      Since he will have a pretty high percentage, based on revealed votes. Even if he falls short, he's a good bet to get in soon. Which makes me less anxious about it.

      • I think he’ll get it.

        Handy and I know a guy who hates Mauer. Just hates him. Last week, he texted me “Mauer wouldn’t even be considered for HOF if he wasn’t a catcher”

          Lol. Technically correct I guess, but totally missing the point. Haters gonna hate.

            Nolan Ryan wouldn’t be in the hall if he wasn’t a pitcher I guess. lol

            • 55 WAR seemed borderline but I did not know how other C stack up. He is 11th and 9 of the 10 above him are in. Only Torre isn't and he spent much of his career at 1B.

              Seems to me he should be in if he was a decent defensive C. I have no idea -- he's not in any way a memorable player to me, but I am not much of an AL fan.

              • He won 3 gold gloves I believe. He'd probably had been more memorable if not for the Twins doing absolutely nothing in his 4 post-season appearances.

                  His easiest comp is buster posey who a lot of people think is a shoe in for the hall, and he leads him pretty much everywhere except world series wins.

                      Not memorable?

                        I honestly have no memory of Joe Mauer. His career spanned a time when I paid zero attention to the AL. It's me, not him. Trout was 7 years into his career before I could remember his name. I probably can't name 20 Mariners from the last 20 years, and they are ostensibly my AL team.

                            That guy doesn't know much about the game. If anything, Mauer might have been underrated during his career. Absolutely HOF worthy.

                              The guy is from turkey so baseball is a new sport for him.

                              the only people who don’t seem to think he’s HOF worthy are Molina fan boys. It’s hilarious to read forums where yankee, dodgers and Red Sox fans are all banding together saying Joe is worthy while cardinal fans cry about Joe
