I've already talked a little about this before on this site, but every once in awhile I catch myself looking at some old Edgar Martinez stats, and I get sad. He's pretty far from ever making the Hall of Fame it seems.
Great hitter. Didn't play defense, but was feared by most pitchers, and had some of the most monster seasons for a right handed hitter ever.
I honestly think if they had a vote for Edgar Martinez in the hall of fame, and only allowed players who pitched against him to vote... He'd probably get 85%+.
Great player, and actually a very quiet, humble, and nice person. Also arguably a top 5 right handed hitter over the last 35 years.
What do you guys think? Should he make it? Will he make it?
