1. The article is insider-only, but I have a link to a bunch of screenshots: http://s152.photobucket.com/albums/s197/tkow90/Insider%20Article/
2. Basic idea is that they're using projected career WAR to assign a percentage chance of reaching the HoF based on similar players who have and haven't made it to the Hall. Not surprisingly, King Felix and Evan Longoria have the best chance. Hanley Ramirez has a better than 50% chance (62) as well, but I think he's a crybaby with a bad attitude who everyone should hate and not vote into the Hall. They also looked at people between 10 and 50 percent, with no surprises showing up.
3. The age cutoff is 27, which undercuts our boys by 1 measly year. I assume this is part of an ESPN conspiracy to avoid giving the Mets any type of credit. If (and only if) Reyes signs with someone else, next year the cutoff will most likely be players up to age 28 as well as players aged 29 with last names starting with the letters A-V or X-Z. Of course, this will also discount Rickie Weeks, which is a travesty.
