Hall Of Fame Candidates

Season 11 rolls around for our world. Amazingly there is one glaring hole in the legacy of it, though it is still relatively young.
There is not a single player in the hall of fame.
Now, some would say that it is too soon for the world to have HOF players.
However if you consider the first 6-7 seasons of the world, there were several impact players who were elite but simply were too old to keep it up over the long haul.

Clarence Carr for example. Was the most dominant pitcher in the world's history. The problem is however, his career on dominance was cut short by injury and age.
If you map out his career over 10-15 seasons of healthy ball. He would be the most untouchable player in HC history.

Now we have 6 players who will get heavy consideration for the hall this season.
The problem is, do you consider being elite for a short but faltering due to age or injury as a hall of famer.

Or do you subscribe to the theory that you have to be elite over a long period of time to even be considered a hall of famer.
It's your choice. But for your consideration. Here is the case for the top HOF prospects for this season.
