    It’s a gang of four.

      The 3,000-600-400-55-.282 Club. It’s a gang of three. Biggio was a great player, but I don’t think he belongs in Cooperstown.

      There are 123 hitters in the Hall of Fame with at least 5000 career PA. If Biggio were voted in, he’d rank 59th out of 124 in WAR.

      Raise it to 8000 PA and he’s 54th out of 88.

      Raise it to 10000 PA and he’s 35th of 46.

      Raise it to 12500 and he comes in last. But there’s only 8 such players in all of major league history.
