Okay, it's not Probable at all... but, look at career longevity and his overall numbers... not bad.

So lets put Mark Belanger, Burt Campaneris, Flood, Nettles, Hernandez, Mattingly, Jim Sundberg, etc in the HOF too.

Call the All-Star voting a sham all you want, but if you play 15 years and are only make the Classic 1 time you probably didn't play at a Hall of Fame level. When your most comparable player statistically is Raul Mondesi, when your chances are based on your offensive production and your best season was good for 10th in HR, 8th in RBIs, 9th in Runs you don't really stand a chance in hell.


He seems like a great guy, and has been a good player. But there has never, ever been anything remotely HoF worthy that he has done in his career.

As Tavish said, when your most comparable player statistically is Raul Mondesi, you aren't making the HOF.

Hey, I'm from St. Louis and am hard on home-town guys. We got totally ripped on the Mulder deal and I wouldn't touch him on any fantasy team. Sidney Ponson is a big fat piece of lard who should be carrying Anthony Reyes' jock to the stadium each day -- same thing with Marquis.

But Ozzie Smith was clearly a Hall-of-Famer, just because of his defense. The guy was simply amazing. He made plays that nobdoy else has ever made since.

While the career hitting numbers aren't great, the guy was CLUTCH -- clutch like D. Jeter.

Don't diss on the Wizard. :-)
