Where exactly on Baseball Fever does this queue come from? Is this one member's opinion? I don't recall any rankings polls like this. I do like the list, but considering how most of Fever's HOF votes and polls include Negro and Japanese league players, I am wondering where they are.I, for one, do appreciate how you're being proactive here. It's so easy just to tear down lists and let it go at that. Opening the doors for further research is a great thing.

Dickey PearceThat list doesn't include a lot of key recent eligible candidates because it's a couple years out-of-date. Barry Larkin in particular is one of the biggest snubs although he should be getting in for sure in 2012 or 2013, if not 2011. Tim Raines seems to have done well this year also, according to early projections. Agreed that your list really seemed to skip over the 19th Century a bit too much. For the record, that list I just posted extends to nearly 150 names. And your #10, Roger Maris isn't one of them. The guy has also received virtually zero votes (if not actually zero) in Baseball Fever's HOF and the Hall of Merit over at Baseball Think Factory. The guy doesn't even have much of a case if you're just looking at traditional metrics and counting stats. Honestly, looking at the Hall in Cooperstown, nobody should really have a list greater than 50 of names that warrant omission. But this site having missed out on certain players in the above group of 40 that I just listed is pretty unforgivable because, again, there really aren't that many close calls. Players like Guidry, Blue & Colavito shouldn't even enter into the discussion.
