    Why would you consider it reasonable to put Martinez at 3B when he only played 564 games there in his entire career? The guy was clearly a DH. You may not like the rule, but that is not relevant here.

      I never said I didn't like the rule. What I said is that DH is NOT a position, and that is correct. It is a place in the batting order, not a defensive position.

        No one said that it's a "defensive position" It is a position in the batting order, and thus, a position in the game. They give a silver slugger every year to the best hitting DH, so it is recognized as a position.

          Well, I've said my piece. We'll agree to disagree. If you think it is a position, check on BB-REF and look at the defensive stats for any modern-day AL player who was used as a DH.

            Why would I look at defensive stats for an offensive position?

            But since you mentioned it, they do list DH in the yearly defensive stats at BB-REF. They just don't give you a career total at the bottom.

                Ace, in the list of pitchers who are inducted there's a couple of mistakes.

                Lefty Grove, Tom Glavine, Carl Hubbell,

                Glavine is out of alphabetical order.

                Joe McCormick

                Should be "Jim" McCormick, not Joe.

                  Replying to a few points en masse:

                  -As far as the goofs in the list go, I'll fix those in the near future.
                  -I don't remember my justification for not first listing Molitor as a DH.
                  -There will be another election, but not now.
                  RIP Ronnie James Dio (July 10, 1942 - May 16, 2010).

                      I'm ending this project. I thought long and hard about doing another election, but I don't have a lot of motivation to do this anymore.
