Newsday "debates" Biggio's HOF candidacy

Looking for some outrage today? Newsday had a little "debate" over Craig Biggio's Hall of Fame candidacy.

My favorite Pro:
During his career, Biggio was a seven-time All-Star, won five Silver Sluggers and four Gold Gloves and finished in the top 16 of MVP voting five times.

My favorite Con:
While Biggio was a prolific hitter, he was only a good player (no top 3 finishes in MVP voting) and he doesn't have much else to commend him to the Hall.

It's a debate, so presumably the point of the column is to say that there are qualities for and against certain players. But it's fun when one of your points for why a player isn't a Hall of Famer can be answered simply by scrolling back up to the top of the column.
