Should mere numbers be enough for entry into the Hall of Fame? Some say 3,000 hits, 500 home runs, 300 wins, those numbers would be commonplace if players could last 30 years in the big leagues.

numbers should have nothing to do with it.
hell ... it's called the hall of FAME, right? it should just have yankees as members. and the occasional famous non-yankee.

I think your question should be; Should counting stats have a higher impact then ratio stats in judging the Hall of Fame worthiness of a player?

I think this question should also be raised: did the player ever lead the league in any major statistical catagory (hits, HR, RBI, BA for batter, Wins, winning percentage, K's, ERA for pitchers)
