Posted by bad_luck on 8/7/2013 3:13:00 PM (view original):I also dismissed Rice and Dawson. Also, Dunn can't play the outfield. Wasn't Dawson a great CFer?
Posted by AlCheez on 8/7/2013 3:09:00 PM (view original):Yep. If it's so easy to dismiss Dunn's case then what the hell are Rice and Dawson doing in the hall.
Oh, so it was more of anti-Dawson and Rice thing than a pro-Dunn? I'm on board.
I'm not going to argue that Rice and/or Dawson should or shouldn't be in the HOF, but they really aren't close to good comparisons for Dunn... neither was nearly as bad in the field as Dunn, both have MVP's and multiple Top-5 MVP votes (as well as a littany of other Hardware... Dawson has EIGHT Gold Gloves) and both are certainly more FAMOUS than Dunn will ever be (it is the Hall of FAME)
EDIT: Looking at their pages a bit closer, I'll give you Rice as being very questionable (or really, beyond questionable), but The Hawk looks like a HOF'er to me, and from my memory of when he was playing, he fits the "Fame" part pretty well, also.
