Raffi-ness

A couple of SBNation pieces on Rafael Palmeiro worth checking out...

Beyond the Box Score has a great analysis as to why Raffy should be considered a slam-dunk HOFer...one of the interesting things, in going down their list, is how, after Gehrig and Foxx, the quality of first basemen drops precipitously. After those two, the #3 HOF first baseman in terms of JAWS is Eddie Murray. Which raises, actually, an interesting question...no doubt, Gehrig and Foxx are the two greatest first basemen of all time, but who is, realistically, #3 on the list?

In addition, John Sickels does a Prospect Retrospective on Raffy over at Minor League Ball...

Both terrific articles, and both worth checking out...
