And here is the last year of each of these guys career and I will note which players got voted in by the Veteran's Committee. You'll quickly see a trend
Rod Carew -1985 (3000 hits and .328 lifetime AVG and 1 MVP)
Eddie Collins - 1930 (3000 hits and .333 lifetime AVG and 1 MVP)
Bobby Doerr - VC vote
Johnny Evers - 1929 (but his career ended in 1917, 1 MVP)
Nellie Fox - VC vote
Frankie Frisch - 1937 (2880 hits, .316 lifetime AVG, 1 MVP)
Charlie Gehringer - 1942 (2839 hits, .320 lifetime AVG, 1 MVP)
Billy Herman - VC vote
Rogers Hornsby - 1937 (Just one of the all-time greats, 1500+ runs, 300+ HR, 2930 hits, 1500 + RBI, .358 lifetime AVG, 2 time MVP, finished in the top 3 of voting for MVP 4 times)
Nap Lajoie - 1916 (3242 hits, .338 life time AVG, 1500+ runs and RBI, 1 Triple Crown, led league in batting 5 times, played before MVP given)
Tony Lazzeri - VC Vote
Bill Mazeroski - VC vote
Bid McPhee - VC Vote
Joe Morgan - 1984 (1650 runs, 1100+RBI, 268 HR, 2500+ hits, nearly 700 SB, 2 MVPs, 5 Gold Gloves, and 2 World Series Rings)
Jackie Robinson - 1956 Only had half a career in MLB, but he did a little thing called "Breaking the Color Barrier." Let's face it, he could have finished his career with one hit and he's a HOFer. In 10 years, he had 947 runs, 1518 hits, 137 HR, 734 RBI, 197 SB, and .311 lifetime AVG. Oh yeah, 1 MVP.
Red Schoendienst - VC Vote
So after removing our VC 2B, our list is Jackie Robinson, Joe Morgan, Nap LAjoie, Rogers Hornsby, Charlie Gehringer, Frank Frisch, Johnny Evers, Eddie Collins and Rod Carew. Looking at sheer numbers we have to remove Robinson for the sake of comparison due to his shortened career.
The first thing everyone has on this list is at least 1 MVP (save LaJoie).
Second, everyone has a lifetime AVG of over .300 except for Morgan. Then again, Morgan won 2 World Series and was MVP twice.
Third, nearly everyone is at or above 3000 hits.
Fourth, Only two 2B have been elected to the HOF since 1937 (excluding Jackie Robinson, all respect given). They are Rod Carew and Joe Morgan. As aforementioned, Morgan has 2 MVPs, 2 World Series rings, and better numbers than Biggio. Carew won an MVP and has a AVG of .328.
Biggio has no MVPs. In fact he's never finished in the top 3 in voting in his career. He's never won a World Series. His lifetime AVG is only .287 and he only has 210 career HR. In today's "juicied" environment those aren't HOF numbers.
Any more arguments for Biggio I can dispatch?
It's easy, fun, and 100% safe!
