The Hall of Consensus

The Hall of Consensus is a living document that shows which players are supported by many sources for the Hall of Fame. These sources include the National Baseball Hall of Fame, the Hall of Stats, Baseball Think Factory’s Hall of Merit, and various Personal Halls of Fame.

I’ve included the Personal Halls of:

Note that these are inductees of their respective Halls with the player designation (where applicable).

There are 141 players who are in the Hall of Fame, Hall of Stats, Hall of Merit, and each personal Hall. (150 are in the Hall of Fame, Hall of Stats, and Hall of Merit.)

The Hall’s Biggest Blunders?

These two lists are the most important. First, we have the players who are in the Hall of Fame, but excluded from the Hall of Stats, Hall of Merit, and everyone’s Personal Halls. The second list contains the opposite—the players the Hall of Fame has overlooked, but are honored by the Hall of Stats, Hall of Fame, and everyone’s Personal Halls.

Everything Except the Hall of Fame:

  1. Barry Bonds (362)
  2. Roger Clemens (294)
  3. Curt Schilling (172)
  4. Mike Mussina (164)
  5. Larry Walker (151)
  6. Bill Dahlen (145)
  7. Lou Whitaker (144)
  8. Alan Trammell (143)
  9. Bobby Grich (140)
  10. Kevin Brown (138)
  11. Rick Reuschel (137)
  12. Edgar Martinez (135)
  13. Manny Ramirez (129)
  14. David Cone (129)
  15. Graig Nettles (126)
  16. Reggie Smith (125)
  17. Rafael Palmeiro (125)
  18. Mark McGwire (124)
  19. Dwight Evans (123)
  20. Bret Saberhagen (122)
  21. Jim Edmonds (121)
  22. Ken Boyer (117)
  23. Dick Allen (116)
  24. Dave Stieb (115)
  25. Keith Hernandez (115)
  26. Ted Simmons (112)
  27. Joe Torre (112)
  28. Sherry Magee (111)
  29. Wes Ferrell (111)
  30. Jim Wynn (110)

It’s About More than Just Stats

The players who are only in the Hall of Stats had impressive statistical records, but seem to be missing the narrative that would garner them Hall of Fame support. The players in every Hall except the Hall of Stats didn’t quite reach the 100 Hall Rating, but have enough of a case to make up for it.

Only in the Hall of Stats:

  1. Jack Quinn (110)
  2. Chet Lemon (109)
  3. Chuck Finley (109)
  4. Babe Adams (109)
  5. Tony Mullane (105)
  6. Orel Hershiser (103)
  7. Robin Ventura (103)
  8. Charlie Buffinton (102)
  9. César Cedeño (102)
  10. Nap Rucker (101)

Everything Except the Hall of Stats:

  1. Willie Keeler (99)
  2. Enos Slaughter (95)
  3. Ralph Kiner (93)
  4. Rich Gossage (90)
