Dewey belongs in the Hall.

An open letter to the MLB Hall of Fame about Dwight Evans' rightful place in Cooperstown - Grantland:


Evans via Boston Sports Then and Now


But of the three, it is my opinion that the most worthy Hall of Fame candidate was Dwight Evans. With a career won-lost contribution of 323-183, Dwight Evans is comfortably above the Hall of Fame line. He contributed to his team in more ways than either Parker or Cedeno, and he had more good seasons — and fewer bad seasons — than either Parker or Cedeno.
I've said it before and I'll say it again ... Dwight Evans has been criminally short-shrifted [tangential etymology] in these discussions.
