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.

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!!!!!!!!!

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

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
