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.

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.
