Frank Thomas: First Ballot Hall of Famer?

This is a slightly better background than my 3rd grade picture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No.  Recently Frank Thomas said he thinks he should be a first ballot hall of famer.  He says that he did things the right way and has done enough to be in the first time.  For reference here is a short list of first ballot hall of famers:  Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Ty Cobb, Hank Aaron.  The worst player to ever be voted in the first time according the WAR was Lou Brock at 43 career WAR.  Thomas’s is 69.7 which is better than 10-15 first timers.  Of course that is ignoring the massive steroid cloud hanging over everyone who has played in the past 20 years.  I’ve already written that steroids use, especially when speculated, shouldn’t be considered, but it is.  I think Thomas will get in easily.  But he’ll have to wait it out just like most everyone else.
