If Yogi Berra wasn't a first ballot HOFer, I'm not sure who is.

Should be; won't be.  Playing in Seattle is a definite minus for HOF consideration, and there are still, for some reason, sportswriters who bad-mouth him.  But he'll get in.

Hit his 300th career HR last night.

Becomes the third primary second baseman to reach that plateau (Hornsby and Kent).

Has finished in the top 10 in MVP voting 6 times and 8 time All-Star and 2 Gold gloves.

65.8 WAR in 13 seasons.

So he is a first ballot HOF'er, right?

a poor second half in HR, although his wRC+ barely dropped.

Home Runs become somewhat random.  It's hard to predict who will stand out -- somewhat different from the steroid era,  I know there are some exceptions during the steroid era (Anderson, Gonzalez, et al.) but it seemed that the best home run hitters just hit more than they had before, not like now with journeymen or rookies taking the lead and everyone is on pace for 20 or more.  Of course, the drug cocktails could not be as uniform as steroids in the balls themselves.

I have an idea with this new style baseball:  Let's have special categories -- complete games, batter hitting a home run and not striking out during the game (minimum 3 pa -- don't want the pinch hit homer counting), the actual Super 2 date (maybe horseshoe and grenade points for close guesses), a category for getting politically involved.

The Times' list of the 3 deserving AL 1Bs for the All Star Game is good evidence of the randomness this year.  It's not the young talent coming up and impressing.  It's the guys who have been around for a decade and shown a little pop, but not like this.  Everybody is Brady Anderson.  I like when Graig Nettles won the AL crown with 32.

Put the game away with a three-run homer in the eighth. He's on a pace to hit 34 homers and drive in 120 and it's nothing special.

Recently starting hitting well, including a HR and a double tonight.  That double cost him a quad strain.

My bid on him is a tepid $28.

It should probably be $30 or $31. But I still wouldn't have purchased him in LABR even if it had been.

$31 in Tout this weekend. He's not a walking machine but with a career OBP of .355, I'm surprised he didn't get a few dollars more in this OBP league.

Actually, I'm surprised he didn't get a few dollars more in the batting average leagues (CBS 29, LABR 31). The math is the math, but batting average consistency is its own form of scarcity.

I've talked myself into giving him a $3 bump in my bid.

Maybe I should say the experts have.
