Again homer bias, his 84 and 87 seasons were hall worthy and that's what is etched in my brain.
Absolutely, particularly his career year in '87. Trammell was a phenomenal defender, as well, and people forget that, while it's a relatively small sample, he is one of the all-time great postseason performers. I have him just ahead of Larkin on my list of all-time shortstops.
I know some people like to find 10 "Hall of Fame" seasons for a particular player, and I don't know if you can find that with Alan, but looking at his cumulative numbers, matched with his prime(s) and clutch play, I'm surprised he's not getting more of a push; particularly, on the heels of Larkin's induction.
