isn't he in already??

I agree with many of the aforementioned, especially Jack Morris and Dale Murphy in the "modern era" and many of the old-timers.

More than 500 2B's, 1250 RBI's, 2200 Hits. More career walks than SO's (1283 to 1202). A career BA of .312 and career OPS of .933 ...

He also played his entire 18 year career for a single team. The award for his position is named after him. He was also a pretty decent 3B before a series of unfortunate injuries took away his lateral mobility. If you look at off the field stuff (like the BBWAA does in a negative light for Shoeless Joe and Pete Rose), he is a shining light of humanitarian efforts and noblesse oblige.

Edgar Martinez. If a closer can be in the HOF, so can a DH.

His trophy case, highlighted by seven Cy Young awards, two World Series trophies, one league MVP honor and 11 All-Star appearances—earned through true talent and love for baseball.

He achieved both the 300-win and 4,000-strikeout milestones in the same game in 2003 and finally retired in 2004.

He's currently third all time in career strikeouts and ninth all time in career wins—one behind Greg Maddux's 355.

Thats why you should vote for Roger!

Pete Rose

Despite all he did wrong, he did a lot right before it went downhill. He is still the all time hits leader and was just an incredible player to watch. Who else would end another player's career in an All Star Game?

Pete rose. He is banned for something he did after his retirement from playing. He should only be banned for making the hall as a coach. He did nothing wrong to affect his playing performance.

Bernie Williams, one of the greatest Yankees of all time. An athlete who truly new how to play the game, great offense and superb defense in the outfield. One of the classiest guys out there who had a great career and never needed to use any "help" while playing the greatest sport in history.
We have such sights to show you

Jeff Bagwell, because he was a class act and a great baseball player, although he did use PEDs.

Default he belongs in the hall

My vote would be for a 19th century pitcher, "Parisian" Bob Caruthers, who in a short 9 season career, has the 160th most innings pitched in MLB history. He won 40 games in a season twice, with a career record of 218-99 playing with the St. Louis Browns, Brooklyn Bridegrooms, St. Louis Browns, Chicago Colts & Cincinnati Reds. Careers stats: 123 ERA+, 1.15 WHIP, 2.83 ERA. He also had over 2,900 plate appearances with a career .282/.391/.400, 152 SB. In 1886 he won 30 games & led the league in OBP, OPS and OPS+. His career winning percentage was the highest of any pitcher prior to 1950 with at least 250 decisions. He was a member of the winning 1886 WS team.

from his wikipedia page:
During his career Caruthers threw 298 career complete games among his 310 starts, including 24 shutouts, and had a career ERA of 2.83 in 2828⅔ innings pitched. He also batted .282 lifetime with 29 home runs and 359 RBI. He was the only 19th-century pitcher to lead the league in winning percentage three times.
Caruthers is often considered one of the most deserving candidates for the Baseball Hall of Fame. Many sources recognize him as having compiled 218 wins and 99 losses, making his .688 winning percentage third all-time behind only Whitey Ford, and Dave Foutz (his teammate for eight seasons) among pitchers with at least 200 major league decisions. However, that is based on a total of 10 losses in the 1892 season (his last as a pitcher), a total revised from the contemporary record; the official league records for that year, which are recognized by Major League Baseball, charged him with only 8 losses, a figure which some other sources also recognize. The reduction of two losses would increase his career winning percentage to .691, placing him behind only Spud Chandler who compiled a record of .717 over 150 decisions.

Glad I am not the only one, Pete Rose. Look at his hitting records and career as a whole. Has it ever been proven that he THREW a game he bet on? NO IT HAS NOT! Put him in!

Vada Pinson.

He could cover more area in the outfield than any other player, not to mention he was an incredible hitter.

I'd have to say Minnie Minoso. Like many of the other Negro League players much of his career was lost to time. He was a spectacular Outfielder who played in in the MLB when he was 50, on a comeback tour.
MLB stats:
Batting average: .298
Home runs: 186
Runs batted in: 1,023
On base percent: .389
Slugging percent: .459
OPS: 848
9X All Star w/ 3 Gold Gloves

And to top it off he played in 5 different decades of baseball 40, 50, 60, 70, 80's.
I would say he has to be given serious consideration.

Barry Bonds

Only player in history to have 400 hr & 400 sb and that was before he supposedly went on steroids (accomplished at age 32, 1997). Started hitting a lot of hrs in 2000 when he hit 49 and then 73 the year after that (2001). He could have possibly reached 500 hr and 500 sb even without steroids.

Pete Rose. For the simple fact that he is the hit king. 4,256 all time on the hits list. How can he not be in the game. When he played he was always a 110% give it your all to win.

Edgar Martinez. He is the one players that you think of when it comes to the DH position. He was easily the best DH of all time. Spending all 18 years of his career with the Mariners, Martinez was a model of consistency. With .312 career average and 2 batting titles, Edgar definitely deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.

Hello Blowout Cards -

Randy Johnson belongs in the hall of fame next. He was one of the best pitchers of all-time. Let's not mark him as just a left-handed flamethrower, he delivered performances that will stand the test of time. In the day and age when chicks dug the long ball, myself and my compadres were digging on strikeouts. Johnson won 303 games during his career with five Cy Young Award trophies (nearly a 6th at the age of 40). Also he helped deliver to Arizona the only professional sports championship the region has ever seen. The dessert has been in a drought ever since. The 2001 world series also helped spawn the ever-catchy phrase "9 yanks can't beat a Johnson".

And the clincher is that he is the only pitcher in history to hunt and pitch in a professional baseball game at the same time. The ironic thing is that the poor bird was seeking shade/shelter from the awful/sizzling Arizona heat, but got scorched by RJ's heater.

Randy Johnson: Standing Tall and Talented. The real STAT (apologies to Amarie Stoudemire).

Default THE700LEVEL/Tim Raines

Tim Raines would be my choice growing up in the 80's he killed the Phillies many times. Problem was he was stuck in Montreal for a big chunk of his career.

I truly believe that "Shoeless" Joe Jackson needs to be in the Hall of Fame. You can not ignore his career over an incident that he was clearly not involved in. I don't think anybody can look at his stats for the series and believe that he had anything to do with the Blacksox scandal. It is sad that a player of his caliber will never get the recognition that he deserves. Thanks for the contest.

Pete Rose:

One of the best hitters of all time. The hall of fame should be for the best baseball players not the most well behaved.
