Good article on ESPN by way of USS Mariner on why Martinez should be a valid candidate for the Hall of Fame.
Edgar Martinez was before my time. I never saw him play in person (at least, not that I can remember), I was never able to fully appreciate him in the way that a lot of Mariners fans did, do, and always will. But I’m pretty sure I can settle this issue…
How many designated hitters have streets named after them?
There. Stamp it. Done.
EDIT: I would also like to add that Edgar Martinez Drive leads directly to I-5, which leads to both Canada and Mexico; so Edgar Martinez unites all the Americas. Chew on that, Hall of Fame voters!
