The Hall of Fame is a weird place.
Every year, BBWAA members explain to the reader what their own views of the Hall are. Some like a big one and would welcome a fringe player like Harold Baines. Some believe in a small hall.
Some believe in WAR and FIP; some prefer major milestones.
Some base their selections on the postseason; some base theirs on just the regular season.
Hence lies the slippery slope of saying a certain player is "definitely not" Hall of Fame-caliber. Andre Dawson and Jim Rice, for example, are questionable picks to many, but obviously popular enough to gain entry.
However, there is a major difference between a fringe Hall of Famer making it in and a player with really unimpressive career numbers stumbling in based on hype. Unfortunately, hype has been, ultimately, the No. 1 criteria for acceptance into the Hall of Fame.
As well as I can, here are my top 10 most overrated Hall of Fame players of all time.
