Again,
Why would you think it?
I made a statement about two comparable players in mlb
Why not have a good debate?

And I'd bet my house you've never called a man you did not already know an idiot to his face
Again, I never called you it. I thought it when you said, "Didn't need numbers."

What's the point of debating someone that just knows something regardless of the evidence?

Wrong thread

I dont need numbers
if someone asks me if i think an eligible player is a HOF
and I have to think about it
He's probably not a HOF

Exactly.

Correct.   If you have to explain to me why a guy should be in the HOF, he's not HOF material.

That said, there's a difference between the "Everybody gets a participation ribbon" faction and the "I only want the best of the best in the HOF" people.

Yikes.

It's funny.   I follow baseball.   Maybe not as much as I used to but I know the best teams and the best players.  If a guy plays for 15-20 years and someone has to say "This is why he's a future HOF", I'm not buying it.   I missed the guy for 15 years?  Seriously?   How can anyone believe that?

Maybe you just aren't very good at evaluating baseball players.

heck
most of us probably aren't good at evaluating talent
but if any of us bother to comment on this post, we probably watch a ton of baseball and care about it passionately
otherwise, why would we bother with these posts?

evaluating talent is one thing

knowing a HOF when we see him is another animal all together. and frankly, ain't all that hard

Nope. It's ****** circular reasoning: "Anyone who I say isn't a hall of famer, isn't. Any evidence that I'm wrong is actually evidence that I'm right."

Team is playing well overall, but their offense still disappears for massive stretches at a time. 23 innings without scoring a run - yikes. Hard to believe they're 18-8 in their last 26 with no sign of anything from Davis or Cruz. If they show up, and we get late-2013 Ubaldo, I might feel a bit better about this team's chances in the playoffs, but they've got a very big mountain to climb.
