It's interesting to remember, though, that in 1995, the guy who probably had the best odds of being a Hall of Famer (outside of the obvious Eddie Murray) was Baerga. He was doing stuff no second baseman had done in 80 years or so. Another interesting thing: we all remember Baerga falling into the abyss and getting traded in the middle of the '96 season, but it's not like he was hitting a Posada-ish .178 or something. When he traded him, he was only 27 years old and was hitting .267 with 10 homers and 55 RBIs through 100 games. So, on pace for his pretty standard 16 HR, 90 RBI. As it turned out, John Hart smelled the stench of imminent career death and dealt him for a guy who actually wound up being the Hall of Fame second baseman (probably) that Baerga was supposed to be-- Jeff Kent. Go figure.
