A Declaration of WAR on the Baseball Hall of Fame
by Tim Johnson
Introducing the "WAR Portfolio" method to analyze the hidden standards of Hall of Fame admission, this book identifies tiers established by past inductions and into which tier current HOF candidates for both the BBWAA and Veterans Committee votes would fall. Also includes forecasts for many current MLB stars, as well as essays on various Hall of Fame-related topics including the Steroid Era, the HOF election process, and examples of some of the worst reasons BBWAA members have ever given for voting on a particular HOF candidate. Inside you will learn where the bounderies of the three tiers of Hall of Famers are set, what it takes to make each tier, and which current Hall of Famer has a WAR Portfolio comparable to a current HOF candidate. You will be shocked at how weak some of the WAR Portfolios are for well-known candidates, and surprised at how strong some are for players you have forgotten all about. From Hank Aaron to Robin Yount, from Dick Allen to Bernie WIlliams, this book looks at the Hall of Fame candidacies of most every important player from 1900 until today through the eyes of their WAR Portfolio. Love a good baseball Hall of Fame argument? Then make certain you have your "WAR Portfolio" with you!
