Brandon Crawford
« on: May 17, 2018, 10:32:16 am »
Hypothetically speaking, of course.. is Brandon Crawford a HOF shortstop?

Say he plays another 5 years and averages 10 HR and 75 RBI and .250 but knocks off 3 out of 5 or 4 of 5 Gold Glove awards. That would mean 7 in a row.. hypothetically..

He would finish with
.250 BA
136 HR
738 RBI
7 Gold Gloves
2 or 3 defensive player of the year awards
2 WS 'ships
And two silver sluggers..

He's no Ozzie Smith but.. does get get in?

I don't think the HOF committee puts as much weight on defensive stats as they do on offensive stats.   

I'd say no.  Also, because of what Steve said.

I think what hurts him the most is he has been around for 8 years and hasn't reached 1000 hits (849).  There are other shortstops in the HOF that have similar numbers but way more hits.  Ozzie, for example, had 2460.  The closest is Phil Rizzuto 1ith 1588.

The HOF is a popularity contest. Just the voting structure alone makes it one.

Player B probably played for the Astros and was on the juice.

IF Crawford can put together 6-7 more years of that sort of production, then he definitely deserves consideration. Omar Vizquel is in the Hall strictly for defensive skills, ao the precedent has already been set.

I think he starts to fall off in 3 years, though.

Then the answer is no. Kent sucked balls at defense. He also played for Doyer which makes him a scab.
