R.E.D DAD: Hell, the guy even went an entire season without hitting into a double play.

That would have required somebody else on the Astros to get on base, wouldn't it?

This is my reason why he shouldn't be in. Half the internet can't spell his name.

zarberg: Rex_Banner: All those great diving catches that Jim Edmunds made? Andruw Jones also caught those balls. He just got there a couple steps quicker and either camped out under them or caught them on the run

This is precisely why Jeter is not nearly as good defensively as every layman thinks. All those amazing dives, and catch-and-spin throws? Even an average shortstop makes that as a routine play.

Jeter turned routine plays into highlight reel dives and stops.

How dare you. Derek Jeter has 5 Gold Gloves. And they ALWAYS give that award to the right guy.

H31N0US: Donnchadha: Being clutch in one at-bat does not a Hall of Famer make

Yep. And if that changes, I nominate Aaron Boone for the HoF. At least he hit it out, not a dinker over the head of an infielder who was playing too tight.

One at bat? Then Bucky "Farking" Dent.

This is the Hall of Fame. That means you need to be famous to get in. And quite frankly there are only two teams that fit the bill, The Yankees and the Red Sox. If you are not a member of these two squads, you do not belong in the Hall of Fame and are probably taking a Yankee or Red Sox spot, so get out. The rest of the league is like the Washington Generals, irrelevant. Being a part of the Yankees or Red Sox, you had to endure everyone's A game while the other games had inflated stats due to the abundance of inferior talent on these other sub-worthy teams. Steroids are for cheats except for Yankees or Red Sox since they always had gruelling contests, their use was expected. The National League is nothing more than a minor league and as such should be designated AAAA. It is unfortunate when other teams eliminate the Yankees or Red Sox from their rightful place as World Series victors and I firmly believe there should be a juicing investigation of any team that eliminates them.

Yea, I don't remember that hit.  Besides, wasn't Juan Gonzales on the juice?
