High Hall Ratings with Multiple FranchisesMar 13, 2013 by Adam Darowski
Now that we show franchise contributions on each player page, I’ve noticed a couple players who actually had multiple Hall-worthy careers (Hall Rating > 100) with different franchises. Today, let’s look a those players as well as some others who had large contributions with multiple teams.
100 Hall Rating with Multiple Teams
Four players reached a Hall Rating of 100 with more than one team.
- Barry Bonds: Bonds was a Hall of Famer before he even left Pittsburgh with a 109 Hall Rating. After that, he added a Hall Rating of 256 with San Francisco.
- Eddie Collins: Collins split his career between the Philadelphia Athletics and Chicago White Sox. He split his career value, too. His Hall Rating with Chicago was 130 while his Hall Rating in Philly was 122.
- Tris Speaker: Speaker was already Hall-worthy (with a Hall Rating of 118) when traded from Boston to Cleveland. He then managed to be better with the Indians (with a Hall Rating of 155). He added a Hall Rating of 6 for the Senators and 0 for the A’s.
- Cy Young: Young is the only player with a Hall Rating of 130 for two teams—he had a 156 with the Cleveland Spiders before earning a 137 in Boston. He also had a Hall Rating of 32 for St. Louis, 8 for Cleveland, and 1 for the Boston Braves.
50 Hall Rating with Multiple Teams
Only one player in history has earned a 50 Hall Rating with three different franchises: Alex Rodriguez. He has been worth the most in New York with a 104 Hall Rating. In Seattle, he had a Hall Rating of 83 while he had a 55 Hall Rating in Texas. 31 players have earned a 50 Hall Rating or better with two teams.
25 Hall Rating with Multiple Teams
Roger Clemens had a 172 Hall Rating with the Boston Red Sox, but he also managed to post a Hall Rating of 37 or better with three other teams. He is the only player in history with a 25 Hall Rating with the four different franchises. He had a 45 Hall Rating in Toronto (in just two seasons), a 38 in New York, and a 37 in Houston. The following players had a 25 Hall Rating (or better) with three teams:
- Pete Alexander
- Adrian Beltre
- Dan Brouthers
- Kevin Brown
- Brett Butler
- David Cone
- Bill Dahlen
- Dennis Eckersley
- Jack Glasscock
- John Olerud
- Gaylord Perry
- Alex Rodriguez
- Nolan Ryan
- Curt Schilling
- Bobby Wallace
- Cy Young
Six players managed a Hall Rating of 10 or better with five clubs:
Rather impressively, one player managed a Hall Rating of 5 or better with seven different franchises. That, of course, was my beloved, precious Deacon White.
