    No player currently more deserving than Edgar.

    “As to Edgar’s almost-exclusive role as a DH, I’d argue that every American League team has had to fill that position every day for nearly four decades, and no one filled it better than Martinez” …. hence why each year the most outstanding DH is awarded the EDGAR MARTINEZ AWARD :-)

    Personally, my vote for “most overloooked candidate” is Tim Raines. The best leadoff hitter not named Ricky Henderson, and arguably better than Ricky for a few years I’m the mid-80s.
    Edgar was great, alrght, but the stupidity of the Ms wanting jim Presley to develop into a front line third baseman can’t really be part of his case for the Hall.
    Bill James gives ready responses to a lot of the statistical blizzard here in his book about the Hall, in a general sense – he’s ambivalent about Edgar, though I think he wouldn’t object to Edgar’s induction. That’s probably about where I stand, though better arguments than these could certainly persuade me otherwise.
