    Seriously, if he's not the best defensive CFer of all time (at his peak obviously) then the list in front of him is maybe one or two players long.

    to be fair I didn't realize he played for 13 seasons before his decline. Granted he still dropped off ridiculously but 13 years takes a normal player up until their about 36.. a reasonable age for the beginning of a decline.

    If he didn't hit a brick wall in the middle of his prime he would have easily been.


    But he slowed way down when he should have been improving. He was easily on his way when he was about 28ish.

    He really is one of the best defensive centerfielders of all time. I don't know about number 1, but certainly top 5

    Not even close. He played during an era of inflated numbers, and voters will take into account his precipitous decline.

    He was one of the few guys to perform poorly in his contract year. He would have gotten a huge contract too. He was great for a few years, but not long enough for him to get into the HOF.

    I'd say yes, but it's going to be close. He had some fantastic years and was always a very good defender. It's a shame he played the way he did in Los Angelas.

    Just based on his offense, no. But the dude was probably the best outfielder defensively in the league for ~10 straight years. I'd say that warrants a HOF nod.

    Maybe they should start a Hall of Very Good players. They could move many of the others like Rice into that one and leave the REAL HOF for the elite.
    Non elite players have been added all along. Fred Lindstrom? I mean really. AJ at least is borderline, even if you don't think he belongs, and he was vastly better than Jim Rice.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    He was on pace to be a Hall of Famer when he was in Atlanta, but I think he has fallen off too much to get in. He'll definitely get votes based off of 10 straight gold gloves. The issue is that his game completely fell apart the day he turned 30, which shouldn't happen to an elite player. If he had come into the league at 24 instead of 19, and had exactly the same career trajectory, with the drop off starting at 35, I think he'd be viewed very differently and we may not even be having this argument.

    When this subject, for any player, comes up what is it that we usually talk about? Has the player ever dominated at any point in his career and for how long? We usually throw out the stats, decide for ourselves and come up with a conclusion....

    Well, for about ten years, Andruw Jones was the best CF in the game. He played phenomenal defense and was a force in that Braves lineup. His career numbers can be looked at as HOF numbers. He is 100% a HOF'er in my eyes. It sucks to see whats happened to him now, he playing in Japan. If he was able to continue that production for about 4 more years, you could have possibly been talking Top 5 CF all-time (yeah I went there)

    It is sad this is even a question....if this was Trout in Jones' place, most of you would blow a gasket that this question was even brought up.

    I don't think he gets in, but he will hang around on the ballot for a long time. Probably all the years he is eligible. If he does get in it will be in a slow year and in one of his last years on the ballot.
