I do wonder though, is the reason nobody cares about the NBA or NFL Hall of Fame precisely because of the lack of public debate. By and large, all the deserving people get in and those that don't, don't. Could making the election process more rational actually lessen interest in the institution?
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
