I would say no, because he gave up 418 home runs. Other Hall of Famers have allowed more Home Runs than Wakefield;
Robin Roberts 505 (4688.2 IP), Fergie Jenkins 484 (4500.2 IP), Phil Niekro 482 (5404.1 IP), Don Sutton 472 (5282.1 IP), Warren Spahn 434 (5243.2 IP) and Bert Blylevin 430 (4970 IP). However, Wakefield allowed so many home runs in much fewer innings pitched; 3226.1. Compared to the aforementioned players; Wakefield has an ERA of 4.41 whereas none of the HoFers exceed 3.41. Wakefield has similar numbers to David Wells, who allowed 407 HRs in 3439 IP, but Wells' win-loss totals are better with 239-157 versus Wakefield's 200-180. Wells also had a lower ERA 4.13 and WHIP 1.27 than Wakefield's 4.41 and 1.35. In the end Wakefield was just never really dominant enough.

According to Baseball Reference: Tim Wakefield
Hall Of Fame StatisticsPlayer rank in (·)
Gray Ink Pitching - 69 (355), Average HOFer ≈ 185
Hall of Fame Monitor Pitching - 30 (445), Likely HOFer ≈ 100
Hall of Fame Standards Pitching - 26 (190), Average HOFer ≈ 50

Lets put it like this. If Jack Morris, who won the most games in the 1980's, cannot get in because he has a career ERA of 3.90. How does a guy who has a career ERA of 4.40 and hasn't had an ERA under 4 since 2002 get in?
