First off, i'm a Ryan Sandberg fan. Seemed like a decent guy. But being a Tiger fan, and with Sandy going into the Hall, it got me to wondering.

Why not Trammell or Whitaker?

Neither will go in. But if you look at both players stats, there on par with Sandbergs.

Look at the grey ink test because I think that's the most telling stat to separate Sandberg from the Tigers' duo. Sandberg scores a 134 while Trammel and Whitaker are both under fifty. While they compare well with similarity scores, I think that Trammel and Whitaker are both comparable to Sandberg, but lesser players.

Sandberg was basically the best second baseman of the eighties and early ninties and he won an MVP. Trammel and Whitaker weren't the best at their position and never won MVPs. Sanberg won nine gold gloves and the other two combined for seven.

In my opinion, Whitaker and Trammel were just pretty good for a long time whereas Sandberg was a class above them. Sandberg's numbers are a little bit better and he played fewer seasons. There have been worse selections than Trammel and Whitaker (actually, quite a few), but I don't see any pressing need to have them in there at this point.

Valid points.

I don't really think Sweet Lou deserves to be in, but I think a real case could be made for Tram.

Tram had an MVP like season in 87, won an MVP in LCS play, but was always shadowed by Cal Ripken, i think.

Just my 2 cents.

But, your probably right. I'm probably just too biased :)

I'm being a terrible nitpick here, but would it kill you to spell his name right?

So sorry.

RYNE.

Feel better?

Geesh. It was an honest mistake.

Like I said...I was being a nitpicky douche, and I apologize. It just irks me, as I'm a huge Ryno fan. I have the guys poster up on my wall still, with his 89 Topps Rookie Card next to it.

His rookie card was from '83 (come on, just because we're being nitpicky - I couldn't resist ).

I know that, and completely blew it. I have no idea how I screwed that up.
