    Is Adrian Beltre HOF Worthy?

    Good hitter, great defensive player at 3rd basemen, perhaps the MVP of the Rangers this season. Kurkjian says not at the moment , but possibly.

    What do you guys say? Will Beltre make the Hall?

    He's got a good shot to get to get 3000 hits. He has an advantage since he came into the league at age 19 and has been an everyday player since then. He's a 15-year veteran, yet he's only 33 years old. If he plays until he's 40, then he'll definitely reach that milestone.

    Future Hall of Shamers:
    (1) B.A.L.C.O. Barroids (2) Mark McJuicer (3) Jose Chem-seco (4) Rafael Palmeiroids (5) Ken Chem-initi (6) Jason Gi-andro (7) Ryan Fraud (8) Muscle Melk (9) Woman-Ram (10) Shammy Sosa (11) Roger Clear-mens (12) A-Roid (13) Ryan HGHoward

    Isn't he kind of young to have this discussion?

    he has a chance at 500 home runs, and the general lack of 3b in the hall of fame, though, he probably was juicing during him mvp campaign, also, assuming he never wins a ring, what hat does he wear?

    He had one monster season in LA, but he's been a bust for most of his career. So no.

    Lol, not even close to true. He's just been a strange and inconsistent player throughout his career who has played in pitcher's parks for most of his career.

    He's probably the second best defensive 3B. He has had some great years with the bat and some terrible years with the bat. His bat is the only thing keeping it borderline. If he plays 5 more years he will end up top10 in WAR at 3B.

    His inconsistency and the presence of his downright awful years with the bat will be the thing that might keep him out with the voters. For me, however, he should get in solely on his defense. Getting to watch him and Rolen has really been special.

    I don't think so. He's had a great career, but he's only had 2 seasons over .900 OPS. He's also only led the league in 2 categories--doubles once, and homers once--I don't think that's enough. It's an excellent career, don't get me wrong, but I don't think his numbers are good enough for the hall.

    Okay...that doesn't change my original question. He is only 33, lot of time left to play.

    He's a juicer and still hasn't earned it on the numbers. It's not far off, considering how valuable has glove has been, but there's work to be done. Plus whatever the voters decide to do with known PED users.

    Probably will be top 15 in a couple more seasons, but not quite yet. His numbers right now are pretty much identical to Robin Ventura.

    Prove it.

    Its never even been hinted at that he's used. He just had one big season.

    Depends on your definition of a bust. Beltre was always hyped up to be a superstar, both in LA and Seattle. That he's having a late career resurgence doesn't excuse the fact that he's been a chronic underachiever for most of his career. I still remember the regular lashings doled out by LA's professional troll TJ Simers. Wasn't very pretty.
