    Johnny Damon, HOF?!

    On PTI this afternoon, Kornheiser said sincerely that Johnny Damon is going to the HOF. Off the top of my head, I can't believe this is anywhere near remotely true. What do you think? Johnny Damon, HOF?

    Before looking up some stats, I gotta say no, but I could be wrong. How about you?

    Not only no, but hell no. He doesn't even get honorable mention IMO.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Not even close, he's more hype.

    Are you sure Kornheiser was serious?

    He played for the Red Sox and now plays for the Yankees, doesn't that automatically make him a hall of famer?
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    To date he's never been injury-prone, so could have a good 8-10 years left as a best-case scenario. Who knows what could happen. As it stands right now, absolutely not.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Wow, a .290 batting average, combined with a .353. OBP and a .786 OPS is sure HOF material.

    He needs to follow the Boggs mold and go play for the D-rays.

    In the context he said it, unfortunately yes. Wilbon immediately questioned him, but then was sidetracked with the whole hype of the Yanks/Sox series. If he were to ever make it into the HOF, he'd no doubt have to go in as a KC Royal!

    He is not even close to any of the magic numbers you need to be mentioned in the HOF discussion. I like Tony's banter with Wilbon but sports is not his strong point.

    Jim Edmonds deserves to be in the HOF a lot more than Johnny Damon does.
