Tim Raines much lower on James HoF monitor than other non-first candidates.
I'd vote for Barry Larkin, Jeff Bagwell, Mark McGwire.
Bernie Williams is way overrated because he happened to have played center field. Had Williams played a corner, he would have zero support. Williams only won a gold glove after Ken Griffey, Jr. and Jim Edmonds left the AL.
In stupid defensive WAR Bernie Williams is dead last among CF with 5,000 PA. I don't have much confidence in defensive stats but those into them won't get any support for Williams.
Note: Bernie's teammate Derek Jeter is last among SS ... by a lot.
