We’re big fans of Davey Concepcion here at Redleg Nation. While we realize the question of whether Concepcion deserves to be in the Hall of Fame is not a slam-dunk on either side, we’d still love to have seen Davey enshrined (and still hope to) in Cooperstown. What can I say? We’re Reds fans, and we’re selfish like that. We’d like to see as many Reds as possible in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
On that note, Joe Posnanski has an interesting post here (start at the second paragraph) about Concepcion. As a starting point, he compares Concepcion to Omar Vizquel, who — incredibly — is generating some HOF buzz. Give me Concepcion over overrated defender Vizquel any day of the week.
