I was watching the MLB Network the last couple nights, a show called “Clubhouse Confidential,” and they came out with statistical comparisons that bode favorably for Alan Trammell as a Hall of Fame candidate.

The host, Brian Kenney, is excellent on the show. I watch it regularly, so I’m not bagging on him. I just had to laugh, though, at this sudden discovery he made that Trammell’s numbers compared favorably to Barry Larkin, who is expected to get in the Hall this year, and if not, in the not- too-distant future. Or even with Cal Ripken, who was arguably the most prolific power-hitting shortstop of all time (It depends on whether you want to put Ernie Banks and Alex Rodriguez in the equation, because they switched positions mid-career).

He used both conventional statistics and Sabermetrics, the later which has some good elements and others, such as WAR (wins above replacement), that can be a stretch.
