Debating the pros and cons of a player’s Hall of Fame chances is without a doubt one of the most controversial issues in baseball.

For example, how much do stats matter? What about longevity?

And should a player’s attitude, whether positive or negative, have any impact?

Then there’s the all-important question of steroids, and how much they should affect a player’s chances.

Taking all of the above into consideration, I evaluated the careers of fifteen players and ultimately picked a yes or a no for the Hall of Fame.

11 of the players are still playing.

Two are free agents but not yet retired.

And the other two hung up their cleats, and will be eligible for the Hall of Fame in a few years.
