Default OT: Who should be in the Hall that isn't

This is a huge topic of debate, yet fun as I love hearing opinions as to who else should be considered for the Hall.

I am and always will be a monstrous supporter of Jimmy Ryan, and I'm saddened he still isn't considered. But, I digress, who else do you think should be in the Hall (outside of Jackson and Rose)?

This list is for intended on players no longer eligible.

My list is:

Jimmy Ryan (for sure)
Joe Start (borderline)
Dale Murphy (little past borderline)
Bill Dahlen (close to my magic vote)
Dick Allen (borderline, more towards no)
Lou Whitaker (past borderline)
Ted Simmons (close)
Joe Torre (close)
Riggs Stephenson (I would vote for him)

The list will go on, these are the ones I can think of briefly. Because I mentioned them, doesn't mean I think they should be in (except a few), I think we should take a little longer look.

It would be fun to also look at active modern players:

Pujols (Yes)
Miguel Cabrera (Yes)
Jeter (Yes)
Kershaw (looking good)
Mauer (if he can put up a few more good years, Yes)
Trout (way early, but easily on pace)
A-Rod (Yes)
Carlos Beltran (few more years)
Matt Holliday (see Beltran)
David Wright (No)
Longoria and Tulo (stay healthy then maybe)
Felix Hernandez (see Kershaw)
Giancao Stanton (will hit 600+ to get in)
Justin Upton (consistency issues, but if he reverts to MVP form, chances good)
David Ortiz (if he gets in so should Edgar)
Torii Hunter (no, close but very fun to watch him for years)
Alfonso Soriano (see Beltran)
Josh Hamilton (no, damn drugs)
Joe Nathan (no)
Adam Dunn (he will hit 500, but not really 'elite', coin toss for me, but I like him)
Starlin Castro (Yes, he will get 3k+ hits)
Jimmy Rollins (close, please get to 3k)
Ichiro (Yes)
Chase Utley (stay healthy, decent shot)
Ryan Howard (see Utley, pray for 500 HR's, not likely)
Prince Fielder (get back to elite, hit 500+ then in)
Johan Santana (love him, but unfortunately no)
Morneau (if only no concussion, but no)
Peavy (no, loved him in SD)
Lincecum (was good, no)
Freeman, Harper, Machado (too early, health issues except Freeman)
Jayson Heyward (all the tools, no clue what is wrong, Liriano syndrome)
Raul Ibanez (no, thought career was over 7+ years ago)
Mark Buehrle (no, still surprises me)
David Price (need more)
Stephen Drew (no)

Let's make this fun!
