Default Best Players, Not in the Hall of Fame

Who do you think are the best players that are not in Cooperstown?

Staying true to my Kansas City roots, I would easily say Buck O'Neil and Dan Quisenberry.

Also, Frank White to a lesser extent. He doesn't have the offensive numbers, but his defense was out of this world. Eight Gold Gloves, including six consecutive seasons, merits some consideration.

Andre Dawson - Won a MVP finished second twice. Ranks top 45 in career hits, extra base hits, home runs, and RBIs, 4 Silver Sluggers, 8 Gold Gloves, 314 stolen bases.

Quisenberry was awesome but I think the major issue keeping him out is he was only dominant for about 6 years.

But Quisenberry's top-five all-time Adjusted ERA and his incredible rate of walks per 9 innings pitched, along with his World Series ring should merit enough consideration for the Hall of Fame.
