    I would never have guessed Evan Longoria has over 50 more career homers than Bryce.

    #LetsGoSwitzerlandThe Man Who Does Not Read Has No Advantage Over the Man Who Cannot Read. The biggest obstacle to progress is a habit of “buying what we want and begging for what we need.”You get the Freedom you fight for and get the Oppression you deserve.

    He surprises a lot of people being that high up.

    Miggy is a lock

    Cruz will be interesting to see how they treat someone who played the most games at DH. Hes very boarderline and his DH status is actually a plus to me given how hard it is to sit for a couple innings than go hit.

    Stanton probably gets there, but it could get interesting. Eversince he got to the Yankees and decided to be a body builder he cant stay on the field.

    Trouts a lock

    Votto shouldnt get in but probably will

    Longoria it would be hypocritical to vote for if you had the chance and didnt vote for Andruw Jones. Both should be in though

    Goldy, Arenado, Manny, Freeman, Harper, Betts are well on their way but need to keep it up for a few more years.

    JD, Abreu, Donaldson, Santana, McCutchen, Rizzo are an easy no

    Judge is probably a no, hes had two monster years which are over half his stats and hes a 6'7 player on the wrong side of 30 with a lot more he has to do.

    Perez will probably do enough when its said and done, but playing on really bad KC teams other than those couple years winning the WS which he was the MVP of. Hes pretty close to being in elite territory on some numbers for catchers

    Miguel Cabrera and Freddie Freeman

    Curious as to why Eugenio Suárez isn't on this list (also 238 HR).

    I'm not trying to be a wise guy here but honest answer with the amount and type of players the HOF is known to let in now, I'd say most everyone on that list gets in eventually or pretty close

    That isn't that far fetched. With the exception of Donaldson and Santana, they all have enough of their story to write that they could each make a claim if things fall their way.

    I was hoping Abreu was going to have a good twilight to make a very interesting case considering he was a foreign player and missed all his MLB years before age 27.

    I disagree with your conclusion, but rather say we can't rule anybody out. For example, there are many people worse than, say, Anthony Rizzo, enshrined, but also, say, Norm Cash, Will Clark, John Olerud, and Keith Hernandez (to pick a few first basemen almost at random) who are better than Rizzo, better than most if not all on the Committee ballots, and yet not given any serious consideration.

    It shouldn't surprise anyone to see any of these players enshrined, though Santana would be a horrible choice, but rally only Trout, Cabrera, and Votto should be sure things, and the BBWAA probably won't admit Votto.
