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.

Griffey did it the right way. No PED's

I loved him also, but I'm afraid with all those injuries that took his numbers down he might not make it on the First Ballot.
Think of what his career would have been like without all those injuries!!!!!!!!!

He would have broke many records but I still feel like he get in on his first chance. Does anyone knoe when he is eligable?

I am not sure when he is eligible but when the time comes I say yes without a doubt!

Waiting period is 5 years unless in case of death when it goes down to 6 months.

CoachJohn21 01-02-2011 03:29 PM

SO I guess it will be 2016 since he retired last year. Cool thanks Dolly

And you know while I can't change my vote I think I may have changed my mind. Because I was just thinking Jr. has never been tainted like so many other ballplayers of his time and I'm sure that is going to be a big PLUS for him. As indeed it should be :)

He was a clean player I think that matters.
