Heres mine. Again, This includes active players and players not yet eligible. I also decided to add the team theyd go in with, though I didnt exactly put a ton of thought in that part.

What's your case for keeping Palmeiro out? 569HR/3020H is pretty damn impressive and only one of four total people that are in the 500/3k club. Just curious if it has anything to do with his steroid suspension.

Same reason I kept Murray off the list, I think Raffy was consistently very good (and for a long time), but was never great.

No Ryne Sandberg, Luke Appling or Lou Brock? They at least deserve honorable mentions.

I don't respond to idiocy. Also I think Barry Larkin is a HOFer although I can see where CJ is coming from.. I'm just playing devil's advocate there. Larkin's main negative is he just didn't play a whole lot. He had a lot of shortened seasons. My main beef is the notion that Tim Raines is some slam dunk the writers are being stupid over.

I would be interested in seeing a positional breakdown as well... but that might not be feasible.

Added some names to the Honorable Mention, I had completely forgotten about Applling tbh.

He can only DH at this point and even then he probably can't hit enough. Another bust prospect.

Yeah it happens. Nobody could have foreseen Martinez's knees going the way they did at such a young age.

It's worth it for the Astros. He has another option and they are moving to the AL. I'm surprised the Mets gave up with an option left.

Here are the positional rankings for the 100 guys I put in my HOF Top 100 List. Feel free to tear it apart and crap on it as much as you want.

They had to clear room from the 40 and I guess they feel he's done. He's always hurt and hasn't ever hit much at AAA so I understand. I'm a little surprised they couldn't get anything in return though not that it matters either way.

No way I'd put Ozzie above Jeter and Cal. Also Sandy Koufax would be #1 on my lefties list. Just my two cents.

I'm really confused as to how Jim Thome makes it on your list but no Palmeiro. Thome hit over 38 homeruns only five times, and it was sporadic over the length of his career. Palmeiro had 9 straight seasons of 38 or more, while having more RBI, 800 more hits, their slugging and OPS hovered around the same area and Thome had an injury riddled career. I mean i can see your argument on why you wouldn't put Palmeiro in, but if he doesn't make the list, Thome sure as hell shouldn't either.

I could see his justification to Ozzie being so high because of his defense. Ozzie didn't change how the game was played, but was damn near a household name because of his glove-work.

I guess. He was just the guy who couldn't hit HRs and could do back flips to me when I was a kid. Obviously his amazing defense needs to be taken into account, its the only thing that got him into the HOF, but it can't make up for his pathetic offense when compared to Cal and Jeter.

Looks like the Rays are signing Luke Scott. If he can stay healthy it's a nice fit.

I mean i can see your argument on why you wouldn't put Palmeiro in, but if he doesn't make the list, Thome sure as hell shouldn't either.
I counted 7 seasons where Thome hit 38 or more homeruns (96,97,01-04,06) and he has more career homeruns in fewer games/AB's. Also, their slugging and OPS aren't as close as you're making them sound.

Thome: .277/.403/.556, .959 OPS, .406 wOBA
Palmeiro: .288/.371/.515, .885 OPS, .380 wOBA

Thome was a significantly better hitter. The only real advantages I can see for Palmeiro were defense and staying healthy.

I'd agree with the first part, but I'd take Randy Johnson as the top lefty. And Thome is a much better hitter than Palmeiro, come on now.
