Sorry fellow Yankee fans, but Reggie was a one dimentional player who had a couple of great post season series. He sucked in the outfield and alienated his teamates. He was a .265 hitter and holds the alltime record for K's. I don't care about the +500 hrs. Dave Kingman just fell short and you wouldn't put him in, would you?
I don't think you realize how much of a defensive era the 70s were. You should go back and check Reggie compared to his contemporaries.
12 time all star.
10 times top 10 in OPS. 6 times top 5.
10 times top 10 in RBI.
11 times top ten in adjusted ops +, 4 times number 1.
He also happened to be the leader of the A's when they won two World Series in a row.
The guy's a stud. No question.
I rememeber him very well. Watched him play and loved what he did for the Yanks is the post season. It's hard to keep him out, but the man made it in almost unanimously on his first ballot. That's not right. Again, when he played it was all about Reggie and to hell with his teamates. Hit .300 once (barely) and he was a terrible outfielder. I remmeber the trotting after balls in the outfeild very well. I also remember defying the manager when asked to take pitches and move runners over. I don't think jackasses like that belong in the HOF.
