Hall of Stats: The Interactive 2014 Hall of Fame Ballot

This is my fourth year creating the Interactive Hall of Fame ballot—a ballot with “bullseye” visualizations of every player on the ballot. You can drag the visuals around to compare players to each other.

The outer ring represents Wins Above Replacement (WAR, or an approximate measure of the player’s career value) while the inner ring represents Wins Above Average (WAA, or an approximate measure of the player’s peak value).

This is some cool stuff.
A great way to take a quick look at the candidates.

I don't see a way to apply a steroids factor there, which is the most important factor in this now-silly charade.

The same site has an article on Hall Ratings with Multiple Franchises, claiming Bonds was a Hall of Famer even before he left Pittsburgh.

Schilling > Mussina > Glavine. The voters will have Glavine > Schilling > Mussina.
