The Final Cut: Hitters and the RLWHF

170 hitters made it through the filter lineup. That gives the Ray Lankford Wing of the Hall of 179 members total, before pitchers are thrown into the equation. Now that hitters are out of the way (once I put them into the actual Hall) I can get started on pitchers. I think I've decided on a 4-man rotation to base my pitchers off of, as well as a trio of closers whose Win Shares I'll average out and use to compare other closers and relievers too. I'm just glad to see this project finally getting off the ground...but now I must bury my face inside Total Baseball 2003 edition once more and uncover the pitchers who fit my criteria. For now though, lets check out the fruits of my labor thus far:

Note: WS is Win Shares, and JAWS is JAffee Warp Score, which focused more on the players peaks rather than total career value, which was Win Shares job.

I noticed something while going through the hitters portion...there were a handful of pitchers (such as Smokey Joe Wood) who were excellent with the bat and their defense, and the combined Win Shares they accumulated in their careers both pitching and hitting were Hall of Fame worthy. I was wondering if I should add a separate section for those who did both of these things pretty good, or if I should just incorporate them with whatever it is they actually had more value in. I'm not sure how I'd figure that out, but after the regular pitching is out of the way through my Filter Rotation and Filter Bullpen, I'll see what I can do.
