I don't really have any analysis to provide, but here's a compilation of the careers of some Hall of Fame candidates I've been discussing on Twitter with @jasoncollette, @tommy_bennett, @Marc_Normandin, @jonahkeri, and others.
Quick summary: I'm not as sold on Rock Raines as some others (who might be a bit homerish), I like Edgar more than most, Albert Belle deserved more consideration, Jeff Bagwell should be a lock, Larry Walker is confusing for everyone, and Jason Collette sticks his fingers in his ears when people point out that Fred McGriff isn't Hall of Fame worthy.
Based on all that, here's a convoluted WAR graph based on baseballprojection.com data. (Click for a huge version.)
McGriff is obviously better than Baines and Galarraga, falls in Belle's ballpark (depending how you value quality vs. quantity), and is worse than the rest -- we probably need some more comparisons for him.
Walker holds his own and appears to very much be Raines' equal. (Rally's stats really like his baserunning and fielding skills in addition to the big bat.)
Albert Belle certainly was a stud, but his peak is definitely too short for serious consideration, and I'm saying that as someone who ignores longevity more than most.
What do you notice? Feel free to add any bits of information you think support or damn a player's candidacy in the comments. Or links to good articles others have written on these topics. Or suggest other players worth throwing in the discussion.
