Vote: 50 Best Players Not in the Hall of Fame

Dec 2, 2012 by Adam Darowski

It’s December! So, that means it’s Hall of Fame season. But it also means that it’s time to vote in Graham Womack’s 50 Best Players Not in the Hall of Fame poll.

I voted—and here’s my Top 50 (in alphabetical order):

That’s it! make sure you head over the Graham’s site and cast your own ballot!

Note: As you can see in the comments below, I originally had Tommy John on my list with the comment “Before the surgery: 28.5 pitching WAR. After the surgery: 28.4 pitching WAR. The surgery was 99.65% effective.” I ended up replacing him with Darrell Evans. Graham’s ballot also asked you to vote whether or not a player should be in the Hall of Fame. I answered mostly “yes”, but I did vote “no” for Evans, Sammy Sosa, Dave Stieb, Bobby Bonds, Kevin Appier, Jim Wynn, Sherry Magee, Eddie Cicotte, and Gene Tenace. These players have Hall Ratings below the Hall of Fame median, so they really wouldn’t raise the bar. Tenace was the toughest “no” vote for me.
