No way. He only has 351 career home runs and a .314 career BA. That's not bad but it's not even close to HOF numbers. Add on to that the fact that all HOF voters recognize the difference that Coors makes. He has had a great career but I don't believe it's remotely close to HOF worthy. My 2 cents.

I don't think BA and HR's are the only things that let you in the HOF. Lets say he plays 2 more seasons, and reaches 400 hr's. He also has 200+ SB's, and 1200+ Runs and RBI's. Pretty impressive numbers, but I still agree with you that he won't get in. He never had a GREAT 3-4 seasons in a row where he dominated.

I agree but when your claim to fame is being a power hitter, you gotta excel in those 2 cats. ;-D
