Look, I know you're a fan and all, I just respectfully disagree he should have made it...
He played during Rickey's years right? Then there's no way he can be "the greatest and most feared hitter of his generation"The guy still doesn't hold a candle to HAWK
I'll take Rock Raines over Hawk...
Nah, the Hawk was a better hitter, faster runner, and better outfielder than Jim "how did I ever get in the hall of fame?" rice.Andre Dawson is much more deserving and should have been inducted years ago.Rock Raines had a few good years, but not a hall of fame career.
I'll say this, I'd put Jim Rice in over Tim Raines
Rock Raines: (23 Seasons)BA OBP SLG OPS.294 .385 .425 810R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB1571 2605 430 113 170 980 808 Jim Rice: (16 Seasons)BA OBP SLG OPS.298 .352 .502 854 R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB1249 2452 373 79 382 1451 58Hawk Dawson: (21 Seasons)BA OBP SLG OPS.279 .323 .482 805R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB1373 2774 503 98 438 1591 314 Depends what you're looking for. I personally like how Raines was able to get on base, hit more extra base hits and score more runs then the other two. I mean, scoring runs and getting on base is the name of the game folks...
Let me give you three names Dews.Willie MaysBarry BondsAndre DawsonThe only members of the 400HR and 300SB club
Of which, two of them were capable of getting on base over 40 percent of the time, while Dawson with his career of 589 walks as opposed to Raines 1330, was not.
Not to mention the Hawks 8 Gold Gloves and ROY honor
