He played in the major leagues from 1915 to 1930.

Highly overrated, but still a very good player, so yes.

A fine player who history has not been kind. His WARP3 score of 79.8 isn't exactly HoF quality, but it is drug down by an eye affliction that caused him to miss the 1923 season and bothered him the rest of his career. His seven year peak of 382 RCAA is compelling evidence of his quality as a hitter. He had a career OPS+ of 124. Also, reputedly, a marvelous 1B.

I echo Lee. Overrated player who hit singles, not a lot else. Still, he was quite a player until he was struck with sinusitis at age 30; he missed the entire season and was average thereafter. Pitched 111 innings and amassed 5 RSAA, a better ratio of RSAA to IP than Catfish Hunter, Red Ruffing, and Early Winn, to name three HOFers.
