Using the Keltner List (a Bill James creation), Westwood Blues takes a look at Will Clark’s Hall of Fame chances.

10. Is he the best player at his position who is eligible for the Hall of Fame?

In The New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract, James ranks Clark as the 14th best first baseman in baseball history. The only Hall of Fame eligible player ranked ahead of Clark who is not already in the Hall of Fame is Don Mattingly. Also, James ranks Clark ahead of Hall of Famers Orlando Cepeda, Dan Brouthers, Roger Connor, George Sisler, Frank Chance, Bill Terry, Jim Bottomley, and George Kelly.

For Giants fans, this qualifies as a must-read.
