The Maris comparison strikes me as a little harsh, but Raines is no Sandy Koufax either. The five or six year dominance argument should be reserved for extremely special players, and I'm not sure Raines fits the bill.

In a lenghty debate posted at ESPN, Jason Stark persuades Peter Gammons to vote for Raines on his next HOF ballot.

A lead-off hitter's job is to score runs, and Raines in his prime was awfully good at that. But that's a little like saying Roger Maris in his prime was a great home-run hitter. I would submit that 1983 through the strike-shortened 1987 are the only seasons in which Raines posted clearly HOF-worthy numbers. In 23 seasons of leading off, he scored 100 runs or more six times.
