oh hell yes. If he doesn't make it, I will no longer accept any HOFers. He was clean, he was absolutely one of the most talented players in the history of the game, he was just hampered by injuries. But no one really focuses on the injuries. They should be focusing on what he did do, DESPITE the injuries he had.

Junior is without a doubt a first ballot HOFer. He was consummate professional with amazing ability and a great attitude. Even though the second half of his career was plagued by injuries; and he still managed to hit 630 home runs and drive in 1836 RBI.

Absolutely. He is one of the few guys who played in the Steroid Era whose numbers were not questioned.

The more appropriate question would have to be, "Is Junior NOT a first ballot hall of famer?" Which, most of us still think he will be, but I would think more people would disagree, which would create more noes.

The guy had one of the sweetest swings in the game. He could also play the hell out of the outfield. He is definitely a 1st ballot HOFer.

Don't know how I never responded to this, but Griffey is a lock for the HOF. Anything other than getting in 1st ballot would be a shame.

Yes indeed! Its a shame he was hurt as much as he was but even with all the injuries his numbers are impressive. He was my child hood idol eventhough I was not even a Mariner fan.
