BASEBALL: Trammell and Whitaker

I continue to believe that Lou Whitaker belongs in the Hall of Fame. Mike Carminati presents a Win Shares table and arguments in favor of Whitaker's double play partner, Alan Trammell, and a Win Shares chart for Whitaker as well (the real surprise on that table isn't Whitaker and Bobby Grich hanging even with the immortals - it's Willie Randolph right there with them). I guess I'm less sold on Trammell because of his frustrating inconsistency (the polar opposite of the metronomic regularity of Whitaker's career), but there's definitely a good argument that the two belong in Cooperstown together.
