John Sickels has this retrospective on the career of our very own Barry Larkin. His conclusion about Larkin’s Hall of Fame credentials:
Reese, Appling, and Schoendienst are Hall-of-Famers. Trammell, Concepcion, Fernandez, Phillips, and Dahlen were all better than some guys in the Hall. Larkin should be a slam-dunk given his longevity and across-the-board contributions.
Read the entire post, and the comments. Most seem to agree that Larkin should be a Hall of Famer.
For what it’s worth, that’s the official position of Redleg Nation, too.
