Detroit Tigers Hall of Fame - 2008 Elections

Recommended Posts

The names below represent pitchers and hitters who hung up their Tigers, Wolverines, or Stars uniforms for the final time by the beginning of the 2008 season, logging at least 300 innings or 1,000 at-bats during their time with Detroit. It also includes non-players who were significant to the organization.

Between these names and the position players below, we will agree upon a list of up to 12 players which will make up the pool of 2008 nominees.

We will be voting on the 2008 nominees as well as the nominees from previous classes who were not elected but who met the minimum vote percentage to remain on the ballot.

We have a few players from the Detroit Wolverines (National League) and Detroit Stars (Negro National League) that have carried over from our special elections in the fall.

Please visit this link for more information on the Wolverines and Stars.

I'm pretty sure I'm filling out the same ballot as I did last time. It's high time Whitehill got in. Henneman was shown during the '05 debates to be every bit the reliever as Hernandez, and Higginson was shown to be superior to several corner outfielders already elected to this Hall of Fame.

The other two (aside from O'Neill) are a bit more questionable, but I have no idea how the other three can be left out given the criteria set forth.

I'd also love to see some debate over Tony Phillips' defensive abilities. Based on BP's numbers, he was superb defensively in his time here, but I know better defensive metrics are out there that I don't have access to. I say given his underrated offensive contributions during his time, if he was even remotely decent at all the positions he played, he should probably be in.

I'll be using all five player votes, and I'm sure we'll be fighting all of this out for the next two weeks, but Ed's post sums it up nicely.

By the way, Jose Lima very nearly madethe ballot as a new candidate. His baseball career is on the ropes and he is facing the chop after a disastrous start in the Korean League.

I have consistently voted for Steve O'Neill, in the non-player section.

Players: I have six guys ranked ahead of Henneman:

Whitehill, Higginson, Tettleton, Phillips, George Wood, and Petry.

I've voted for O'Neill before and will again.

I might vote for Mayo too.

Players I'm still deciding on. Five came to mind pretty quickly, but there are a couple others who could be in that mix too.

Hernandez's induction makes Henneman's candidacy a slam dunk in my mind. I know we'll hear platitudes about championships and MVP's, but the sum total of Henneman's career is superior. That is a fact.

I also hope that people will take a serious look at the Wolverines and Stars on this ballot. Naturally, those who played for the Tigers will have an advantage in a Tigers Hall of Fame, but as it stands I plan to vote for one of the non-Tigers.

A little bit of trivia: Who led the Tigers in WARP-3 every year from 1992-1994?

*WARP Definition from baseballprospectus.com

WARP-1

[ Details ] [ Return To Top ]

Wins Above Replacement Player, level 1. The number of wins this player contributed, above what a replacement level hitter, fielder, and pitcher would have done, with adjustments only for within the season. It should be noted that a team which is at replacement level in all three of batting, pitching, and fielding will be an extraordinarily bad team, on the order of 20-25 wins in a 162-game season.

WARP is also listed on a player's PECOTA card. The PECOTA WARP listing is designed to correspond to WARP-1, not WARP-2 or WARP-3.

WARP-2

[ Details ] [ Return To Top ]

Wins Above Replacement Player, with difficulty added into the mix. One of the factors that goes into league difficulty is whether or not the league uses a DH, which is why recent AL players tend to get a larger boost than their NL counterparts.

WARP-3

[ Details ] [ Return To Top ]

WARP-2, expanded to 162 games to compensate for shortened seasons. Initially, I was just going to use (162/season length) as the multiplier, but this seemed to overexpand the very short seasons of the 19th century. I settled on using (162/scheduled games) ** (2/3). So Ross Barnes' 6.2 wins in 1873, a 55 game season, only gets extended to 12.8 WARP, instead of a straight-line adjustment of 18.3.

For most hitters, at least, it is just that simple. Pitchers are treated differently, as we not only look at season length, but the typical number of innings thrown by a top starting pitcher that year (defined by the average IP of the top five in IP). We find it hard to argue that pitchers throwing 300 or more innings a year are suffering some sort of discrimination in the standings due to having shortened seasons. This why Walter Johnson has almost no adjustment between WARP-2 and WARP-3, while his contemporaries Cobb, Speaker, and Collins all gain around 7 or 8 wins.

I've been taking a close look at Henneman versus other relievers. I tend to favor WHIP over ERA for relief guys.

Adjusting WHIP's for league averages, it appears that Henneman was very good in '88 and his one-third season of '95 (pre-trade), also above average in '87 and '92. Basically he has 3 1/3 "above average" seasons, 3 "average" years, and two "poor" years"

For sake of comparison, Todd Jones had one "good" seaon in '06, five "average" seasons, and one "poor" season.

It should be noted that Mike usually threw more innings per season that Jones did, but that was expected in his day, one could argue.

But the only signficant difference between the two, IMHO, are Henneman's 1988 and 1992. It's hard to use 1995 since he only threw 29 innings before the trade. Jones' 2006 is fairly equivalent to Mike's 1987.

If Jones has a decent 2008, a Henneman induction could open the door a crack for Todd Jones. I'm really struggling to find a good standard for inducting relievers.

In all honesty I'm probably more sold on Al Benton then I ever was on Willie Hernandez, since Benton also turned in some good work as a starting pitcher. I tend to value closers less than starters but they should be represented in our HOF. We really haven't had a Gossage, Fingers, or Sutter, but Henneman did a decent job for the Tigers. Clearly he wasn't nearly as good as some of his contemporaries like Henke, but I need to study that further and compare Mike against other closers of his "era".

Hiller was a no-doubter for me, but he had more innings and did some work as a starting pitcher, plus his great relief work. But I'm still on the fence with Mike and wasn't that impressed with Willie, after his fantastic 1984.

A little bit of trivia: Who led the Tigers in WARP-3 every year from 1992-1994?

*WARP Definition from baseballprospectus.com

The answer is Tony Phillips, who was an 8-10 WARP3 player during each season with the Tigers. How impressive is this? The only three players to exceed 8 WARP3 last season were Curtis Granderson, Magglio Ordonez, and Placido Polanco. The only three players to exceed 8 WARP3 in 2006 were Carlos Guillen and Curtis Granderson.

I am in the process of trying to find single season all-time data for WARP3 to show where Phillips' seasons rank. I think he's worthy, and as soon as I can present data to show that he is, I'll post it.

I didn't set out to campaign for Tony Phillips, but the numbers I have presented may speak for themselves. The only thing I wonder about with Phillips, and somebody may need to help me out on this... Will a number like WARP be thrown off at all by a multi-positional player?

And those numbers you posted reflect reasonably well of Mr. Whitehill as well. :classic:

They show how close Petry and Whitehill are in some respects.

Each have one 6 season. Each have two more 5 seasons.

My support of Whitehill has wained a bit over the years... I'm still voting for him in proxy and would urge others to do the same.

That tells you how bad my memory is or how hard first impressions are. I thought you were one of the consistently strong Whitehill supporters.

I was, and still am... Frankly, I've come around a bit and he's gone from a shoo-in to borderline. I'm voting for him this time purely because Brian doesn't get to vote anymore, and wanted him to get in very badly. It's as simple as that. While I have my own opinions, I also had the opportunity to go ballot by ballot with him about a week before the tragedy, and am using my recollection of that discussion as additional criteria.

I thought I'd compile these numbers, especially for our new committee members, to give people an idea how close (or far) our '08 nominees have come to induction thus far.

The table below illustrates the best showing for each nominee, along with the election in which it occurred.

Of course, if a candidate appears on 75% or more of the ballots in an election, he is inducted.

I think I'm going to realistically have to include Petry as well given the similar numbers between he and Whitehill and now thanks to some good posted data in this thread, I'm seriously considering Tony Phillips as well. From the beginning I've been torn with Henneman.

Higginson is also tough for me. You have one terrific season in '96, two very good seasons in '97 and '00 and then you have '99 and his last three years where he was a below average major league player. I think based on that career OPS+ number I would exclude him but he did play 11 seasons in Detroit and often was the lone bright spot in some dark times which makes him an endearing choice. O'Neill and Whitehill are on my ballot, but these other guys still need some thought. I could include two of them or no one, still not sure.

Mother always told me not to average averages, but I couldn't resist looking

at some of Mike Henneman's contemporaries, and averaging their A.L. season WHIP's

during the period of 1987-1995. Here's a list (average first, then individual season WHIP's):

Eckersley 0.97 (1.00, 0.87, 0.61, 0.61, 0.91, 0.91, 1.19, 1.40, 1.27)

N. Charlton 0.97 (1.13, 0.82)

Tom Henke 1.06 (0.93, 1.24, 1.02, 1.03, 0.87, 1.11, 1.10, 1.18)

B. Harvey 1.14 (1.04, 1.40, 1.24, 0.86, 1.15)

R. Aguilera 1.16 (1.13, 1.07, 1.16, 1.02, 1.50, 1.07)

Duane Ward 1.18 (1.44, 1.33, 1.12, 1.05, 1.13, 1.03)

J. Reardon 1.20 (1.22, 1.14, 1.10, 1.13, 1.18, 1.42)

Montgomery 1.20 (1.34, 0.99, 1.22, 1.23, 1.07, 1.01, 1.41, 1.29)

R. Hernandez 1.21 (0.91, 1.09, 1.32, 1.52)

Dan Plesac 1.22 (1.08, 1.11, 1.04, 1.42, 1.42, 1.25)

Gregg Olson 1.23 (1.21, 1.18, 1.40, 1.14, 1.22)

Doug Jones 1.23 (1.37, 1.02, 1.10, 1.04, 1.64)

Lee Smith 1.26 (1.30, 1.22, 1.17, 1.36)

J. Russell 1.27 (0.95, 1.54, 1.22, 1.21, 1.13, 1.45, 1.38)

Doug Henry 1.28 (0.83, 1.35, 1.67)

M. Schooler 1.29 (1.48, 1.30, 1.12, 1.01, 1.53)

Steve Farr 1.30 (1.55, 1.26, 1.53, 1.15, 1.10, 1.01, 1.53)

M. Henneman 1.32 (1.20, 1.05, 1.50, 1.30, 1.36, 1.22, 1.41, 1.73, 1.13)

Bobby Ayala 1.32 (1.20, 1.45)

Steve Olin 1.34 (1.32, 1.36, 1.49, 1.21)

D. Righetti 1.45 (1.45, 1.41, 1.44, 1.40)

Joe Grahe 1.56 (1.31, 1.39, 1.99)

Henneman was clearly near the top for longevity. However only four of his nine seasons yielded WHIPs either at or below a “typical” closer of that time period.

Henneman was clearly near the top in for longevity. However only four of his nine seasons yielded WHIPs either at or below a “typical” closer of that time period.

Is that supposed to be damaging to his candidacy?

His resume still trumps Hernandez's.
