What are Tim Raines's Hall-of-Fame credentials? Easy. He was a brilliant baserunner - 808 career stolen bases (5th-most all-time) at an 84.7% success rate - and he was one of the best players in baseball in his prime, which roughly corresponded to the 1980's.

The first table, then, shows the top 10 players in baserunning wins over non-pitcher average among all players for whom I have calculated Player won-lost records.

Put them together and you have a Hall-of-Famer. I'm glad the BBWAA agreed before he fell off the ballot.



All articles are written so that they pull data directly from the most recent version of the Player won-lost database. Hence, any numbers cited within these articles should automatically incorporate the most recent update to Player won-lost records. In some cases, however, the accompanying text may have been written based on previous versions of Player won-lost records. I apologize if this results in non-sensical text in any cases.
