The 2022 National Baseball Hall of Fame vote will be closed by the end of the year, and the results will be announced on January 26, Japan time. This time, there are 30 candidates whose names are listed on the voting form. Thirteen people, including Alex Rodriguez and David Ortiz, will make their debut, and Curt Schilling, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Sammy Sosa will be in their 10th year of last chance. Reporter Andrew Simon of the Major League Baseball official website carefully selects and introduces “data you need to know” for all 30 candidates.
Bobby Abreu: One of six who recorded more than 250 home runs and more than 400 stolen bases (the other five are Craig Biggio, Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonds, Rickey Henderson and Joe Morgan).
Barry Bonds: Dividing the 22-year career into the first half 11 years and the second half 11 years, the first half WAR (baseball reference version) 83.6 is just below Ken Griffey Jr. (83.8), equivalent to 37th place in fielder history. However, 79.1 in the latter half is just below Joe DiMaggio (79.2) and corresponds to 42nd place in the history of fielders.
Mark Buehrle: From 2001 to the last year of active duty, he started in more than 30 games for 15 consecutive years, pitched more than 2/3 198 times, and recorded double-digit wins for 15 consecutive years. He has never been on the disabled list.
Roger Clemens: Received the Cy Young Award seven times, the most in history. The total number of awards received by any of the other two right arms cannot be exceeded.
Carl Crawford: Since 2000, 123 triples have been ranked 2nd in the majors, 480 stolen bases have been ranked 4th, and season 45 stolen bases and above have been ranked 2nd after Juan Pierre (8th).
Prince Fielder: In the eight years from 2006 to 2013, 1283 games were the most played in major leagues, 724 walks were second, and 283 home runs and 860 RBIs were fourth.
Todd Helton: One of five people who have recorded 160 or more four times in “OPS +” calculated with stadium correction since 2000 (the other four are Barry Bonds, Miguel Cabrera, Albert. Pujols, Mike Trout).
Ryan Howard: Recorded 58 home runs and 149 RBIs in 2006 when he won the MVP. Only three other batters, Jimmy Foxx, Babe Ruth and Sammy Sosa, recorded more than 58 home runs and more than 149 RBIs in the same season.
Tim Hudson: Active as a ground ball pitcher in the era of mass production of home runs. A total of 0.71 home runs per 9 innings is the best number among 65 pitchers who have thrown more than 2000 innings since 1995.
Torii Hunter: Received the Gold Glove Award nine times as a center fielder (for the ninth consecutive year since 2001). This is the second number after Willie Mays (12 degrees), Ken Griffey Jr. (10 degrees), and Andrew Jones (10 degrees).
Andrew Jones: Recorded a total of 253 with a defensive index called “Total Zone Runs”. Only third baseman Brooks Robinson (293) surpasses this in major history.
Jeff Kent: Not only did he hit 351 home runs, the most in history as a second baseman, but he also beat former record holder Ryne Sandberg by 74.
Tim Lincecum: The only pitcher in history to win multiple Cy Young Awards in the first three major seasons (two consecutive years since 2008).
Justin Morneau: One of the three MVP winners from Canada, one of the two top hitters, and the only home run derby champion.
Joe Nathan: Recorded 5 times with 35 saves or more and an earned run average of less than 2.00. This is second in history after Mariano Rivera (9 degrees), who was inducted into the Hall of Fame with a full vote.
David Ortiz: In 2016, he recorded a major top slugging percentage of .620 and OPS 1.021 in the last year of his career. 48 doubles, 38 home runs and 127 RBIs are his final year’s major records.
Jonathan Papelbon: A feat in which only four players have achieved no runs in 17 consecutive games since the first pitch in the postseason. He managed to score no goals in 26 innings in these 17 games and closed the batter to OPS.339.
Jake Peavy: In 2007, when he won the Cy Young Award, he won 19 wins, earned run average 2.54, and won the triple crown of pitchers with 240 strikeouts. Only five other pitchers have achieved the Triple Crown in the National League since 1940: Clayton Kershaw, Randy Johnson, Dwight Gooden, Steve Carlton and Sandy Koufax.
Andy Pettitte: He has participated in the postseason for the ninth consecutive year since his first major year, and has 44 starts in total, 276 times 2/3, and 19 wins, all of which are major records in the postseason.
AJ Pierzinski: There are 14 seasons in which he has participated in more than 100 games as a catcher, and he is the 7th place in history as a catcher.
Manny Ramirez: Recorded OPS.996 with a total of 9774 at-bats. Only Barry Bonds, Babe Ruth and Ted Williams marked OPS.996 or higher with more at-bats.
Alex Rodriguez: Ranked in the top 15 home runs in two different positions (344 home runs as shortstop, 287 home runs as 14th).
Scott Rolen: I have never defended a position other than third base, including DH. All of his 17479 innings 1/3 were recorded as third baseman, and “Total Zone Runs” marked 140, which is the sixth place in the history of third baseman.
Jimmy Rollins: In 2007, when he won the MVP, he achieved the only 20 triples, 30 home runs and 40 stolen bases in history.
Curt Schilling: He recorded the league’s first place five times in the ratio of strikeouts and walks, but all seasons after the age of 34. Among pitchers who have thrown more than 700 innings since the age of 34, the ratio of strikeouts and walks (K / BB) 6.50 is by far the number.
Gary Sheffield: Recorded 42 home runs, 142 walks and 66 strikeouts in 1996. Since 1955, Barry Bonds is the only batter who has had a better ratio of walks to strikeouts with more than 40 home runs in the season.
Sammy Sosa: Recorded 425 base hits in 2001, the 7th place in history. This is the number since Stan Musial marked 429 bases in 1948.
Mark Teixeira: Recorded 314 home runs and 1017 RBIs in the first nine years of the majors. In his first nine years, he is fifth in history in terms of both home runs and points.
Omar Vizquel: The only player in history to play as a shortstop since his 45th birthday. He has played 266 shortstops since the age of 40, but since 1950 he has only 292 games in total for all other players.
Billy Wagner: In 13 seasons when he pitched in more than 30 games, his ERA never exceeded 2.85. In the live-ball era (since 1920), the total ERA of 2.31 is second only to Mariano Rivera with pitchers of 750 innings or more, and WHIP 0.998 is the best number slightly higher than Rivera (1.000).
