    He could have still pitched if he really wanted to (most likely)
    Oh man, what a dishonorable quitter. I would file bone on bone at 30 for a pitcher's throwing elbow as a good reason to retire, especially in the 60's where the solution was to put his arm in an ice tub for a few hours. The fact that he had pitched through that elbow pain for years before retiring is also probably a small factor.

    Andrew Jones has no chance of ever making the hall of fame, and will be lucky to get more than 20% of the vote when he's up for election..His drop off after 2006 was far to steep, and his offensive numbers during the steroid era were just avg. Great defensive player though..

    This isn't the hall of good, or the hall of very good. This is the HALL OF FAME!!

    Besides, he was on the stuff most of his career.

    He should have retired at the age of 30, and then maybe...

    Dude what the hell?


    I never said 'dishonorable quitter' or any of that crap.

    I said he quit when someone spoke of decline into players 30's like Jimmie Foxx. That's it.

    Stay out of the conversation if you aren't going to actually contribute anything. He quit, he did. I never said it was bad, or wrong, or anything horrible. He just never provided a MLB decline, so we never got to see him get worse. He quit after a season with a 1.73 ERA. It's fine, that was his choice though. He never declined in the Major Leagues, which is what the discussion was.

    I have no idea why you jump into conversations and just assume what people are talking about. A 'dishonorable quitter' because that's what was being said

    Exactly my point when you mention Linstrom. These are NOT elite players we are talking about.
    My saying is. Just because the path is well beaten that doesn't mean its the right way to go. Stop the bleeding.

    Sandy Koufax did not quit, he was forced into retirement by an injury he rode through for years previously but could not for much longer without suffering some real long term consequences that the medical treatment of the time would not afford him to miss. Minute differences have never matter to you, I get that, but there is a huge difference between retiring due to injury and quitting - period.

    Yeah hell no. Terrible batting average, horrible career after his peak, and even at his peak, he was just very good, not great or amazing or HOF worthy.

    Nothing that this guy did was special or great. He was just a very good player. Except this is not Hall of good, this is Hall of Fame. The best of the best.

    this lifelong braves fan says no. sure he was a great defensive center fielder and he had some great offensive seasons as well as almost winning the MVP one year, but he bottomed out when he was supposed to be in his prime. as fascinating it was to watch him in the outfield, it was frustrating more times than not when he was at the plate. he never made adjustments and always wound up dropping to one knee too many times on strike outs. it was ugly.
    if dale murphy isn't a hall of famer, then andruw jones definitely shouldn't be in.
