Blech. I'd say the only one who could be seen as a "real" Hall of Famer would be Roberto Alomar, but he's mostly remembered now for spitting in an umpire's face, so that won't help him. Maybe Larkin/Trammell for purely length of service/sentimental reasons, but they don't REALLY deserve to be in.
Hey look - I'm gonna reference myself!!!

One thing that's been lost is that it's the Hall of FAME, not the Hall of Let's Have Baseball Experts Analyze Your Career for The Next Decade. IE your performace should transcend the sport itself, your name should be somewhat universal. I think the test of whether or not you should be voted in should be decided by none other than Sistatime herself. Each year they should read the names of the nominees to my sister, and if she has even remotely heard of your name, you're in. Otherwise, tough doodoo.
