The Baseball Hall of the Very Good by Egantx7

Question 10

A 0.312 career batting average should get you serious consideration for a free trip to Cooperstown, but when you are billed as a great power hitter and you only manage 309 home runs in 18 seasons, people get a little suspect. 7 All-Star selections and 5 Silver Slugger Awards are generally all good. How is this guy not going to Cooperstown? Frankly, spending 1403 of your 2055 career games as "designated hitter" can really hurt you unless you are doing Frank Thomas levels of hitting, which this guy did not. Identify this designated hitter who played from 1987 to 2004, and is likely not going to be in the Hall of Fame, no matter what Seattle fans think.
