Defensive Studs in the Hall: Did their Value in the Field Make Up for their Lack of Offense?

When a player hits a ton of homers or has an incredibly high batting average over a long period of time, it usually (not always) is an indication that he was a great hitter and perhaps deserves induction into the Hall of Fame. Offensive value is (relatively) easy to spot. Well, how about defensive value?

There are quite a few Hall of Famers that were inducted, for the most part, because of their defense.
