DateQuestionAnswer
2008-05-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, if you could kick 5 players out of the Hall of Fame, who would they be?
(oira61 from san francisco)
Wow, now this is a superpower I would love to have.

Working on merit rather than subjective dislike or the silliness of being the wrong brother on the day the VC members didn't have their hearing aids turned up (as Rick Ferrell or Lloyd Waner apparently were), I'd focus on the guys who are furthest below the JAWS averages at their positions: Tommy McCarthy -65.8 in the OF, Johnny Evers -45.4 at 2B, Chick Hafey -43.6 at CF, George Kelly -42.8 at 1B, and Fred Lindstrom at -40.8. Jess Haines (-44.7) and Rube Marquard (-41.0) would qualify among the pitchers, but I could stick with ousting those hitters and be happy.

Though something tells me I should set aside a waiver to oust Jim Rice when he's elected next year. (Jay Jaffe)
