    Will Vladdy be the greatest Canadian born baseball player of all time?

    Pretty tall order. Larry Walker had 69 fWAR in his career, Fergie Jenkins had 80, and Votto is at 54 and still going strong. That's pretty tough territory for a player who will have no defensive value and negative baserunning value.

    Actually... Votto seems like he'd be a pretty close comp to Vlad's ceiling... maybe more pop and less obp...

    It might have something to do with Votto having the 12th highest OBP of all time.

    I think it's the bat to ball skills that will keep his obp down. I think Vlad has a lot more strike zone aggression and will put way more balls in play than Votto, which will keep his OBP down (and by down I mean... something like .380ish). I don't envision Vlad walking upwards of 16% of the time long term.

    I always thought he was a shoo in, penalizing the man because of Colorado's dumn.

    He really deserves to be in. I hope they get it right eventually.

    Wonder if Votto will be in a similar situation given how they have played the majority of their careers for bad teams.

    He needs to play a lot more healthy ball, but yes, he'll be in.

    I think Walker is especially hurt by the fact that it was Colorado. Dumb voters aren't giving him enough credit for his offense because they're over-correcting for Coors.
