    Hey BBF experts, here's 25 more players to rank!

    Here you have it, more perspective HOFers to rate. Thanks for all the parcipitation. I just posted the rankings of the first 175. As usual the scale is:

    5-Why is he not in? (if he was eligible)
    4- Has a good case
    3- marginal, has some merit
    2-comes up short
    1-are you kidding me?

    Here are the players. As always, I really like when posters add comments to their rankings.

    Juan Pierre
    Juan Gonzalez
    Ken Griffey Jr
    Lance Berkman
    Larry Jackson
    Luis Gonzalez
    Matt Williams
    Miguel Tejada
    Mike Garcia
    Mike Piazza
    Randy Myers
    Reggie Smith
    Riggs Stephenson
    Rob Nen
    Robin Ventura
    Rocky Colavito
    Ron Cey
    Steve Finley
    Thurman Munson
    Tommy Bridges
    Tony Fernandez
    Trevor Hoffman
    Troy Percival
    Wes Ferrell
    Wilbur Wood

    Juan Pierre - 1 - Speed and a games streak that never should have happened is not enough. A very average player or less otherwise.
    Juan Gonzalez 3 - I value the RBI more than some, clearly. Still, short peak and PEDs tempt me to lower it.
    Ken Griffey Jr - 5 - No-brainer unless any new doubts arise.
    Lance Berkman - 3 - The very definition of borderline? Counting stats not impressive, everything else is. A better hitter than Gil Hodges, as much as I hate to admit it.
    Larry Jackson - 1 - A workhorse, but not much else. Really just a one-year peak.
    Luis Gonzalez -2 - Other than that one season for which doubts will always follow him, he's solid and unspectacular. I liked him as a player despite his Dodger-killing ways, but he falls short of the, say, Chet Lemon benchmark, let alone the HoF one.
    Matt Williams -2 - Good run-producer and underrated for other parts of his game besides the obvious. Still Hall of the Very Good.
    Miguel Tejada -2 - Quick fizzle. Still, nobody would have put him ahead of Nomar when they started, so something to be said for him.
    Mike Garcia - 2 - Far too much 'what if' to seriously consider, but made the most of what little time he had.
    Mike Piazza -5 - Unless the doubts amount to more than they have so far.
    Randy Myers -2 - Couldn't stay healthy long enough to meet the increased benchmarks for counting stats, but as good as Lee Smith most of the time.
    Reggie Smith -3 - Loved him as a Dodger, if he'd had a more easygoing personality he might've ended up managing them.
    Riggs Stephenson -3 - Late start and early end is all that keeps him out.
    Rob Nen -1 - Add him to the growing list of closers that couldn't keep it up for a full decade. Anything more than 5 years is impressive, but in no way hall-worthy.
    Robin Ventura -2 - Slightly below Ron Cey. The Torre/Hodges benchmark doesn't bode well for managing to help his case, even if he succeeds as well as I think he might.
    Rocky Colavito -2 - If ever a player could've benefitted from PEDs.
    Ron Cey - 2 - 2+, really, but still not enough ultimately.
    Steve Finley - 1 - Nice peak, not enough of it.
    Thurman Munson - 2 - If he'd only been a bit nicer to writers, might have gotten the Clemente treatment...
    Tommy Bridges -2 - Slightly better than Dave McNally or Dave Stewart, since he was better than average outside of it, but peak still too short.
    Tony Fernandez -1 - Played in the wrong era.
    Trevor Hoffman - 5 - You either put closers in or you don't. I say you do.
    Troy Percival -1 - But quick burnouts are far too common for anything less than a decade to impress. See also Nen, Robb.
    Wes Ferrell - 3 - Better than many pitchers in there, of course. And a throwback to an era when pitchers could help their own cause with the bat.
    Wilbur Wood -2 - Amazing peak, but not enough of it ultimately. Maybe if he could've held on longer.

    Juan Pierre 1 i like him more as a roto/fantasy player than i do as a hall candidate.
    Juan Gonzalez 2 borderline candidate, steroids rules him on the wrong side.
    Ken Griffey Jr 5 his star faded fast after his first year in cincinnati. I'm not sure if the centerfielder we traded didn't have a better finish (cameron) than he did, however his work in the 90s (all century player honors, clean image) first or second ballot
    Lance Berkman 3 He needs to finish strong to earn this 3. He just signed with the rangers and i think he can turn it on again. He seemed lost without passion last year, so he will need to recharge rededicate to get there
    Larry Jackson 1
    Luis Gonzalez 3 he had some unbelievable seasons coupled with a good career. he's a head scratcher, not sure if he compares to vern stephens albeit it at a different position
    Matt Williams 3 I can't believe he was one and done in balloting-that was way too harsh.
    Miguel Tejada 2 one of the big 4 with nomar, arod and jeter. I think he falls short of 2 of the 3
    Mike Garcia 1
    Mike Piazza 5 one of the most prolific hitting catchers of his era. his defense was awful, but i'm not sure the voters care.
    Randy Myers 3 i think myers has a very strong case and i was tempted to put 4, but i checked my personal feelings
    Reggie Smith 2 he's good, belongs in the very good hall of fame
    Riggs Stephenson 1
    Rob Nen 1 had serious talent, not enough longevity for me in his role
    Robin Ventura 3 had hof potential, but didn't quite get there for me, perhaps near ron cey
    Rocky Colavito 3 had hof potential
    Ron Cey 3 great threat posted earlier between cey and garvey which made me rethink cey a bit, but i still take garvey over cey's case. it wouldn't offend me if he was selected.
    Steve Finley 4 I may be overrating him a bit, but he scores very well in the system that i use and he was a ball player with speed and a power combination that played for a number of winning ball clubs.
    Thurman Munson 3 i'm not an advocate for him, but i can see where he was a legitimate talent, his untimely death was unfortunate.
    Tommy Bridges 1
    Tony Fernandez 2
    Trevor Hoffman 5 one of the best closers ever
    Troy Percival 2
    Wes Ferrell 1
    Wilbur Wood 2

    How can you pretend all of those hits and RBIs and contributions to his team winning never happened? In his prime, Wes Ferrell allowed his teams to be the only team to have a DH every 4th game. Incredibly real and incredibly valuable. So when Rick Ferrell gets a big hit we credit him, but when Wes does the same thing we pretend it didn't happen. Difference of opinion for sure. I couldn't possibly disagree more with a philosophy that this one.

    Juan Pierre - 1
    Juan Gonzalez - 2 sorry but I am biased against PED users
    Ken Griffey Jr - 5
    Lance Berkman - 4 a classic rate stat hero, counting stat zero - well not quite but by rate stats he is a top 15-20 or so LF
    Larry Jackson - 2
    Luis Gonzalez - 1 one dubious season and career spike
    Matt Williams - 4 he really just faded fast or so it seemed, arguably a top 15-20 3B
    Miguel Tejada - 2, see Gonzalez, Juan
    Mike Garcia - 1 really good and undernoted but career too short
    Mike Piazza - 5 he was way better than Juan or Tejada should the whispers be true (and I dodn't knwo that that makes sense)
    Randy Myers - 2 only because I liked him I 'm not a one inning closer guy
    Reggie Smith - 4
    Riggs Stephenson - 1 high BA in a high BA era with little else
    Rob Nen - 1 pfft to the one inning closer
    Robin Ventura - 3 maybe a 4 but he seems to get more credit for defense than a glance at the raw data woudl have you think, at any rate along with Cey and Wiliams top 15-25 is #B deserves at least a thought
    Rocky Colavito - 3 I think he was overshadowed and has a legendary arm
    Ron Cey - 3 see Ventura
    Steve Finley - 2 compiler with a spike in ability during a dubious
    Thurman Munson - 3
    Tommy Bridges - 3
    Tony Fernandez - 3 he was here and there the best SS in the AL during the mid 80s
    Trevor Hoffman - 3 I'm not crazy about this but he is at the top of the heap of one inning closers (Mariano is in a category of his own)
    Troy Percival - 1
    Wes Ferrell - 4 high peak, good bat, limited IP
    Wilbur Wood - 3 some of those early 70s seasons were out of this world. near 400 IP sub 2.00 ERA IIRC. Perception suffers from being a knuckleballer and BMI challenged

    Well, let's not pretend that Ferrell was the only one out there doing this. There were several other teams that had, in their prime, similar hitting pitchers. Red Ruffing, Red Lucas, George Uhle, Jack Scott, Walter Johnson, etc.

    I don't mean to dismiss his offensive value, for he was likely the best hitting pitcher of his time, but let's give credit were credit is due to these other pitchers.

    Juan Pierre - 1 Lotsa of at bats, longer career. There ya go.
    Juan Gonzalez 2 Monster hitter when he cared.
    Ken Griffey Jr 5 Top 50 player, at least.
    Lance Berkman 3 Glad he got a ring. Needs a couple more good seasons.
    Larry Jackson 1
    Luis Gonzalez 2 Big seasons at, uh, the wrong time to have big seasons. Needed big season when everytone wasn't suspect. Did not.
    Matt Williams 3 Top slugging third baseman.
    Miguel Tejada 3 Productive SS for a long time.
    Mike Garcia 1
    Mike Piazza 5 Not great defensively, but not bad in some areas. Too much offense to ignore.
    Randy Myers 2 Falls short of closers in the HOF discussion
    Reggie Smith 3 Fine player, but never a stand out. If stuck arond and hit like Rice did for a few seasons in Boston would be in HOF
    Riggs Stephenson 1 Good part-time player.
    Rob Nen 2 Good closer for a while
    Robin Ventura 3 A bit better offense and he might be in
    Rocky Colavito 3 Just short of mark but desrves a look
    Ron Cey 3 Would be a 4 if he had two legs
    Steve Finley 3 Steady but not great enough
    Thurman Munson 3 Top notch catcher who could have used a few years away from behind the plate to pad numbers. Still a shock
    Tommy Bridges 2
    Tony Fernandez 3 As Dave Concepcion case grows interest so should his
    Trevor Hoffman 4 The numbers will get him in
    Troy Percival 2
    Wes Ferrell 4 better than many in his era who are in, added offense puts him over top
    Wilbur Wood 2 workhorse should be better known
    Bill Tom George Mark Bob Ernie Soupy Alex Sparky
    Joe Gary MCA Emanuel Sonny Dave Earl Stan
    Jonathan Neil Roger Anthony Ray Thomas Art Don
    Gates Philip John Warrior Rik Casey Tony Horace
    Robin JEDI

    Johnson's career barely overlapped, but the others wee great hitters too. Well, Scott shouldn't be on the list either. Uhle and Lucas are near Ferrell's level. A little hyperbole, I guess.

    Juan Pierre - 3 ... a dark, darkhorse candidate.
    Juan Gonzalez - 3 ... I'm not opposed to his election entirely.
    Ken Griffey Jr - 5 ... first balloter.
    Lance Berkman - 3 ... if he keeps going and doesn't retire, he has a shot.
    Larry Jackson - 2 ... a great player, but not long enough.
    Luis Gonzalez - 2 ... didn't stand out during his time.
    Matt Williams - 2 ... not doing it for me.
    Miguel Tejada - 3 ... not a bad player at all.
    Mike Garcia - 1 ... I don't see a case.
    Mike Piazza - 5 ... should get in this year, but he won't.
    Randy Myers - 2 ... a good closer in the era of closers.
    Reggie Smith - 3 ... I can see a case, but he doesn't have the 'star' aura about him.
    Riggs Stephenson - 2 ... high average, that's about it.
    Rob Nen - 2 ... didn't do quite enough.
    Robin Ventura - 2 ... another good third baseman.
    Rocky Colavito - 2 ... high 2, low 3.
    Ron Cey - 2 ... good third baseman, not stellar.
    Steve Finley - 3 ... he has the resume of a VC pick down the line.
    Thurman Munson - 3 ... I have him in my personal Hall of Fame, some of the time.
    Tommy Bridges - 2 ... he gets some support around here...but not from me.
    Tony Fernandez - 2 ...not bad, not stellar.
    Trevor Hoffman - 4 ... not the greatest closer, but he ranks near the top.
    Troy Percival - 2 ... good closer.
    Wes Ferrell - 2 ... I'm not on the Wes Ferrell love train.
    Wilbur Wood - 2 ... a good starter and a good reliever who pitched forever.

    Here you have it, more perspective HOFers to rate. Thanks for all the parcipitation. I just posted the rankings of the first 175. As usual the scale is:

    5-Why is he not in? (if he was eligible)
    4- Has a good case
    3- marginal, has some merit
    2-comes up short
    1-are you kidding me?

    Here are the players. As always, I really like when posters add comments to their rankings.

    Juan Pierre - 1
    Juan Gonzalez - 2 would be a 3-4 withouth PED
    Ken Griffey Jr - 5 duh
    Lance Berkman - 4, maybe a 3.5 but I think he's got another 2 all star caliber 2011 type years in him. Hitting in Texas should help a ton. Perceived as clean, his rate stats need to hold up while he adds to his counting numbers. Always one of my favs
    Larry Jackson - 2
    Luis Gonzalez -2 Went from rafael palmeiro to RAFAEL PALMEIRO. Stinks of PEDs
    Matt Williams -2 Solid player with too many injuries
    Miguel Tejada -2 Overrated
    Mike Garcia - 2
    Mike Piazza - 5 Should make it in 2014
    Randy Myers - 2
    Reggie Smith - 3 Another 3.5 guy. Really surprised every time I look at his numbers.
    Riggs Stephenson - 2
    Rob Nen - 2
    Robin Ventura - 3 Aged poorly but very solid glove.
    Rocky Colavito - 3 On track for 500 HR and hit a brick wall at 32. According to my dad, the best arm he ever saw.
    Ron Cey - 2
    Steve Finley - 2
    Thurman Munson - 3
    Tommy Bridges - 3
    Tony Fernandez - 2
    Trevor Hoffman - 4 He'll get in, probably first ballot too.
    Troy Percival - 2
    Wes Ferrell - 3
    Wilbur Wood - 2

    Here are the players. As always, I really like when posters add comments to their rankings.

    Juan Pierre- 1.5- longevity, speed, at best average at everything else
    Juan Gonzalez- 3- based on on-field performance- below the line for me
    Ken Griffey Jr- 5- big, long fade but still a great player
    Lance Berkman- 3- don't think he'll get in, but has had a fine career
    Larry Jackson- 2- good pitcher for quite a few years
    Luis Gonzalez- 2- good player, not enough
    Matt Williams- 3- won't get in, but very good
    Miguel Tejada- 2.5
    Mike Garcia- 2- short career but very good pitcher
    Mike Piazza- 5- great offense, not quite as bad defensively as reputed by some
    Randy Myers- 2
    Reggie Smith- 3- very good player for a long time- won't get in, but was very valuable
    Riggs Stephenson- good player, short career
    Rob Nen- 1.5- fast burnout
    Robin Ventura- 2.5
    Rocky Colavito- 2.5- good player, nedded another couple of seasons to have a shot
    Ron Cey- 3
    Steve Finley- 2
    Thurman Munson- 3- very good player- top 20 catcher, can make a pretty good case
    Tommy Bridges- 2.5- good pitcher, needed more counting numbers
    Tony Fernandez- 2
    Trevor Hoffman- 4- definitely will get in- probably one of top 5 or 6 relievers
    Troy Percival- 1.5
    Wes Ferrell- 3.5- over the line for me
    Wilbur Wood- 2.5- good pitcher, falls a little short
