Which active or recent players deserve to be in the HOF. This isn't for griffeys or pedros, but for maybe players.

I just realized that bobby Abreu deserves to be in the Hall. You probably won't get much support, but listen to these numbers. He has a 404 career OBP. He has decent power, stole a lot of bases, doubles, tripled, scored runs, and drove them in. He's 74th all time in Adj. batting runs. And he'll probably move up a dozen more spaces. He deserves to be in the hall.

How about Bernie Williams? He did everything well, as opposed to being a specialized player. He hit for average, hit for power, walked, and was a gold glove winning outfielder.

Kevin Brown? He led the league in ERA twice and finished in the top 5 five times. He threw a ton of innings. He has one of the Best ERA+'s among pitchers since 1900.

Here are some more

Giambi
Berkman
Helton
Biggio
Larkin
Giles
Rolen
Posada
Oswalt
Halladay
