HOF for Dewey?

Dwight Evans is one of the 10 candidates on the HOF “Modern Era” ballot.

Ian Browne discusses his candidacy here:

I’m one of the folks who chanted “Dewey” for the guy, so I am obviously biased in favor of his election.

Objectively, did he need to be on a WS winner to graduate from the Hall of Very Good to the Hall of Fame?

Dewey deserves it, we forget how consistently good he was despite changing his stance weekly.

That’s some tough competition for Evans. Murphy won 2 MVPs and Mattingly won 1 and both won a slew of gold gloves and silver sluggers. Evans WAR is significantly higher though.

The question that begs asking is: “If WAR had been a thing during Dewey’s tenure, would he have walked away with more awards?”
