Commentary: Tim Raines Should Already Be In The Hall of Fame

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement... 

For the past several years I've watched in amazement as the Baseball Writers Association of America gets it wrong time and time again when it comes to Tim Raines



QUICK NOTES
  • Raines played in 2500 games and has 2600 hits, so average at least a hit a game
  • He got on base via a walk 1300 times, so if he's not getting a hit, he's getting on base, like a lead off hitter should
  • He stole over 800 bases, good luck seeing a modern day player coming anywhere close to that
  • In the last year he played, his OBS was .351, there are players in the game today who would kill to have a .351 OBS, his career OBS was .391
  • The arugment that he's the poor man's Ricky Henderson is idiotic, just because Ricky did more and played longer, should not be held against Raines.
