rWAR/600 PA or fWAR/600 PA and PA are the best indicators for HOF.
3.50 rWAR/600 PA | 11895 PA (HOF numbers)
5.99 rWAR/600 PA | 11163 PA (HOF numbers)
8.76 rWAR/600 PA | 774 PA (HOF projection)
Aight, lemme end this with a KO right now:
Ryne Sandberg: 9282 PA | 4.05 fWAR/600 | 4.2 rWAR/600 PA
Chase Utley: 5128 PA | 6.32 fWAR/600 PA | 6.26 rWAR/600 PA
Utley has 1/2 as many PAs right now...thats definitely whats hurting his HOF hopes, but he has been clearly more valuable than Sandberg in his career. If he can get another 2000 PA (3 full seasons) of 4.5+ WAR rate, then he >>> Sandbage
