Default A DH in the Hall?

Posted By: Cy 

I was watching the Orioles/Mariners game on the tube and a couple of thoughts struck me as I
watched. First of all, Edgar Martinez is probably the best DH ever. He hits the ball hard, for
good average and has done it for a long time. When he retires, will the writers give him his due
and vote him into the Hall? Or will they make the case that he didn't play a position so he doesn't
deserve a place with the great players of the past?

The second thing I noticed (and I have noticed this many times before) is that the arms of the
outfielders are pitiful. Sure, some are good. But basically, the arms are terrible. Having grown up
in the Pittsburgh area and having watched the rockets of Clemente and Parker, I find the throws to
the infield (barely making it) to be appalling for players in the major leagues.

One last thought I have to throw in here. John Olerud is still playing ball. (Isn't that amazing?)
And, even though his numbers are down, he still has one of the sweetest swings in the game.

Any thoughts?
