Biggio Poll

Postby crip » Sat Jun 12, 2004 3:26 pm

Ok, there has been some debate on whether Craig Biggio is HAll of Fame material...I personally feel that although he has very fine numbers...he just doesn't have the overall makeup of a hall of famer.

He has 215 lifetime HRs

He has 960 RBI

And a lifetime .285 average

He has 2580 hits

What do u guys think?

I think it's really close. Obviously, if he had been an OF his entire career those numbers wouldn't hold up, but they stack up against other 2bs. And remember, he was also a catcher for 3 seasons (he was an all-star at C in 91). 4 time GG at 2b, 7 time all-star. I definitely think there's a case.

I have to admit I'm biased because he went to Seton Hall, where I graduated from, and was born in Smithtown, NY, were I was born and raised. ;-)

He is deff HoF bound. Completely disregarding his amazing D, his all star game appearences, and his class as a player, his 2500+ hits, and the fact that he is climbing on the career doubles list is well enough.

Him and Baggy completely re-wrote the stros record book.

Ah yes, Seton Hall in South Orange, NJ. My dad went there. I've spent a lot of time in that little town.

I wouldn't vote him in. He's a solid player, but the Hall is for people who are well beyond solid.

I've already stated I believe he will make it in at some point, although probably not a first ballot guy. His numbers are better than several 2B already in the Hall, and better than one who is moving closer (Sandberg). He has accumulated enough accomplishments that give him advantage over players who were "on the edge" players who never made it in (Trammell, Whitaker, and Garvey except for Steve's MVPs). He played his entire career for one team which the Hall loves, never had any serious character issues and played the game at a high level for a long time.

I can't see him making it. The hall of fame is for superstars with mammoth numbers and dominant years. Biggio was a good player for a long time but good isn't great and great isn't even enough. To make the hall you have to be one of the elite players in the game consistently. Biggio was good but he was never one of the elite. He never hit more than 22 home runs in a season, hit 20-22 home runs only 5 times, never hit more than 88 rbis in a season, has only a career batting average of .287. I understand a lot of people think his runs, steals and defense make him hall worthy but IMO it just lets him get mentioned. Longetivity is great but I just believe that 20 good years dont equal 14 elite ones especially when overall power numbers leave him way back in the dust. Just my opinion.
