A few other notes that wouldn't fit at the top: I chose to cut off at 100, as players with a score above that are considered a "good possibility" by the measure (over 130 means "a virtual cinch"). It also probably goes without saying but this measure considers only 1) statistical achievements (so steroid allegations mean nothing) 2) to date (so expected future achievements mean nothing). The entire formula is explained on baseball-reference.

Even as a Red Sox fan, I am surprised that Nomar got on this. Also, just so you know, you have misspelled "monitor" on the website name or whatever that is called.

great quiz-- would be nice if the voters actually voted along these lines--- guys like Fred McGriff and Tim Raines would be in and most of the players mentioned above would have a good shot. The whole reason for a player to get in is what he did on the field-- and as far as the steroids go, they were not banned by baseball while many of the players were supposedly using.

No, steroids were banned in baseball at least since 1991, when Fay Vincent sent a memo to all teams "reminding" them that players were already forbidden from taking illegal substances. There was simply no mechanism available to the league to punish any players using.
