All-Snub Team

Last week, I brought you the One-and-Done All Stars. Let's look at Hall of Fame snubs, strickly by WAR. What would a starting lineup look like?

  • Catcher: Joe Torre (55.6)
  • First Base: Jeff Bagwell (79.9)
  • Second Base: Lou Whitaker (69.7)
  • Third Base: Ron Santo (66.4)
  • Shortstop: Bill Dahlen (75.9)
  • Left Field: Tim Raines (64.6)
  • Center Field: Jimmy Wynn (59.8)
  • Right Field: Larry Walker (67.3)
  • Designated Hitter: Edgar Martinez (67.2)

I see a lot of names from the current ballot (Bagwell, Raines, Walker, Martinez). Who ranks after those guys at each position? Well, behind Bagwell is Pete Rose, Rafael Palmeiro, and Mark McGwire. Down at #5 we have Dick Allen. Behind Raines is Shoeless Joe. After Joe is Sherry Magee. After Walker is Reggie Smith. Behind Edgar Martinez at DH is Brian Downing.

All of this, to me, says we're being more strict about Hall of Fame induction than ever.
