That does seem to be the bias. I personally like the idea of including the best players of their decade or their era, but that is just me. As for Martinez, are we sure his numbers are not jacked due t more »

If longevity is your criteria, then yes. 3,000 hits and 500 HRs and 250 wins makes sense. If being one of the best of your decade or era is the criteria, then Tiant, Oliva and Allen should at least more »

Actually, Oliva is a lifetime .300 hitter, which is exactly why I consider him a HOFer. I can see your argument for Dick Allen, if you ignore the fact that he has a lifetime OPS > .900. Both were li more »

Tiant belongs according to the Jaws, and my smell test. Dick Allen was one of the greatest hitters of his era...if he hadn't had such a personality disorder he would already be in the HOF, IMO. And more »

Forum Post: Hanley Ramirez Signing - Is this worse than Crawford?
Posted 11/25/2014 03:01:07 EST
Also, comparing Crawford to Hanley, Hanley is probably a DH in the making (or Sandoval is). Crawford was brought to Boston only as an OFer, on a team which really had no place for him if Ellsbury pro more »

The reason JBJ is probably going to still be a Red Sox in 2015 is because his trade value is so low. If another team insisted on Ben including him to seal a deal for a young starter, he'd likely be g more »

Oh, and giving up the 3 youngsters does nothing to alleviate the rule 5 draft dillema this winter, at all. Better to have traded some excesses they are going to lose anyway.
