Hall of Fame Poll: Edgar Martinez

Edgar Martinez - Otto Greule Jr

Would you vote Edgar Martinez into the Baseball Hall of Fame?

Edgar Martinez gets on the ballot for the 5th time. He's been running between 32 and 37% of the Writer's votes and he isn't building momentum.

Edgar played 18 seasons with the Mariners, hitting .312/.418/.515 with 309 home runs, 514 doubles, 1261 RBI. He was on 7 All-Star teams, won 2 batting titles, 1 Roberto Clemente Award, and 5 Silver Sluggers.

He has a 62.9 career offensive WAR, good for 68th place on the all-time list.

There are lot of arguments about whether a DH belongs in the Hall. I don't see any reason DH's should be excluded, but I'm not sure that Edgar has the numbers that earn a spot.
