BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-01-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)With the benefit of (marginal) hindsight, how big a mistake was the BBWAA snub of Will Clark? What do you think the chances of the VC (in whatever structure it holds in 17 years) will redress this omission? Thanks for answering.
(rawagman from Work)
I'll take this one and then one more...

I don't know that Clark was a huge mistake. My system now shows him at 105.2 career, 65.8 peak, 85.5 JAWS, where the HOF 1B benchmark is at 115.1/66.9/91.0 - it's risen because Clay Davenport's WARP tweaks have given 19th and early 20th century players like Cap Anson, Roger Connor and Dan Brouthers far more value than they had before, enough to wrestle the top spot from Lou Gehrig. I'm not entirely comfortable with those tweaks, but it would appear Clark is a borderline guy at best. He'll have a chance if the VC ever clears out the deadwood that's clogged up the past several ballots, but guys who retire at 36 don't get a whole lot of charity from the voters. (Jay Jaffe)
