    They both should be in- I could've sworn Gonzalez's career average was lower, so I'm surprised, but yeah, they both should be in

    I can't wait to see how fast you change that when you find out who the second player is.

    I think player A, 2 Time MVP and over 400 Homers kind of does it for me. Not to mention he seemed to be quite the force in the postseason.

    Even though Jose Canseco said Juan Gonzalez did steroids!?!


    The point of this is that even putting aside the steroid issue, Juan Gonzalez would likely fall off the HoF ballot very quickly, while Jim Rice will be inducted this spring...but they were both extremely similar players.

    (It should be noted that both of Juan Gonzalez's MVP awards were undeserved, but the BBWAA voters don't care about that. All they care about is that he won them. And even with that, he's likely to fall off the ballot quickly, and would still be likely to fall off quickly without the very minuscule steroid taint.)

    I have to say neither. Juan Gone was good, but he battled too many injuries, and his career was too short. If he had stayed healthy, I would say he would be in.

    Juan Gonzalez did steroids? If he did, then that changes my opinion.

    Jose Canseco said Juan Gonzalez did steroids. That is the only evidence that he did.

    You mean kind of like how Mark McGwire was hurt a lot? And Jose Canseco himself?

    It is obviously possible, due to his health meltdown, but that could just as easily be unrelated. And Jose Canseco is not exactly the most trust-worthy guy in the game.
