Belle is my favorite player of all time and should be in the hall. He is the RBI king of the 90's, and his numbers from 91-2000 are bar none. Joe Dimaggio never talked to the media either, or Steve Carlton. If there wasn't a strike in 94', he probably would have had the best year anyone had ever seen to that point, and would have given Maris' record a run.
I think its awful that because of one's appearance to the media that they should get cut short of the HOF. Take Michael Irvin, he didn't get in but deserved to, I know he's crazy, but so is everyone else in football, not just him. Belle's the same way. The Hall of Fame should be about the best players, not just pretty good players that media likes.
BTW Yardbirds., is that sig pic from his first home run with the Orioles, back on opening day? Anyway, I really like it
