR has been won. But at what cost?
