Larry Walker is a high-end Hall of Fame candidate. But not everyone seems to have figured that out yet.
Fred McGriff was a really good baseball player. But he’s yet to be recognized as belonging among the elite. McGriff is in his final year of eligibility on the Baseball Hall of Fame ballot. He received 22 percent support in his first year. He received 23 percent last year. He’s not close to the 75 percent needed for election. But perhaps he should be.
This should be the year that Mariners third baseman Edgar Martinez makes the Baseball Hall of Fame.
