  • When will Nomar make the Hall of Fame

    When do you think Nomar Garciaparra make the Hall of Fame?

    Career Accomplishments
    • 1997 American League Rookie of the Year
    • 1998 American League Most Valuable Player: Runner-up
    • Rookie record for HR by a SS (30)
    • '99 Batting Title: .357 (190/532)
    • '00 Batting Title: .372 (197/529)
    • Record for 2B by a SS (56)
    • .327 Career BA


    Career projections through age 40
    • .327 BA
    • 2399 Hits
    • 1320 Runs Scored
    • 540 2B
    • 94 3B
    • 328 HR
    • 1291 RBI
    • 4098 Total Bases
    • .374 OBP
    • .561 SLG%
    • .935 OPS


    That is by a SS, so I'd say 1st ballot. Plus, those are only projections so he could much better. But if injuries occur, worse.

      Well I changed it for you BoSox Rule. I'd say he's going in 1st ballot, if for nothing else so I can say, "No-mah is a Hall of Fame-a"

        Who voted for he won't make it? They didn't even give a reason. It's a pretty bold prediction, too.

            Why such a low projection on his hit total?

              BoSox Rule doesn't realize that Nomar is immortal and will collect at least 5000 hits, right Ken?

                I was a little surprised with the low number too.

                  Well, Nomar's career numbers were hurt, partially, because of the 2000 season.

                    Correction: 2001 Season

                      I find those numbers surprisingly low as well, especially considering he had a fast start. His clip is about 1000 hits per 3000 ABs and he started at age 22.

                      I tentatively say "first ballot"... because as you know, it won't take much dropoff for people to question his candidacy and it could happen soon. Ya never know.

                        Maybe I miscalculated the projections, or maybe 2001 killed him. Anyone else wanna calculate the projections.

                          I just think you can't plan on someone being injured throughout his career. I mean, who breaks their wrist every three years? Know what I mean?
                          I'd be shocked if Nomar retired with less than 3400 hits if he plays an average of 150 games a year ...

                            ...but some players do get injured every three years, Ken. More often players suffer a major injury and are never the same again. How many Hall of Fame careers would there be today if it weren't for injuries? At least double, I'd say.

                              Yes, some, but I don't think the majority of players are injured to the extent of being on the DL for months at a time every three years or so. That's not what I've seen over the years, at least on the Sox anyway...

                              Well, in 15 years or so, we'll both know for sure...
