    So Juan Pierre is better than Markakis because he stole a ton more bases?

    I think the main point he's trying to make is HOF standards have changed. And along with having 3,000 hits, holding the all-time stolen base record for 14 years put him in.

    Lou Brock also had quite a few MVP votes over the years and also 2 WS championships (3 WS) & did well in each series.

    This is crazy. Never even thought he could be on a 3,000 hit watch. But if he plays four more seasons at about 600 ABs, he could do it.

    He's not a HOF on paper obviously. I could see him getting in, though.

    It's crazy that he could retire and be top 30 all-time in hits. I'm also surprised considering all of the injuries he used to have.

    He has been a very good player for a long time?

    WHAT???????

    He has accumulated 14 WAR over his previous 9 seasons.

    He's at best an average starter for most of his career with a couple very good seasons mixed in.

    I mean if Markakis plays four more years, heíll likely have a war between 30-35. Hard to hate on that, for me at least.

    Productive player

    What injuries? Outside of 2012 when he played 104 games he's played almost a full season every year. Every year he's might have missed and average of 4-5 games. That's probably not from injuries but days off. Considering he played a lot of those years in the AL with the DH it's not surprising that he didn't pinch hit on his days off like a lot of NL players.

    You get 3000 hits your in. Idc how good you've been but to get 3000 hits is an accomplishment and longevity is something you work for and the grind day in and day out keeping your body healthy.

    i think the consesus agrees, Markakis himself isnt a HOF player

    but theres a split on if the voters would vote him in based on the 3000 hit bench mark

    thats where i honestly dont know. if he does get to 3000 hits do the voters still hold firm on that bench mark? or like Rush says, standards have changed
