Wrapping the HOF Discussion (Part Last)

After posting comments on some of those unworthy of additional HOF consideration – Hersheiser, Belle, Saberhagen, Canseco, Fernandez, Bichette, Davis and Bonilla – I have just a few quick thoughts on the balance of those receiving less than 5% of the media members votes – Caminiti, Buhner, Brosius, Joyner, White and Witt.

  • Caminiti ($38 million) Only Thought: ‘Roids. ❤ time AS, MVP>
  • Buhner: ($37 million) Thoughts:  Traded by Yanks for Ken Phelps; Have about 100 of his rookie cards – estimated total value $5.00. <1 time AS, hit 310 HRS>
  • Brosius: ($22 million)  Thoughts:  Sucked for a few years on A’s; went to Yanks and played OK; even made an AS team, ah the power of playing in NY; this bum made an AS team and Eric Chavez never has? <.257 career BA, 141 HRs>
  • Joyner: ($40 million)  Thoughts: Finished a very close second to Canseco in 1986 ROY balloting…career went downhill from there; never drove in 100 after second season.  <.289 career BA, 204 HRs>
  • White: ($37 million) Thoughts: Awesome defensive range; won seven Gold Gloves; three time AS <.257 BA, 208 HRs, 346 SBs>
  • Witt: ($21 million)  Thoughts: Hard throwing righty; part of Sierra for Canseco swap. <Career mark 142-157>

Hope you enjoyed the stroll down memory lane…That’s it for now…Dr. Dick
