Agreed. Love X, but he has no black ink to date, no significant hardware (silver sluggers don’t really count), and is not a good defensive SS. He’s got almost no shot of making the Hall, even if he remains a very good hitter for another 4-5 years. He’d have to become a BETTER hitter, which is… unlikely.... I don't think X gets in unless he really turns it on the next few years or maintains his 4.2WAR/162 pace into his late 30s. Devers is too young to make a realistic call, but my gut says no as well - not the best 3B in the league, and defensive deficiencies means he's not long for the position either. Maybe he ends up north of 500 home runs, who knows. And don't get me wrong - both are fantastic players, and I hope they both have long and storied careers in Boston. …
