I feel quite confident in Smoltz making the hall.

I know, I'm biased, but what about Schilling?

Without turning this into ANOTHER Bonds thread, he was a HOFer BEFORE any of this steroids stuff even came to be. Remember 500/500?

Anyways, back to the topic at hand...

Pedro certainly can be added to that list. I also feel very comfortable saying that Pujols will end up being on that list. He just has had a start to his career unlike any other player in history, and barring major injury could end up in the discussion of the top players ever.

Derek Jeter

Even if you hate him, he's the Yankee captain of the dynasty. He'll retire with a .300+ avg, 3000 hits, possibly 300 HR, and a few gold gloves.

Torre didn't make it in on the first ballot, he only got 11% of the vote.

LaRussa and Cox just weren't good enough to stick around long enough to even make the ballot. ;-)

Pujols hasn't played ten years yet, so don't add him yet.

Edit: The original poster said Ken Griffey, Jr.

I don't think anyone mentioned Manny Ramirez yet.

He may not get in first-ballot because he started his career late, played half of it as a DH, and on top of that he played all of it in a pitcher's park, but Edgar Martinez is a surefire first-ballot HoFer in my opinion.

I wouldn't really say Edgar Martinez and Manny Ramirez are comperable at all.
