...along with former Mgr Whitey Herzog and Doug Harvey. I support Andre's induction because although it seems the bar has been risen on the number of HRs needed to all but ensure induction into the HOF, Andre was clean and played most of his career when 400 HRs meant an automatic induction (for anyone not named Dave Kingmancwm27.gif ) - therefore, those are the considerations sports writers should look at when voting.

 

But anyway, to Andre...clapping.gifclapping.gifclapping.gif

Dawson was a good tough player and good guy . but his induction shows that there is more consideration of someone by the voters than just how good he was . sometimes these honors and awards are given on a personal level and how the voters feel about someone . i'm including seasonal awards also .

View PostI think the 400+ hr's added with the number of steals puts him into an elite class (I think only 3 players total) which should lead to an HOF induction.

 

yea until arod steals another base. this was actually a question during todays yankee game
