Ten Years, No HOF Votes . . . Where is the love? – 2013 Update

After the 2012 Hall of Fame ballot results were announced, I thought it would be cool to take a historical look at those players who were on the standard BBWAA ballot at least once, and didn’t receive even one vote.  I presented the respective “career category leaders” within that group.

With the 2013 voting now completed, we have 11 (!) new “one and done” names to consider (Woody Williams, Jose Mesa, Mike Stanton, Roberto Hernandez, Jeff Cirillo, Reggie Sanders, Jeff Conine, Rondell White,Todd Walker, Ryan Klesko and Royce Clayton).  So here are the updated leaders:

Years played: 21 – Frank Tanana, Danny Darwin, Ron Fairly

Games: 2,442 – Ron Fairly

At-bats: 8,044 – Ruben Sierra

Runs: 1,125 – Devon White

Here is the updated possible 25-man roster from this group of 211, based on highest WARs for each position.  I’d put these guys up against some All-Star teams, wouldn’t you?:
