Famers on the Fringe, Part II

>> Wednesday

With this year's Hall of Fame ballots due on Dec. 31, ESPN.com takes a closer look at four hotly-debated cases: Jim Rice, Andre Dawson, Bert Blyleven, and Goose Gossage--all players who received more than 50% of the vote last year.

So while they waste their time doing that, we at YCS are here to handle the other end of the spectrum--the guys with no shot.

December 26 -- Scott Brosius and Paul O'Neill
December 27 -- Eric Davis and Devon White
December 28 -- Wally Joyner and Dante Bichette
December 29 -- Bobby Witt and Harold Baines
December 30 -- Jose Canseco and Ken Caminiti

December 27 -- Two Guys Who, uh, Both Played Outfield

Eric Davis

The case for Davis:
Eric Davis made it back to the majors after having colon cancer. That's right--he had cancer. He is a cancer survivor. Who would vote against a cancer survivor? What kind of person would vote against a cancer survivor? That's insensitive and un-American, and you can't do that. What kind of person are you that you would vote against a cancer survivor? Eric Davis had cancer.

The case against Davis:
Eric Davis tried too hard. After he busted his kidney in the 1990 World Series diving for a flyball, his Hall of Fame talent ceased producing Hall of Fame numbers. He serves as a lesson why you should coast on your natural abilities if you have them and leave the risky hustle stuff for Rudy and Eckstein.

Devon White

The case for White:
White has three championship rings, which, as everyone knows, are the true and only measure of greatness for any athlete. Especially in baseball, where individuals can control the entire game at any given instant. Devo was also the first ever Arizona Diamondback to play in the All-Star Game. That's right--the first, which means the best. Plus, he's Jamaican, and his nickname is one of my favorite bands.

The case against White:
Actually, I had nothing interesting or funny to say about Devon White. I'm not sure why I even tossed him into this little gag. Nope...I've got nothin'. Sorry.

Devo finished his career with the 2001 Milwaukee Brewers. The 68-94 Milwaukee Brewers.

I think being on that team is enough of a case against him.
