Default Bagwell HOF today??

Is today the day he finally gets in? Statistically speaking he is one of the top 3-4 first baseman of all time. Before the haters come out, I'm talking about FIRST BASEMAN, not first baseman/DH. Considering he played the prime of his career in the cavernous Astrodome where homeruns went to die, and the fact his career was over at age 35, he still put up some Astronomical numbers (pun intended).

Bagwell deserves it for sure. Can't believe Pudge's numbers are a lot higher than that though. He's a no-brainer for the HOF.

Bagwell gets in I think! Definitely deserving. I think Pudge's lack of support is due to PED suspicions.

I was listening to Tim Kurkjian talk yesterday and he said he was shocked it has taken this long for Baggy to get in. He said with the stats Bagwell put up, that his career could put in the argument for one of the Top 5 1B of All-Time. That is a pretty bold statement from Kurkjian.

I have always though that if Frank Thomas was in, Baggy needed to be in as well.

We went to Cooperstown when Biggio was inducted and we will do the same this summer if Bagwell makes it, which it looks like he is lock to make it at this point.

If you haven't been, go check it out. Cooperstown is a very COOL place.

What about Bagwell's PED suspicions?

For the record, he deserves it in my book.

Kinda weird to see Bonds and Clemens so low. 15 years ago they were sure fire HOFers.

Suspicions shouldn't keep someone out, but that's why it's taken so long for him to get in even if the suspicions were unfounded. There has never been anything linking him to steroids other than the fact that he bulked up in the mid-late 90s. None of the reports that came out had his name in them, none of the credible accusations had his name in them, nothing. He should have been in years ago.

He admitted to taking Andro back in the 90's. It was not a banned substance at the time but is today. He never popped a drug test and wasn't mentioned in the Mitchell Report but suspicion is what has kept him back regardless.

I sure hope he gets in, he deserves it for sure.

with bagwell it was never more than a few people who were supicious,,, he came in hitting them hard and running very good,, his body size did not ballon like bonds and sosa did, virtually overnight,,, i like pudge but i do suspect him,,, primarily for the weight he dropped real fast late in his carrier

I hear arguments for it but I just don't get Raines as a HOF. He is a nice player but don't think he is worthy.
