Always loved Tim Raines game.  IMO hard to argue with his numbers.  From 1981 - 1992 played on some horrible teams and still managed to put up very impressive numbers.  Doesn't get the attention he deserves because of the teams he played for during the best years of his career.  Look at the number for 162 games played for his career.  HOF caliber without a doubt.

 Darn right he should be in. He swiped 800 odd bases! There aren't many guys who have that to their credit. He also hit for quite a high average during the first 7 years or so of his career and ended up with a solid BA overall at the end. He was plobably the second best leadoff man in the majors behind Henderson in the 80's. Definitely the premier lead off guy in the NL. A real impact player, it should really be a no brainer. Maybe he hasn't gotten in yet because he played his best years in Monteal, just like The Hawk. Maybe a slight bias there....just maybe.
