Hello all! Great entries thus far and because I am a Reds fan I should say Pete Rose but my vote is going to go for a player I grew up watching. I know some people may not agree with me but I am going to say Rafael Palmeiro! He is victim of the steroid era and has a proven record of steroid use with a 50 game suspension but still his numbers were pretty good 3020 H, 569 HR, 1835 RBI and .288 Career AVG. 4 Time All Star 2 Time Silver Slugger and 2 Time Gold Glove, and 10 Times in the Top 20 MVP voting.

Pete Rose for sure! He was one of the best hitters of all time, and a baseball legend. If he can have his own trading card set twice, he should be in the hall of fame!

Jack Morris-Forget Game 7 WS Magic, most wins in the 80s. Did he stick around too long? Perhaps. However, he dominated for a 10 year period and should be in the hall of fame.

Biased but let me throw my hat in for Keith Hernandez:

1. Played first base defense on a level of Maz. 11 time gold glover.
2. Hit almost .300 in a 17 year season.
3. 5 time all star.
4. 1979 MVP and top 5 MVP in two other seasons.

Plus, he's just that damn cool
Topps Lifetime project status:87, 88, 90 traded and 2016 Topps series 1 done. Currently doing these 3:

Mike Mussina. He should have more wins but played on a lot of bad teams and never got much run support.

Maury Wills

Here's why...He revolutionized the art of base-stealing. Guys like Brock, Rose, Henderson, would not be relevant without Wills. Stole 104 bases in 1962. No one was close to stealing that many in a season, Brock was the next person to 100 with 118 in 1974.. Led the league 6 years in a row from '60-'65. Lifetime .281 hitter. 7 time all star, 3 time World Series Champion, MVP winner.

Maury Wills NEEDS to be in the Hall!

While there are many deserving players, especially those in the Negro Leagues, the player I choose is Don Mattingly.

Mattingly seems to be on the cusp of the HOF every year, yet every year he ends up short. Among his best attributes was his consistency; considered to be one of the top 3 hitters in the 80's and 90's, overshadowed only by Boggs and Gwynn, Mattingly's glove also outperformed both of them. A career .307 hitter with over 2100 hits, Mattingly also displayed exceptional abilities in the field, amassing 9 Gold Gloves over his 13 year career, and had a .996 fielding percentage. Topping off hsi resume filled with consistent excellence, Mattingly was awarded baseball's MVP award in 1985, and twice won The Sporting News' Player of the Year Award (1985-86).

Default Jeff Bagwell ....sooner than later

The best and simplest argument in favor of Bagwell, are like most Hall of Famers, found in his numbers. In 15 major league seasons, he played in 2,150 games, hitting .297 with 449 home runs and 1,529 RBI. Bagwell’s stats also include 2,314 base hits, 488 doubles, 202 stolen bases, 1,401 walks, and .948 OPS.

Bagwell’s numbers are even more impressive when placed into historical context. His 79.9 WAR (Wins Above Replacement) is good for 37th all-time amongst position players and 57th among all players. He also places high all time in OPB (22nd), home runs (35th), RBI (46th), walks (28th), runs created (37th with 1,788), and extra base hits (41st with 969).

Offensive numbers are not the only highlights on Bagwell’s Hall of Fame resume, as he was also an excellent fielder. His 2,111 games at first base represent the 10th highest total of all time. Additionally, he ranks highly in other defensive categories like putouts (25th) and assists (2nd), while only committing 129 total errors, good for a .993 career fielding percentage.

Joe Jackson has to be the one:
hit .408 as a rookie..WHAT. .356 Lifetime BA (3rd ALL TIME) One of the most talented Players ever to play the game.

Only struck out 158 times in almost 5,000 At Bats. 3% strike out rate amazing. thats 1 strike out per 32 at bats

Tony Gwynn HOF member 9,288 AB 434 SO 1 every 21.2 AB 4.7% SO rate. thats Tony Gwynn the guy hit everything...

I could keep going but I'll keep it short

Garvey because of the numbers he put up during the 70's, for being a key part of that Dodger team and for being the ladies man he was!

I would have to agree with a few others and say that "Shoeless" Joe Jackson deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. An iconic baseball player who paved the path for greatness in outfielders at the beginning of the modern era of baseball. He still holds the all-time third-highest career batting average and was debatably one of the greatest hitters in baseball history. The man hit .408 in 1911 for gosh sales. The main spent his entire post-baseball life proclaiming and maintaining his innocence in being involved with the great and infamous Black Sox scandal of 1919, and was acquitted by the jury in the subsequent trial. Yet the powers that be never forgave Jackson, and his legacy as a cheater continues to this day. Baseball scandal aside, the man was one of the greates ball players to ever play the game and in my eyes, should absolutely be memorialized and given and nice shiny plaque in Cooperstown so that his friends, family, fans and the generations to come remember him for the wonderful things he did for the sport, and not for the unproven wrongdoing he was accused of over 100 years ago.

Default Jeff Bagwell

If there is anyone currently not in the Hall of Fame that deserves to be enshrined, it has to be former Houston Astros slugger Jeff Bagwell. Why do you ask? Well take a look at his numbers compared to some other current Hall of Fame first baseman and see for yourself:

Player GP Hits HR RBI AVG. WAR
George Sisler 2055 2812 102 1175 .340 51.1
Jimmy Foxx 2317 2646 534 1922 .325 92.5
Hank Greenberg 1394 1628 331 1271 .313 55.1
Johnny Mize 1884 2011 359 1337 .312 67.8
Tony Perez 2777 2732 379 1652 .279 50.1
Jeff Bagwell 2150 2314 449 1529 .297 76.7

Notice that Bagwell is comparable to each of the other HOF sluggers in virtually every category (aside from Foxx’s extremely high WAR). It is understandable that the HOF voters are choosing to wait a couple of years to elect Bagwell into the Hall; however, he should be enshired no later than 2015 due to his fantastic career, which is comparable to other HOF first baseman.

Smoky Joe Wood - while his career was cut short by injury, he excelled as a pitcher, later as an outfielder and then as a coach at Yale University. Here are some highlights of his career:

World Series champion: 1912, 1915, 1920
American League ERA champion: 1915
American League wins champion: 1912
2 20-win seasons
1 30-win season
3 sub-2.00 ERA seasons

He also compiled one of the greatest seasons of all time:

Record: 34-5
ERA: 1.91
Complete Games: 35
Shutouts: 10
Innings pitched: 344
Strikeouts: 258

His career ERA (2.03) is 5th best in baseball history. Had he not slipped and broke his thumb in 1913, we could be talking about the greatest pitcher in baseball history. What could have been!

Joe Jackson of course, Babe Ruth saw him hit and copied him! Joe could also throw one of those dead balls 450 feet. He was also innocent of the gambling mess in the World Series.

Instead of going with one of the popular players, I am going to go with my favorite player. I am saying Mark Grace should be in the HOF (or at least still on the ballot).

over 2400 hits
over 500 doubles
over 1100 runs scored
over 1000 bbs
career .303 BA
career .383 OBP
batted over .300 in 9 of his 16 career seasons
4x Gold Glove Winner
3x All-Star
Hit for the cycle

I know his power totals aren't flashy for a first basemen, but I think if he was playing now in the age of advanced statistics he would be much more appreciated than he was.

My vote is for Chili Davis. I don't have any stats to back it up, but his name is Chili, and he once asked me to help him pitch during a clinic.

Default 3000 hits / 500 Home Runs

Rafael Palmeiro... Lifetime slash line of .288/.371/.515... one of four players with 3000 hits and 500 HR (other 3 are in the Hall- Aaron/Mays/Murray)... 3 time Gold Glove, 2 Time Silver Slugger, 4 time all star... 10th all time in Total bases, 6th all time in Extra Base Hits... 1600+ runs, 1800+ RBI... and what might be my favorite statistic... walked 5 more times in his career than he struck out (1353BB/1348K)...

Sure he juiced, but can it be any worse than players in the 60's taking amphetamines?
