  1. Oldindian33hater:

    Look in Mike D. ‘s article under Cleveland Offense Who’s Hot! Watch out! HOF

  2. Yeah, it’s desperate . Even with 3,000 hits. I’m not sure he deserves the HOF?

    • What is so great about 3,000 hits? How many have 3000 hits now…25-35 players? If that many players have that many hits, why is it such a big deal? Being a lead-off hitter cuts down the time it takes to get to 3,000 hits otherwise it takes about 20 years to get there. Hell, even A-Rod and Cano will have 3,000 hits before they are done.
      It’s nothing to do with hating a player, it has to do with the integrity of the HoF. The same as you saying; A-Rod shouldn’t be in the HoF. It is your opinion and mine is mine, not hate. :(

  3. TWASP thinks Arod should definitely be in HOF he’s one of the best players of all time. And right up there with Mays and Mantle as the best 5 tool players.

  4. What is great about 3000 hits is that with all the thousand and thousands that have played the game only 25- 35 have done it. HOF rewards longevity and production. Though the fact that Damon only made the All Star team twice leads one too believe that he was not a dominant player of his era and longevity alone should not get him into the HOF.
