Jason Giambi - Hall a Fame? What say you!

Interesting question, especially w/ the steroid admission.

BUT, look at his career stats. They are definately HOF.

What say you?

Nope. And Im a Yankee fan. And as of right now his numbers aren't even close to HOF.

He's been good, but how are those numbers HOF quality?

He's going to need some more quality seasons before being a HOF player IMO.

HOF??? A self admitted steroid abuser? are you kidding? Not only does G - I am - Bi not have HOF numbers but one could only imagine how many of his present numbers were attained while he was juicing. If you ask me - he is still on something, just hasnt tested positive for it. HOF - Please

Even if he hit 50 hrs per year the rest of his career its still a NO.
Hes a good player but not and elite player. Lets stop putting above average players in the HOF just to put somebody in each year.

Hmmm, after this year if he plays until he's 40 he would need to average 30 hrs a year to get to 500. If he averages 150 hits a year that takes him to 2300. If OBP becomes more valued, and it seems like it is, he probably has a shot. I think it will depend on how well he ages and if the hall voters hold the steroids against him. If you take out the steroids, he would be a borderline strong candidate if he ages well.
