2018 Baseball Eligibles (22)

Adam Kennedy was known for having an above average glove, but though he is unlikely to get any Baseball Hall of Fame votes, he cemented his place in Angels lore with his three Home Runs and 1.357 OPS in the American League Championship Series in 2002, the same year that the team won their first World Series. The Bullet Points: Country of Origin: U.S.A. (Riverside,…
A relatively good hitter throughout his career, Aubrey Huff record 1,699 Hits in his Major League career, and showed decent power with 242 Home Runs and a Silver Slugger Award in 2008. In his final three seasons, Aubrey Huff won two World Series Championships with the San Francisco Giants which isn’t a bad way to close off a career. The Bullet Points: Country of Origin:…
Ben Sheets was always poised for greatness, but it often seemed as if the four time All Star spent more time fighting back issues than he was throwing pitches. Sheets still was a solid Pitcher, though don’t we always wonder what would have happened had he been healthy throughout his career? He probably would have received at least more than the votes he will get…
Brad Lidge spent his entire career as a Relief Pitcher and in 2008, he would easily have his most memorable season where he won the National League Comeback Player of the Year, the NL Rolaids Reliever of the Year, finished fourth in Cy Young Voting, never blew a Save and won the World Series with the Philadelphia Phillies. Overall he recorded 225 Saves in his…
A four time All Star, Brian Fuentes spent his entire career as a Relief Pitcher. With his sidearm delivery, Fuentes would record 204 career Saves including leading the American League in 2009. He would retire with a career bWAR of 10.2. The Bullet Points: Country of Origin: U.S.A. (Merced, California) Eligible In: The 2018 Vote Position: Pitcher Played For: Seattle Mariners Colorado Rockies Los Angeles…
Carl Pavano had a few good seasons as a Starting Pitcher, most notably in 2003 where he helped the Marlins win the World Series and the season after where he made the National League All Star Team and finished 6th in Cy Young voting. Pavano had 108 Wins a career bWAR of 17.0. The Bullet Points: Country of Origin: U.S.A. (New Britain, CT) Eligible In:…
Carlos Lee had a decent career as a slugger, with over 350 Home Runs and 1,300 Runs Batted In and earned the Silver Slugger Award twice. Although Lee had good power numbers, he was often forgotten as he only made the top ten in that category once and never made the top ten in OPS and bWAR, though the latter was hampered by his poor…
Carlos Zambrano spent all but one season with the Chicago Cubs and was a three time All Star who led the National League in Wins in 2006. A versatile Pitcher with a varying array of pitches, Zambrano was also a very good hitting Pitcher who earned the Silver Slugger three times. The Venezuelan retired with a decent record of 132 and 91 with 1,637 Strikeouts…
Once Chris Carpenter oiled his trade with the St. Louis Cardinals, he became a bonafide ace. Carpenter captured the National League Cy Young Award in 2005 and was the runner up and second runner up for the Award in 2009 and 2006 respectively. The three time All Star was often decimated by injuries, which took away a large chunk of his career and forced him…
Francisco Cordero spent his entire Major League Baseball career as a Relief Pitcher and is one of the few hurlers to reach over 300 in Saves. Three times, Cordero was named to the All Star team and the fastball specialist finished second in Saves three times and was in the top five five times. The Bullet Points: Country of Origin: Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic Eligible…
Guillermo Mota may have the dishonor of being one of the few players in Baseball history to be suspended twice for PED use, but the Middle Reliever was able to win the World Series in two of his last three seasons, which was spent with the San Francisco Giants. The Bullet Points: Country of Origin: San Pedro de Macoris Eligible In: The 2018 Vote Position:…
Nicknamed “Godzilla”, Hideki Matsui came to the New York Yankees after ten stellar seasons in Japan, where he was an All Star nine times and a three time champion with the Yomiyuri Giants. Matsui was not as productive in the United States, but he did more than help the Yankees with the 2009 World Series, where he was named the Fall Classic’s MVP. Matsui’s numbers…

Primarily used as a Middle Reliever in his career, the highlight of J.C. Romero’s career was in 2008, where he won two games in the World Series and did not allow a run over four and two thirds innings. Romero would have a career bWAR of 7.7. The Bullet Points: Country of Origin: Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico Eligible In: The 2018 Vote Position: Pitcher Played…
Jack Wilson had a few good seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates, one of which saw him participate in the All Star Game and earn Silver Slugger honors. Wilson had a decent career overall, and once led the National League in Triples and twice in Sacrifice Hits. He also was more than an above average defender, leading the NL in Defensive bWAR in 2005. Wilson, whose…
As part of the New York Mets’ “Generation K”, much was expected of Jason Isringhausen and though he did not meet expectations as a Starting Pitcher, he did become a very effective Relief Pitcher, making two All Star Games, and leading the National League in Saves in 2004. Isringhausen would record 300 career Major League Saves in total, and another 11 in the Post Season.…
An average Starting Pitcher for most of his tenure in Major League Baseball, Jeff Suppan had his best moment in 2006, where as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals he won the World Series. In that post season, Suppan was awarded the NLCS MVP. The Bullet Points: Country of Origin: U.S.A. (Oklahoma City, OK) Eligible In: The 2018 Vote Position: Pitcher Played For: Boston…
So much greatness was expected from Kerry Wood, who won the National League Rookie of the Year in 1998, but he required Tommy John surgery the year after taking him out of the entire 1999 season. Wood would eventually come back and lead the NL in Strikeouts in 2003, but again injuries would pile up. He would a have tow year run as a closer…
Kevin Millwood had a long career and showed flashed of brilliance where he was an All Star once, he finished in the top ten in Cy Young Voting twice, and had one season where he led the National League in WHIP and in Earned Run Average in the American League another time. Had Millwood had a more consistent career, he might have accrued a vote…
Livan Hernandez had a long and productive career in Major League Baseball, and though he was never really among the elite Pitchers in the game, he was a valuable innings eater, a more than above average hitting Pitcher and finished off his career with a respectable 178 and 177, 1,976 Strikeouts and a 25.2 bWAR. Overall, it is not a Hall of Fame resume, but…
