Happy birthday to Chipper Jones, Omar Vizquel and the still-active Carlos Beltran.
Today's question: How many of those three should make the Hall of Fame?
OK, Chipper is an obvious Hall of Famer, Vizquel and Beltran less so.
Some quick numbers for Vizquel: Most games ever at shortstop; 2,877 career hits; 1,445 runs; .272 average; 11 Gold Gloves; three-time All-Star; career WAR of 45.3.
Beltran: 363 home runs; 1,340 RBIs; 1,356 runs; three Gold Gloves; eight-time All-Star; 308 stolen bases; .333, 16 HR in 51 postseason games; 68.3 career WAR.
