Well gambling was illegal. I believe he should be in as well but I can understand why others don't

Jeter up in 2020 ... IMO he won't get 100%

Mo was the best ever at his position ... Jeter clearly not the best shortstop ever and many of his stats might be perceived by some as "accumulated" over a long 20 year career.

He did win 5 Gold Gloves but was often criticized in his later days because he had lost range.

My problem will be when Papi gets in because of his popularity. His steroid abuse has been conveniently forgotten while others are paying the price.

Clemens received 59.5% of the vote ... Bonds 59.1%, barely up from last year

IMO they don't deserve to get in. They cheated. And Yes there are guys that got in that cheated, but, were never caught.

Ortiz shouldn't get a pass just because he isn't hated like Bonds and Clemens.

He was very good but on some of the best teams ever surrounded by talent.

Take away the rings and was a Twin / Padre / White Sox / Met ...

Top tier average player.


Coming from a Yankee fan.

Yeah he’s not shit or anything. He was good. He wasn’t great....but he was great “in the moment”. Like you said he was the beneficiary of being on some great teams that allowed him to have a chance to have some big clutch memorable moments, and he made the most of those.

Halladay should be a lock Blue Jay hat. It's not even close.

When i think of Mussina, i think Baltimore, but that one is a little more understandable.
