Ten Years, No HOF Votes . . . Where is the love? – 2014 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.

Then we did this again with the 2013 ballot.  So now that the 2014 voting is completed, we have six new “one and done” names to consider (Richie Sexson, Sean Casey, Todd Jones, Paul LoDuca, Mike Timlin and Ray Durham).  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: 1,249 – Ray Durham (new leader)

Hits: 2,192 – Cecil Cooper

Homers: 355 – Greg Vaughn

RBI: 1,322 – Ruben Sierra

Stolen Bases: 620 – Otis Nixon

Walks: 1,263 – Ken Singleton

Batting Average: .302 – Sean Casey (new leader)

On-base Percentage: .388 – Ken Singleton

Slugging Percentage: .507 – Richie Sexson (new leader)

OPS: .870 – Ryan Klesko

OPS+: 132 – Ken Singleton

Wins: 240 – Frank Tanana

ERA (starter): 3.07 – Bob Veale

ERA+ (starter): 117 – Gary Nolan

H/9 (starter): 7.03 – Sam McDowell

H/9 (reliever): 6.99 – Mitch Williams

K/9 (starter): 8.86 – Sam McDowell

K/9 (reliever): 8.74 – Dan Plesac

WHIP (starter): 1.145 – Gary Nolan

WHIP (reliever): 1.193 – Eddie Fisher

Appearances: 1,178 – Mike Stanton

Games Started: 616 – Frank Tanana

Saves: 326 – Roberto Hernandez

Innings pitched: 4,188.1 – Frank Tanana

Strikeouts: 2,773 – Frank Tanana

WAR (position players): 59.8 – Jim Wynn

WAR (pitchers): 55 Frank Tanana

Here is the updated possible 25-man roster from this group, based on highest WARs for each position (with a couple of corrections based on recalculated WARs).  Welcome to the team, Mr. Timlin and Mr. Durham.  I’d put these guys up against some All-Star teams, wouldn’t you?
