1. Gary Carter

Entering the Baseball Hall of Fame with an Expos hat in 2003, “The Kid”, Gary Carter, was considered to be one of the best Catchers in baseball for a decade, both with his bat and with his glove.  

27. Gary Carter

There is nobody who can question that Gary Carter was at his best when he was a Montreal Expo, but “The Kid” was still a solid player when he signed as the Mets Catcher.  Carter went to four All Star Games as a Met (though realistically he shouldn’t have made the last two) but finished 6th and 3rd respectively in MVP voting for his first two seasons as a Met.  Carter would help the Mets win the 1986 World Series Championship and will always be remembered in the Big Apple.

Our Top 50 All-Time Washington Nationals have been updated

As always, we here at Notinhalloffame.com continue to update our existing lists.

As we slowly put together our Top 50 all-time players for every major team we constantly continue to update our existing ones. For the second time, we are updating the first franchise 50 we ever posted, the Washington Nationals.

Since the last time we revised our Washington Nationals two things have changed.

The first is that since our last revision in two and a half years ago, we have relaxed the dependence on advanced statistic and put a higher reward on individual seasons. We think this allows for a more equitable balance on traditional and advanced metrics.

The second and of course obvious change is that two full seasons have passed. This list is now up until the end of the 2017 Season.

The entire list can be found here and we certainly encourage you to take a look at it and let us know your thoughts and opinions.

Prior to that we wanted to make you aware of a few major changes on the list since the last revision.

Max Scherzer debuts at #9. While his tenure with Washington has certainly been brief, three All Stars and two Cy Youngs already make him one of the most successful hurlers in Nationals history.

2014 Silver Slugger Anthony Rendon makes his first appearance at #22.

Other debuts on current Nationals are Daniel Murphy (#31) and Tanner Roarke (#35).

Other jumps in active Washington Nationals include Bryce Harper from #9 to #8, Steven Strasburg goes from #29 to #11 and Gio Gonzalez moves from #28 to #16.

Other debuts based on our revisions are Moises Alou (#38), Dan Schatzeder (#45) and Wilson Ramos (#47).

As you may have deduced, the entire list has been shuffled.

We will be unveiling the Top 50 All-Time Dallas Stars next.

Awards = HOF? Part Five: The Silver Slugger (Catcher) (MLB)

We here at Notinhalloffame.com thought it would be fun to take a look at the major awards in North American team sports and see how it translates into Hall of Fame potential.

Needless to say, different awards in different sports yield hall of fame potential.  In basketball, the team sport with the least amount of players on a roster, the dividend for greatness much higher.  In baseball, it is not as much as a great individual season does not have the same impact.

Awards = HOF? Part Twenty-Three: Gold Glove Catcher
