The Young Guns

This article was meant to highlight the guys who currently have the most impressive Hall of Fame resumes, but it is still fun to speculate about the futures of young players who have not had time to compile the career statistics necessary to warrant obvious inclusion. Injuries do happen, no matter how difficult it is to envision one of these players suffering a substantial, career-threatening blow.

I have limited this list to players with at least four years of major-league experience, because that it at least enough time to gauge whether or not a player belongs in the major leagues. So here are just a few of the young players who have started their careers in Hall of Fame fashion:
