Andre Ethier lists eight former Dodgers in the polls for election to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
In 2023, the polls for induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame were released, with 14 players returning from last year’s election and 14 newcomers. Among those 28 players are eight former Dodgers.
Nine years ago, Bobby Oubre was Albert Puhols, who was released by the Angels early in the season and spent the rest of the year in Anaheim with the Dodgers. His 92 games in Los Angeles were mostly uneventful, and his career ended after one season. It is the third consecutive year with 8.7% of the vote.
Andre Ethier spent 12 years with the Dodgers. His final season was in 2017, a single loss in Game 7 of the World Series in Los Angeles, and he was a two-time All-Star and Silver Bat and Gold Glove winner. A fan favorite, Ethier had a career 122 OPS+ and made his debut on the ballot.
Andrew Jones was a powerful four-team baseball player. He also played for the Dodgers. Her time in LA was a mess we wish we could erase from our minds as Elena forgot about Damon’s love after she thought Alaric was dead on The Vampire Diaries . Jones won for the sixth straight year, winning 41.4 last year %.
Jeff Kent has spent the last four seasons in Los Angeles after winning the MVP award with the Giants. In total, Kent hit 377 home runs during his 17-year career. He received 32.7% of the vote in his 10th and final election year and is certain to be out of election after this year.
Manny Ramirez was a phenomenon everywhere, but his Los Angeles stint was cut short by a PED ban. In three seasons with the Dodgers, Manny posted 1,012 OPS and helped them to the 2008 and 2009 NLCS. He is in his seventh year of election and has yet to hit 30%, although his performance deserves the excitement. . It is known that these PEDs form the vocal cords.
Jimmy Rollins was Dodgers shortstop in 2015. He struggled all season and was replaced by rookie Corey Seager in September. Rollins was the Phillies MVP, but he was past his prime in Los Angeles. He received 9.4% of the vote last year, which was his first year in the election.Gary Sheffield is another guy whose stats are clearly feature-worthy but PED-tainted. Sheffield spent four seasons in Los Angeles hitting 129 home runs with 160 OPS+. Overall, he hit 509 home runs in his 22-year career. Vote for the ninth year and get 40.6% in the last two years.
Jason Warth ran for the first time. Early in his career, he spent two years with the Dodgers before becoming an All-Star with the Phillies. He was a solid player, but no one thought of Hall of Famers and he might have been a no-brainer in the election.
The results of the election will be announced in mid-January.
