You guys forgot the obvious example of the long career, (almost) no peak player. Tommy John. 26 years, 62.3 rWAR, 12.7 WARP. He peaked at 31.7% of the ballot in his final year of eligibility. He will be on the ballot for the veteran's committee in 2 years, if I am not mistaken.

Yeah, not a bad example, although he obviously had more impressive high points than our hypothetical guy--a handful of five-win seasons (according to B-Ref), two second-place Cy Young finishes, etc.
