Which I don't understand. One way or the other he gets in. How long it takes is just a guess. To me being the very best at your position which Vizquel was at least for his era while still being very good offensively is certainly as valid as someone who was very good offensively but average or even ham fisted in the field.
Chicks may dig the long ball but voters should take everything into consideration. Perhaps most do and it's my perception that is wrong.
