Aaron was never a dominant player, he was one of the most consistent players to play the game. Time to move him over to the lesser player Hall.
From 1955 to 1973 Hank Aaron recieved MVP votes, once winning it. Aaron won two batting titles, three gold gloves (back when they meant something), was a 21-time All-Star, led the league in slugging % four times, OPS three times, runs three times, hits twice, total bases eight times, doubles four times, homeruns four times, RBIs four times, not to mention the fact that he was a 30/30 player, is the all-time leader in homeruns, rbis, extra base hits, and total bases. Yep, he and Rafael Palmeiro are very similar
Here's a list of what Palmeiro has led the league in:
1990 - Hits, Singles
1991 - Doubles
1993 - Runs
