    do you think these players will be in the hall of fame someday?

    jim edmonds (many gold gloves)
    greg vaughn (his 50 homer season was overshadow by big mac and sammy)
    harold baines - he was a hit machine for 20 years
    kenny lofton - closing in on top 10 all time in stolen bases
    luis gonzalez (almost 40 and no signs of slowing down)
    jeff conine (check his stats, you might be surprised. he had put togethe a nice career)

    i'll post my list of pitchers later.

    i see harold baines getting in someday. everyone ahead of him on career hits list is in, or will be. (not sure about raffy).

    lofton is still going strong. if he retired now, no but 5 more good years and it will be a nobrainer.

    when greg vaughn gets into the hall of fame, the hall of fame should close up shop for good.

    vaughn is a career .242 hitter with 355 home runs.

    anyone who thinks this qualifies him for the hall of fame, despite three monster seasons, knows nothing about baseball or misunderstands the concept of a hall of fame.

    his three monster seasons came during the height of the steroid era but even if they hadn't, his numbers are not even close to meriting hall of fame recognition.

    Perfect, casty.

    Now, let's talk Blyleven... ;)

    It's the Hall of Fame, not the Hall of Very Good.

    How about Jim Thome? Should get 500 HR, but nowhere near 3000 hits.

    My guess would be no.

    No to those guys, unless Luis Gonzalez plays till he's 50.

    But Jon Saraceno is a lock to make the writers/broadcasters wing.

    McGwire should be.

    Bonds will be barring something crazy.

    Perhaps a town down the road from Cooperstown could establish a Hall of Very Good?

    Damn, it seems like I'm always battling you for the low-hanging fruit. You won this round.

    And a million times no on any of them. And on Blyleven.
