Under-28 players on HOF career tracks
Felix Hernandez and Evan Longoria have best chances among current players
By the time a player reaches his peak, usually in his late 20s, you have a pretty good idea where his career is heading. While there are always exceptions, if a player hits 30 and doesn't look to be on any kind of a Hall of Fame trajectory, chances are he never will be. Today's honorees were no exception -- through their 27th birthdays, Bert Blyleven already had 136 wins and a 2.81 ERA to match, and Roberto Alomar already had nearly 1,500 hits, five Gold Gloves, and six All-Star appearances.
