Rate this:
The standards for election to The National Baseball Hall of Fame have been nebulous, and its selection processes arcane, resulting in confusion among voters, not to mention mistakes in who has been recognized and who has been bypassed. Numerous so-called “greats” have been inducted despite having not been so great, while popular but controversial players such as all-time home run leader Barry Bonds and all-time hits leader Pete Rose are on the outside looking in. Now Jay Jaffe shows us how to use his revolutionary ranking system, the Jaffe WAR Score (JAWS) to ensure the right players are recognized.
