Ok lets see:

I play 1st base

I have 369 home runs as of 2005

I have an OPS around .950

I have 1200 rbis

and OPS+ of 142

am a 2 time all star

1000 runs scored

and I turned 34 this year

Who am I?

If I were to get run over by a bus today would I be a hall of famer?

If not, do you suspect I will build up a resume worthy of the Hall?

If not, is it ok if I call you a jerk?

I doubt Delgado gets in if he gets hit by a bus today. 2-3 more years with his current output and I think he's a no-brainer. Not yet though.

I like Delgado a lot. This year could finally be the year that he is showcased on the big stage, which will boost his credentials for the Hall.

I say he's in, but not on the first ballot.

3-4 more seasons and he will have Hall worthy numbers if he keeps his averages.

Probably very close right now. A couple more big seasons and he goes from good chance to great chance.

I seem to agree with everybody else here. Give me 3 or 4 years at your current level, plus keep racking up stats at a lesser pace for 2 or 3 years after that, and it will be hard to keep him out.

I think he gets it, but it takes time. Delgado is this decade's Fred McGriff. He's always been good, but never quite got the attention of his peers.

A couple of more years close to current production and he gets in on the 2nd or 3rd ballot. Playing half his games in Shea isn't going to help, but yes, Delgado gets in.

I wouldn't put him the Hall ever. But my standards are way too high to be considered Hall of Fame material.

He would at least have to have over 2,200 hits and over 500 homers. I really don't see him as a Hall-of-Famer though.

I'd have to agree. I'm not sure why 369 HR's from a first baseman in this era is something that should be celebrated, but he does not get it in my mind.

Even 500 isn't that fantastic considering his overall numbers and the era in which in he played like you said. Frank on the other hand is up there statistically with pretty much any right handed hitter who ever lived.

Delgado has work to do. He can do it, but I doubt it.

Delgado has work to do. He can do it, but I doubt it. I've been trying to think of a first basemen that played a majority of the 90's that could compare with Delgado. The only one that I can think of is Tino Martinez. If Delgado gets votes now from people, then so does Tino. And Tino is not a HOF'er

I get the feeling Bernie Williams is part 3

Here's everyone he compares with in terms of his numbers.

He's one of those border cases. A championship would be the make or break thing for him, I think.

Did he lead the league in any major catagory (HR, BA RBI, etc)?
