The Case For Cooperstown ’14: Edgar Martinez

"I think everything that surrounds the discussion of whether or not Edgar Martinez is pretty fascinating. On one hand, we have the fact that he was a designated hitter. Is someone who doesn’t play the field valuable enough to his team where he should be considered for the Hall? I say yes, but he better be a damn good hitter, because defense matters in baseball (this seems to be the common point of view). So if you agree that DH’s should be allowed in, was Martinez a good enough hitter to warrant a vote? This, once again, brings up the argument of traditional versus advanced metrics."
