    Has anyone noticed...

    ... that no one has worn #44 since Dunn was traded? On the other hand, #3 has remained in use. Yet #44 has just been passed right over.

    Who'd want to wear it? It's bad luck from a bad player.

    Doesn't Eric Davis wear it when he is in uniform as a part-time coach?

    Ah. Forgot about this. Well, no player's worn it since the trade. Anyone think it will eventually be retired for Davis and/or Dunn?

    Also, Nuxy's #41 is still in use (worn by, of all people, Mark Berry, although Affeldt wore it before him). Anyone think this one will be retired?

    The only number that hasn't been retired but eventually will be is 11. 14 would if Pete weren't banned, but who knows maybe they will retire it the day after he dies. A travesty that elite Judge Smells boys club won't let him in.

    Yeah, no one's worn #14 since Pete except Pete, Jr., so it's unofficially retired.

    500 clean home runs makes you a lock. He'll get to 500, maybe 550 or 600.

    I still dont think he gets enough respect from writers to make it even close, let alone in.

    Agreed. He won't be a hall of Famer. Unless he goes to the Yankees in the next year or so, he won't be a Hall of Famer. He won't get 40%.

    He doesn't deserve it any more than Dave Kingman does.

    Though he deserves it 10 times more than McGwire, Sosa, and guys like that do.

    I agree everyday and twice on Sunday, None of the above or spoken of in this thread "should" get in.

    But McGwire and Sosa did save baseball.

    I'd actually say Dunn has a 50/50 chance. If he keeps up his home run pace -- about 35 hr/yr for his career, and 40 hr/yr for the last 6 yrs -- for 8 more years, he'll hit 600, and that would get even Dunn in. I know "big" guys like Dunn tend to wear down in their mid-30's, but look at it this way: if he hits 40 hrs the next four years he'll be 126 HR away from 600 at age 34. If he plays until he's 40, thats roughly 20 HRs per year. Certainly WELL within the realm of possibilities, and 600 HR gets even a player with Dunn's reputation into the hall.
