For the benefit of MarkInCincy, I thought I would post Mr. Bench's accomplishments so far. This could be a lengthy post, so bear with me. He played a partial season in 1925 as an 18 year old and has played 11 full seasons since then through his age 29 season in 1936. He played his first ten seasons with the Philadelphia Athletics and the last two with the St. Louis Browns, so he's spent his entire career in the AL. He is an 11-time All-Star, only missing in that abbreviated rookie season of 1925. He has one ring from the 1930 season with the Philadelphia Athletics. He has won the Ted Williams (Silver Slugger) Award 9 times at C, and the Ozzie Smith (Gold Glove) Award 7 times at C. He has been the Player of the Week 15 times, and the Batter of the Month 5 times.

His MVP finishes are as follows:

1925: N/A (Mike Schmidt won)
1926: 5th (behind Schmidt, Rocky Colavito, Ed Konetchy, and Charlie Hanford)
1927: 2nd (behind Schmidt)
1928: 6th (behind Schmidt, Mike Shannon, Al S Shaw, Mat Latos, and Colavito)
1929: 3rd (finally beat out Schmidt, but couldn't get past Mickey Mantle and Jake Peavy)
1930: 2nd (narrowly beat out by Paul Splittorff)
1931: 7th (behind Mantle, Schmidt, Duffy Lewis, Colavito, Miguel Cabrera, and Jerry Koosman)
1932: 2nd (behind Mantle)
1933: 13th (behind twelve dudes: Mantle won it by a mile)
1934: 3rd (behind Mantle and Addie Joss)
1935: 12th (behind eleven dudes: Mantle wins again)
1936: 19th (behind eighteen dudes: Jose Canseco snaps Mantle's streak at 5, as the Mick finishes 9th while playing in only 103 games due to a herniated disc)

What a career, and he's still just going into his age 30 season. 5 top 3 finishes, 6 top 5 finishes, and 8 top 10 finishes in MVP voting is pretty awesome, and he might have three MVP had it not been for Schmidt, Splittorff, and Mantle. Even if his career ended today (fingers crossed that it doesn't) he's already a HoFer in my book.

New members to the Hall are Johnny Mize, Ty Cobb, Dave Parker, Patrick Corbin, Cecil Fielder and Wade Boggs.

Fielder getting in is a complete mystery. Lifetime .255 hitter, 2241 hits, 1265 runs, 454 home runs, 1427 RBI 41.0 WAR. 38.1 JAWs(HOF~50) Black Ink 32(HOF~24) Gray Ink 124 (HOF~134) HOF Standard 37(HOF~53)HOF Monitor 116(HOF~142). He did have 2 MVP season, 1977 and 1979. In 77 he hit 59 home runs and drove in 161, both league records. 4 career silver slugger awards. He won 4 rings, earning World Series MVP honors in 1977.

Have tons of studs in the league right now, with Ted Williams topping the list. He came in for the 95 season.

Oh and Bob Buhl came in for the 1995 season as well. Not a big, but he's from Saginaw Michigan and my dad went to high school with him. . He also pitched for the short lived Saginaw Bears.
Love the Bob Buhl story. Gives you someone to root for. I've got Bautista trying to pull a Fielder in my league too, but Frank Robinson just went in and he's also a RF who would've pulled all the averages for the HoF up significantly. Also Johnny Callison and Darryl Strawberry are on this ballot, and I have them as HoFers (at least in this universe ), so that should pull the average in RF up too.

Thought I would take a moment and update you on Dave Stieb. He has a 177-91 career W-L record. 3.27 ERA, 120 ERA+ 1813 strikeouts, 40.9 WAR. He pitched for Indianapolis from 84-89. He then signed a free agent deal with the Cleveland Spiders and would pitch for the Spiders from 90-94. 1995, at the age of 32, he signed a 1 year deal to pitch for the Philadelphia Stars. He won 118 games as a starter for the
