What is the case against Robbie Alomar as a Hall of Famer?
Has to be something more substantial than the spitting incident. I mean the Johnny Roseboro fight didn’t keep the Dominican Dandy out of the Hall, did it?
We know that Alomar and Hirschbeck patched things up years ago (not that it matters, really). Based on the numbers, what’s the case against?
Cause to my mind–without doing any work, here–he’s a sure thing. I could be wrong. But the dude was one hell of a hitter (I never wanted to see him up in a big spot against the Yanks when he played for the Blue Jays, Orioles or Indians), not to mention the most artistic-fielding second baseman I’ve ever seen.
What do you think?
