RE: Hall of Fame Discussion..Everyone is welcome!

I personally don't like Rose but i feel he deserves to be put in the HOF for what he did on the field and not the dugout
True. I cant wait for his record to be broken. I dont like him at all as a person.

RE: Hall of Fame Discussion..Everyone is welcome!
Here is my argument for Maris. Maris won back to back MVP awards in a time he was playing with the likes of Mantle,Mays,Aaron and Kaline etc etc and beat them out which is not a easy feat. then you have his 7 time all star appearances. 3 time world series championships. A gold glove. the fact he still hold the record (Bonds,Sosa,Mcgwire cheated) Thats not including all the AL pennants he won. In 1960 baseball was dying and what he and Mantle did in the summer of 61 no doubt sparked the interest back up so much and got it through the Vietnam war. They can hang his bat in the HOF they can make a display about him but yet the man isn't enshrined in bronze on the wall....and oh yea he never spit on a umpire!!!!

Griffey jr will get in because the sports writers liked him.

Griffey Jr is a first ballot for sure...Easily the most dominant hitter of the 90's and if he stayed healthy, he would have been able to beat Bonds' record.

RE: Hall of Fame Discussion..Everyone is welcome!
evilbob forgot Smoltz when he said Maddux and Glavine. All 3 will be in the HOF soon enough.

On a side note, I saw Rose in Vegas about a year ago and I have to admit, I feel bad for him. He looks very run down and not happy. Just a shadow of his former self. I think most agree he should be in the HOF but I don't think the "powers that be" will give him that satisfaction while Rose is alive.

Fred McGriff
Barry Larkin
Thurman Munson
Lou Whitaker
Alan Trammell

Beyond these guys, I don't think the HOF should be/will be voting many of the incoming crop of roid era superstars in. It wouldn't surprise me to see the HOF shut it's doors for an extended period until the whole steroid mess goes away for good.

lol

Griffey Jr. will be in because he dominated the sport for a decade and has HOF numbers. He is a first ballot guy based on that alone regardless of who liked him.
