    Default Official 2041-2042 Hall of Fame Discussion: Osvaldo Lueras

    Osvaldo Lueras


    Lueras was a defensive wizard at SS who plated for 21 seasons. Won gold gloves in 2026, 2027, and 2029. In his prime Lueras's offensive value was encased in an OBP that could run north of .380. His candidacy will be the test of whether defensive accumen can sway FOBL voters. I can say that LOS often coveted him.

    Leuras was passed to the second ballot, so he will be eligible for another round of votes.

    Almost certainly underrated by my All-FOBL honors, because I couldn't include defense in a big way until 2037, well after his prime. With that said, 3 Gold Gloves are scant evidence that he was Ozzie Smith with the glove, and with a 94 career OPS+, he needed to be Ozzie Smith to get my vote. Another paragon of consistency, and career-emphasis voters should give him a long look. I'll likely take a pass.
