Canseco had a good career, but he's not close to McGwire.

ops+
163 to 131

rc/27
8.16 to 6.23

Don't be fooled by Canseco's 200 career sb, he was caught 88 times (69.4%), which isn't good.

Perhaps the most telling stat is in 17 years, Canseco played 135 games only 5 times, and even more incredible, only had 2 seasons where he created 100 runs.

Rice, Dawson and Mattingly would get in before him. Dale Murphy should before Grace.

If Grace gets in then Will the Thrill should get in.



If Donnie gets in, I could die happy.

Mattingly in the HoF would be the biggest pile of dung since Mazeroski got in.
