    I didn't realize Edmonds was a second baseman.

    The answer is yes, this one is easy.

    If Lou Whitaker ain't in, Robinson Cano ain't in ... yet.

    No. If Sandberg is in, so should Whitaker. Cano and Alomar are better comparisons. Cano is not a HOF defensive player, but his overall game, should he continue on his trajectory, make him a worthy HOF.

    Until Raines is in, the Hall is a fraud

    Robinson Cano is not a Hall of Famer.

    Because he's very good. I guess I'm basing what I said on what I think will be his continued slide in Seattle.

    If he's great for the first 9 years but decent to pedestrian for 5 years after that, is that Hall worthy?

    And I get he was top 5 MVP candidate last year.

    He'll likely retire as the best 2B of his generation.

    Continued slide? No doubt that will start at some point but I don't see it yet.
