    Definitely a tougher position but Keith is the best defensive first baseman ever? Also an mvp 2x champ 5x all star batting title etc. like I said fine with rolen in he does have 10 more WAR than Keith fwiw

    I'm somewhat surprised that Murphy and Mattingly didn't get more support. Both were considered the best players at their position for several years. Neither played on a winning team often, so they didn't get a chance to show what they could do in the post-season.
    According to Baseball Reference, Murphy has all the stats he needs to get in. 6 seasons above 5 WAR. 7 year peak 41.2 as opposed to 44.7 for the average Hall of Famer.
    Mattingly had a great 4 years, but injuries got in his way. Had he stayed healthy, he would have been in the Hall.
