Hall of Fame vote: mine.

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.
