My favorite :,-(

He was a great player, and hope he can take better care of that shoulder now.

Yeah, he was a stud!! I remember playing whiffle ball in the back yard and we had to have a batting stance like MLB players and it was always fun "being" Bagwell!! Wish he could have played a couple more healthy seasons so he would be a shoe in HOFer but we'll see what happens from here.....

Great career. It's a shame that we couldn't see him play in a Red Sox uniform :,-(

I hope he makes the HOF ;-D

He's the all-time leader in HRs for the Astros, isn't he?

I always liked his batting stance too.

He is arguably the best offensive player ever in Astros uni.

Without steroids he's Luis Gonzalez. That is, if Luis Gonzalez wouldn't have used steroids either.

Double dog ditto! :-t

The man with the stance that said "I want to pinch a loaf real bad." I still can't believe he scored 152 runs that one year. Ridiculous.

So who does NOT think that Bagwell should be in the HoF?
