I'm a WAR/JAWS guy, and Griffey Sr., while close to my threshold, isn't there for me despite easily passing 3000 hits. Same thing for Kingman and his 500 HR.
Above you said you use 3 year recalc. What is the highest average a player has hit for a season? What's your highest career batting average? I've had 2 players hit +.400 for a season. Eddie Collins hit .405 in 1947 and Ty Cobb hit .401 in 1969. Wade Boggs has played from 1971-1978, he has a .342 career average. Ty Cobb has hit .341, 1965-1978.
