Short answer: nah.

Then again, these are people who put Ron Santo in, so who the hell knows. I wouldn't vote for him..

A fine career. I like when guys play their whole career with one team. Hope Rivera and Jeter do the same.

Second greatest offensive catcher of his time. That's not something to take lightly.

He offended me constantly! :redneck

There are only 16 catchers in the Hall, and only 3 of those are from the past 40 years (Bench, Carter, Fisk).

I don't believe Posada is in their category. I would have to believe Mike Piazza is a more likely HOF candidate than Posada.

I don't think he is HOF worthy at all. He had a nice career, but his numbers aren't anything special. But the fact he was a Yankee, I bet he gets in...

Unlikely per the HOF meters...

Yes.

He spent his whole career as a Yankee. I bet you he gets in.

Plus, there is no barometer for the Hall of Fame anymore. If fifteen years doesn't cut it, he'll find another way in.

A fine career with solid offensive numbers, but he was nowhere near the level of Ivan Rodriguez in his prime, or Pudge Fisk or Gary Carter.

I say he makes The Hall of Solid Gold.

Elston Howard, whose number was retired by the Yankees, is not in the Hall of Fame.

Thurman Munson would be more deserving.

Of course, we'll remember Jorge from the 2003 All Star Game when he had his little son run onto the field during the player introductions.

He's diserving of the hall of really good guys who played very well, didn't cheat, and checked their ego at the door.
