I used a five-year window around his debut using HOF eligibility as a benchmark, but it sort of an arbitrary number--if you go one more year back to 1995, you get Rivera's debut, who doesn't have the WAR but does have a positional dominance that's unmatched, so a case could be made there. However, I just don't think anyone would consider them the same generation, even with how much their careers overlapped--Rivera already had 4 WS wins before Pujols debuted.

Lou Whitaker has a 75.1 career WAR and still can't sniff the hall. *sigh*

Trammel is already in right? It seems like the veterans committee would correct this oversight.

Did a quick search, and it looks like there are only 4 position player HOFers with a Black Ink score of 1, and I only recognize one of them as a player (Carlton Fisk) and one as a team owner (Charles Comiskey). Tough hill to climb.

I have absolutely no confidence in the group that elected Harold Baines coming in and fixing mistakes.

My dad was saying that the Rays game is blacked out in Tampa, even though they're playing in Miami? Absurd.
