    Hall of very good. If he gets 3000 he is in. If he is close he may sneek in.

    There's no way he gets to 3,000 hits. His career OPS+ is 96. His career WAR is 46. In the last seven seasons, he has been above 2.6 WAR once.

    He won't get in. Doesn't deserve it. But I think he ends up in the territory Jeff Kent has inhabited since joining the ballot. If you wanna back a Phillie infielder, send it Utley's way.

    Bobby Grich played 17 seasons. He won four Gold Gloves and appeared in six All-Star games.

    He had a career OPS-plus of 125, higher than Troy Tulowitzki (122), Barry Larkin (116), Roberto Alomar (116), Derek Jeter (115), Ryne Sandberg (114), Craig Biggio (112), and Cal Ripken (112), and in line with Robinson Cano's 126.

    He had a career WAR of 70.9.

    Ragu, my advice, after years of observation: Every time you are ready to make what you think is a brilliant Hall of Fame-related quip: Don't.
