He was voted to what, 3 all star games? He has never been a media favorite. Gary Sheffield and Fred McGriff have about the same stats but have been to atleast twice as many all star games. I'm hoping that he performs enough to make a lasting impression on those that have a vote but I feel without continued success he has a slim chance.

He was only voted to All Stars three time because he bitched and moaned like a baby. They knew he would not go unless he got to start. There are others in the HOF with worse credentials. He is not a slam dunk but he is better than marginal to get in. He played for many seasons and he does have a lot of hits. No way he gets first round votes without 500 HRS but eventually people will gravitate to ability. He is not a fan favorite because of his language skills. He never went for publicity. On the other hand, he gets along well with other players and there is no reason to hate him like a Barry Bonds. Time will decide. I belong in the optimist camp and therefore I think that eventually he will be voted in. I am not ready to sell my cards for a penny a piece. I only wish that you guys would stop bidding so that I can buy at a reasonable price!
