BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-01-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Raines' vote total is a shame.
(Joe Lefkowitz from NJ)
Well, 36 percent is a marked improvement, and there is now an even greater precedent for people with lower voting percentages on the fourth ballot getting in: Bruce Sutter, Duke Snider and Byleven all had less than 30 percent of the vote on their fourth ballots. His eventual election will depend upon the evolution of the voting body, but I think it will happen. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-01-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)How many players have ever been inducted into the Hall with as low of a vote percentage as Raines received today? Also, will we be waiting for Frank Thomas to be inducted for the DH position to be recognized by the Hall? Is Thomas looked at as a first ballot guy?
(Brian from Tinley)
In the question above, I meant 15 years on the ballot, not 20 - that's 20 years after the end of his career.

As for the question at hand, confining ourselves to the post 1965 annual balloting era, Duke Snider (17.0%), Don Derysdale (21.0%), Billy Williams (23.4%) and Bruce Sutter (23.9%) started out in bigger holes than Raines.

As for Frank Thomas, I do think Paul Molitor already scored some points on behalf of the DHs. Thomas, with 500+homers and a 400+ OBP, could well be a first-ballot guy. At 101.7 JAWS, he's about 12 points above the 1B benchmark. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-01-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)What about Trammell's prospects in the coming years? Is he gaining support in terms of vote percentage? Or is he falling back? Lynn Henning of the Detroit News had a column today on Trammell. Fourth-most hits of anyone while playing SS (behind Aparicio, O. Smith and Appling), and more HRs than the top 3 combined. You can't say that was due to the "long infield grass" at Tiger Stadium.
(Doug from San Francisco)
Trammell rose from 13.4 percent last year to 18.2 percent this year. The surge is working!

In reality, another year below 20 percent hurts him; he's not appreciably above his 2006 showing of 17.7 percent. He's just drained another year of his eligiblity (he's still got eight years left), given what I said above about the players lower than Raines who were elected - Duke Snider is the only one below Trammell's current level of support to rise. (Jay Jaffe)
