    I think player B wore the number 23- and just give me a yes on that if I'm right. A lot of fans my age who rooted for player B have a lot of sour grapes thinking player B has not gotten his due. First, his number was retired, although that team retires every number under the sun. Second, for what player B was, he was not all that great. On top of that, his numbers fell off very sharply after six or seven very good seasons. There are plenty of players on player B's team in the HOF, so stop whining.

    Player A was one of the premier hitters of his era. He put up high averages for most of his career- yes, most on the archrival of B's team. Also, player A won several batting titles and hit over.340 several times. I am not a big fan of player A, and he may be the weakest HOF with 3,000 hits, but the campaign for player B will have to wait for the Vet committee, who have their hands full with at least ten players with better stats than player B.

    I did not look that up by the way, and I'm sorry I figured it out and ruined your hypothetical experiment.

    Player B has the lifetime average but no other 'magical' numbers.

    Player A (as someone said) got in on 3000 hits and lifetime average.

    I'd say B deserves to get in, but I've always thought the baseball HOF voting is a joke (what the hell is a 'first ballot' HOF player? Did the non 1st ballot player somehow het better the second year? Stupid)

    BTW I'd guess B is Ron Santo (although 9 gold gloves may be high for him)

    If you are just comparing Player A to Player B...then sure B had great numbers in 4 less seasons. I think when the Hall is voted on, the Baseball writers don't look at just the numbers.

    one million. Derek Jeter FIRST BALLOTT 2.Mike Mussina: i'm on the fence in this one, i think if I had to assert the two way i could say specific. 3.Andy Pettite no longer yet, perchance after yet another year or 2 he would desire to strengthen his possibilities.. 4.Chipper Jones: merely approximately for specific he's in.. 5.Frank Thomas unquestionably 6. Jeff Kent specific 7. Curt Schilling at last, yet Blyleven would desire to flow in first. 8. Gary Sheffield: No 9. Luis Gonzalez: No 10. Barry Larkin No. i do no longer think of of him as being great specific while he performed.. 11. Billy Wagner: i could say, greater beneficial than probably, see John Franco.. 12. John Franco Now that Gossage have been given interior the door perchance open to closers and if so, they Franco would desire to be a hall of Famer.

    I don't think so. Very solid stats, but not Hall worthy. Player A has those 3,000 magical hits, and that's that.

    Is player A Wade Boggs???

    Anyway, those numbers pale in comparison to Jim Rice's dominance for over a decade, and he's not in...

    I think Player B does deserve to be in the Hall of Fame. Player A also deserves to be in the HOF more than Player B, but Player B sounds like a great player.

    well it certainly looks like it. Player B has some better numbers than Player A and A has been playing longer! I think Player B should definetly be in the hall.

    I think player B is worthy of being in the hall of fame. Sounds like it may be Pete Rose.

    No I don't think Don Mattingly deserves the hall. His numbers aren't great. If he is in so should Oliva and a lot of others with simalar numbers. Can't figure Sutter getting in and not Rice or Blyleven.

    A yes Batting average is up, low homerun average but you can tell they hit the ball. (wade boggs?)

    B i would say yes also because 6 all-stars 9 gold gloves and rbi;s are kind of high. home runs are average and he played a long time.(donnie baseball)?
