    Would Rock make this trade? What do you think?

      I hope that Raines gets in. I always liked him and think that he definitely deserves it. With regard to the “trade,” wasn’t Raines starting to have some injury problems late in his career? I’m not sure that he could have handled 650 PA at that point.

      True – but, 400 PA per year would have helped him pad his stats…compared to what he did get in NY.

      I don’t think he would think twice about making that trade. I got the impression he loved being a Yankee and being a part of those teams. I know I loved having him around. He’s the perfect example of the way a veteran should handle his role in the decline phase of his career.

      I hope he gets into the Hall, but my gut feeling is he’ll be overlooked this time around.
