    Maybe Tim Raines shouldn’t make the Hall of Fame? If he does, then Kenny Lofton has a case too…

      Then how about this line…

      Games 2076
      Runs 1366
      Doubles 449
      Triples 55
      Home Runs 272
      RBI 1162
      SB 135
      BA .300
      OBP .381
      Slugging .477

      Plus 22 PS dingers, a batting title, an .850 PS OPS, 6 times in the top 20 voting for MVP, 4 WS Rings and 5 AS selections

      I wouldn’t downplay the huge variance in steals. Rock and Lofton definitely have a huge edge there. But, if either of these guys go….Bernie goes too. Look at the comparative 2B, HR, and RBI’s. I think all three just fall a hair short.
