Fantasy Baseball HOF, but not MLB HOF


Recommended Posts

There are so many players who dominated in fantasy, and maybe even baseball, for 4-5 years (or more). It wasn’t enough to make the MLB HOF, but it was enough to make our FBHOF. 

Jose Reyes, Albert Belle, Mo Vaughn, Lincecum, Johan...just a short list to get the brain going. Share with us your nominee and some stats to back it up.

Two great calls here. I always owned Harden in the hopes that he’d finally stay healthy. Side note I’ve got a Carl Crawford card with a game-used bat piece in it. If you’ve got any use for it, DM

I’ve played long enough to roster Ellis Burks, andres gallagraga and those early Rockies hitters.  
Scott Posednik and Tony Womack

Catcher Joe Mauer

Bonds

Alfonso Soriano

Brandon Webb

My league was AL Only, so we had zero Rockies, no Bonds, Sosa, McGwire. Feel like we missed out on the whole era!

Podsednik a great one. Forgotten SB stud.

Two I thought about were Melvin Mora and Hank Blalock. Stud 3B for a few years.

How about Nomar and Tejada? Both were equal or better than Jeter in fantasy for a few seasons.

my favorite random fantasy season ever, 2000 Richard Hidalgo.  .314 avg, 44 homers, 122 RBIs, 118 runs, 13 SBs, 1000+ ops.

I think he just misses, but I can see the case when comparing him to other 2B.

Not sure Halladay would have made it under different circumstances, which would make 5 borderline guys on one team.

sticking with the yankees

don mattingly -  his prime was only 6 or so years because of the back.

but 340/100/30/120 was possible

Carlos "El Caballo" Lee

Tino Martinez, Bobby Abreu and Magglio Ordonez are the first ones to come to mind.

 

From 1995-2001 Tino was a premier RBI producer. Abreu was always one of my favorite players to draft. Was a steady contributor in every category for 14/15 years. Was an absolute monster in OBP leagues and had double digit steals for 16 (16!) years straight.

Loved Magglio and Abreu also.  Abreu when he use to swipe 40 bags was such a fantasy star.

Vince Coleman.  3 straight 100 steal seasons.  Yeah, they ran more back then, but come on.  Decent average, sometimes an excellent OBP.  Weak in HR and RBI, great in runs.  I wonder where he was drafted back then?  

 

1987: .289/.363 3hr 43rbi 121r 109SB.  

 

Where would that line be drafted today?  Maybe you could modify it since SBs are less common, but power is up too.  So he might be like 6/70.

this is exactly what came to mind for me.  Must have been one of my first years ever playing fantasy baseball and he carried me to a title.

He was looking like a real HOF.  5.6, 7.9, 6.4 and 7.4 win seasons.  He's only 37 right now!

I can still see him crashing into that wall.  Damn shame.  One of the best that rarely gets mentioned in that context
