The Walker Files: Career OPS has HOF quality
By Tracy Ringolsby
Larry Walker, looking for a major boost in votes in what is his eighth time on the Hall of Fame ballot, has the 14th best OPS among players who have either been enshrined in Cooperstown or are on this year’s ballot.
The only current candidates with an OPS higer than Walker’s .965 are Barry Bonds (1.051) and Manny Ramirez (.996). Also in the top 25 are current candidates Jim Thome (.956), Edgar Martinez (.933), Vladimir Guerrero (.951) and Chipper Jones (.930).
