    Rodriguez will get in easily
    Bonds will get in eventually, for better or worse
    Ichiro has a good chance I think
    Jeter has a good chance
    Beltran? Maybe
    Vizquel? Possible
    Lofton? A chance

    There's always a chance people will get voted in, but maybe I'm just tired.

    I don't think Pierre or Cameron will get in.

      Pretty much my choices as well. You can also add Jimmy Rollins. If the second half of his career is as good as the first half, he stands to have a good chance as well. I'd put him in my too early to tell group at this point.

        You can go in and add a poll later on. That's what Freakshow does with all his ultimate quest polls and I don't think he's a moderator.

          We know now just how overrated the SB is and how little it adds in terms of run production over the course of the season. I never look at the stat anymore and really don't care.

            To me the only time stolen bases are really valuable is when you have a player that steals many bases at a very high percentage (like Tim Raines, and Rickey Henderson in their primes) or someone like Carlos Beltran when he goes 42/45 or 31/32 in steals.

              Ichiro has a real good chance

                Ichiro, A-Rod, and Jeter are the only ones that would get my vote (assuming they haven't done and won't do anything stupid)

                  Bonds, Suzuki, Rodriguez and Jeter are the only players on that list I believe will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. None of their cases will be substantially helped by their stolen base totals.

                    I think Rollins and Beltran are building cases for themselves, and Carl Crawford is still very young and improves every year, so I think he could end up with a HOF career.

                    Vizquel might have a chance, depending on if the media latches on to his case. To the untrained eye he looks pretty comparable to Ozzie Smith, and I can see him getting substantial support.

                    Bobby Abreu and Johnny Damon might look Hall-worthy if they reach some milestones but otherwise it's not likely.

                    Renteria is in if he gets 3000 hits, and Furcal might also have a shot at some milestones given how young he was when he started.

                    Bonds, Jeter, Ichiro and A-Rod will all end up in the Hall.

                      Vizquel never did any backflips though.

                      The one thing I don't like about "magic numbers"...Renteria is not worthy of the Hall.

                            A-Rod
                            Bonds
                            Ichiro
                            Jeter

                            Jeter and A-Rod are locks. Bonds should get in. Ichiro is at about 75%.

                              Yeah, it's not like the all-time stolen base leader scored many runs or anything like that! :noidea
