Carew.

If nothing else, for his reference in "Sure Shot" by The Beastie Boys.

I'm pretty sure the voters get a sabermetric breakdown along with the ballot.  I think personal bias plays a large role in the voting.  There is no fucking way Piazza is a HoFer and Raines isn't.

I'm hoping Raines jumping from 55% to nearly 70% puts him over the top for next year. He might be the single most ridiculous HoF exclusion in any sport right now.
