I think Allan Trammell deserves to be a HOF 10000%.
The dude played 20 seasons which is beast mode itself.
But, in those 20 seasons he had a carrer avg of .285 (not the best.. but pretty dang good for 20 seasons)
He had a OBP of .330+ over 20 seasons!!! *Again - Beast Mode*
A slugging aver over .420...
he has almost 3000 total hits
scored 1231 times! and he's played in 2,000+ games.
Dude deserves the HOF

Allan Trammel's numbers are extremely foreshadowed by Cal Rikpen's. Barry Larkin experienced this same problem with Ozzie Smith, which is the reason why he doesn't have as many Gold Gloves as he should. Larkin's offense is looked upon a bit more highly because Smith was no Barry Bonds with the bat.

Take a look at Larkin's numbers compared to Smith's:

Barry Larkin


Ozzie Smith


Now look at Cal Ripken Jr. and Trammell's stats compared:

Allan Trammell


Cal Ripken Jr


-----

Right off the bat you can see Larkin was far superior with the bat than Ozzie Smith, and shortstop not being a "power" position he accumulated nine of his Sliver Sluggers easier than Trammell did his three.

Trammell hit only 10 less homeruns, batted 10 points lower in career average, had more hits, and if you look at career AVG/OBP/SLG they matchup like this:

Trammell: .285/.352/.415
Larkin: .295/.371/.444

You put Trammell in the NL throughout his whole career no doubt he accumulates all the accolades Larkin did. Like I have said before, since he had arguably the greatest Shortstop of all time playing at the same time as him, his career accomplishments and numbers are severely overlooked.

If Trammell's and Larkin's numbers are that compareable, why is Trammell still not in the Hall?

Ozzie was in the HOF because of his glove. not bat.
IAWT if Cal got in w/ a lower ba, Allan should get in

Cal got in because he revolutionized the shortstop position while racking up two MVP's, a World Series title, and breaking one of the greatest streaks of all time in baseball. Average means nothing to mean when talking about Cal. He was great for so many other reasons.

Never saw him play, but comparing his stats to the others who are in the HOF he should be in.

DO you think he is not being elected due to not being a house hold name?

He was a house hold name with the Tigers, and if you look at his 1987 season people knew who he was by then.
