The Fantasy Fix   Jun 1st, 11:37am ET
The Hall Fame Index Part IIwent beyond the first edition by breaking each position into tiers with the top 50 position players at each position. The idea behind that was to make it easier to compare players. After all, if someone finished with 317 index wins...

One of the hallmarks of greatness is when your choices on similarity comparisons are limited. Everyone knows Albert Pujols is the greatest living first baseman. We could compare him to the two other possible players with him in that stratosphere, but everyone...

Similarity scores were a terrific invention by Bill James. Essentially, every two players start at 1000 and get points deducted for the differences between the basic counting numbers. The concept was simple. If you want to know if a player is a Hall of Famer...

Now that we move to the last four guys selected by the Veterans Committee, our focus changes considerably. In short, none of these guys should be anywhere near the Hall of Fame. I’m on pretty firm footing making that statement and I’m not stating...

As we move to the second list of Veterans Committee pitchers we suddenly run head long into the distinction that was made in the book The Hall of Fame Index Part II. Asking whether any of these individual pitchers are legitimate Hall of Famers is the wrong...

As we move to the mound, we have some issues to sort through. The book pretty well addressed the 19thcentury pitchers, so I will address primarily those pitchers selected by the Veterans Committee that we didn’t address in The Hall of Fame Index Part...

We can put Veterans Committee selections into three categories. There are those from the 19th century. Most of those were warranted because the BBWAA were not in a position to select those players because they had not seen them play. Of course, there were...
The Fantasy Fix   May 13th, 2:18pm ET
We see a number of different fallacies at play when we look at the center field group of Veterans Committee selections. The two biggest ones are the notion of the magical season and the dying embers that is batting average. Of course, we are getting ahead...
The Fantasy Fix   May 10th, 3:32pm ET
One of the peculiarities of Hall of Fame analysis is sorting through the various concepts of value. The traditional concept has fielding and hitting as equal parts of a player’s value. So, a player that wins numerous Gold Gloves at a position is theoretically...
The Fantasy Fix   May 6th, 2:47pm ET
In the positions we have seen so far, we have run across a number of prominent factors that seem to affect whether an unworthy player gets selected to be in the Hall of Fame. We see all those factors in full force with shortstops. We see players with impressive...
The Fantasy Fix   May 4th, 3:20pm ET
We have gone through three positions already which brings us to the halfway point in terms of position players. We didn’t focus on Veterans Committee selections in the book because we were focused more on players out of the Hall of Fame than those in...
