1. Ozzie Smith makes the HOF only for his defensive prowess. Now Im not saying that he shouldnt have made it just what gets 1 player in should get another in too.
Roberto Alomar is the best defensive 2b to ever play PERIOD!!! The man would get to balls nobody else could get to. He also could bat 3rd in a lineup. Back in that era there wasnt any (Ryan Sandberg is the exception) 2b that did that.
Right now he has similiar amount of AB's as Jeter. He compares to Jeter in every offensive catergory too. Now Jeter isnt remotely close to Alomar defensively. But if Jeter was on the ballot with his present day stats he would make it into the HOF first ballot. There seems to be no consistency.
You cant say he wasnt a winner cuz he won at least 2 World Series with Toronto and batted over 300 in the postseason too.
Let me know what you think, should Alomar be in the HOF?
