    Do we dare ask? His MLB career started in 1996. Too bad we think this way, but it is what it is (to all the non-believers in this MLB reality and freedom of speech lol).

    I doubt he is only 38 as well.

    Yes, Vlad will be a Hall of Famer easily.

    Without a doubt. He hit more HR's on pitches that weren't strikes than anyone I have ever seen. HOF'er for me!

    I say put him in, but Dwight Evans should go in first. Dick Allen too.

    I always enjoyed watching "Vlad the Impaler" at the plate.

    I think he is a HoF'er.

    Vlad is another that will stir the debates and if he makes it will add fuel for the Dick Allens and Dwight Evans etc. I believe he belongs.

    The slash line and HR's are very similar to Todd Helton. Just saying.

    Absolutely, one of my favorite players ever. Didn't give a flip about strike zones; he just ripped it over his head or off a bounce. So fun.

    That is true if no adjustments are made for their respective home parks and playing conditions.
    Guerrero's BA/OBP/SLG/HR line is .318/.379/.553/449.
    Helton's BA/OBP/SLG/HR line is .316/.414/.539/367.

    But Vlad didn't play his home games in Denver. Baseball-Reference.com's stats neutralizer shows their neutralized lines to be as follows:
    Guerrero: .311/.372/.542/437
    Helton: .292/.387/.496/323
    Not nearly as similar.

    As an Ms fan, he was absolutely feared at his peak with the Halos.
