    Well projections or no it looks as if it's pretty much cut and dry 27-0. Nice to know we all agree on something. Ken Griffey Jr is a future HOFer.

      If Griffey makes it, we're going to have to elect Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb.

      Not sure about Musial and Williams though..They didn't quite reach Sockeye's predictions.
      My top 10 players:

      1. Babe Ruth
      2. Barry Bonds
      3. Ty Cobb
      4. Ted Williams
      5. Willie Mays
      6. Alex Rodriguez
      7. Hank Aaron
      8. Honus Wagner
      9. Lou Gehrig
      10. Mickey Mantle

        I think he could very well end up with

        Games 2750
        At-Bats 10,184
        Runs 1818
        Hits 2981
        Doubles 556
        Triples 46
        Home Runs 693
        RBI's 1987
        Stolen Bases 230
        Walks 1343
        AVG .293
        OBP .377
        SLG .561
        The Cinci Fans can't wait for the 700th hundred HR .
        After Bonds retires , Jr. will surpass Bonds and the Babe in HR totals ( If he stays healthy , wich is not a sure fact )

          As a Reds fan, I'll personally kiss Sockeye's butt if he makes those numbers. Of course...if he comes anywhere close to that, the Reds will trade him for a bucket of used batting practice balls come this July, so the question is moot for Reds fans.

          If Griffey loses a little pride and accepts a move to 1B like he should, he could very well hit another 100+ HR. But he needs to realize that the constant running/stopping in CF is killing his legs.

            Sorry but I can't see Griffey Jr reaching 700 home runs. Good thing he doesn't need to to make the HOF.

              Yeah...I'm pretty sure that Musial won't make it 'cause he's not as popular as Joe Dimaggio. I'm on the fence with Williams, though...

                The issue isn't Griffey's place in the HOF; he's a first ballot cinch. The issue is his place in baseball history.

                Ten years ago, it looked like Griffey may have ended up in the inner circle pantheon of baseball stars. He, not Bonds, was going to pass Babe and Hammerin' Hank. That's not going to happen now; he's not going to be the first 800 HR guy, and that was very possible for him 10 years ago.

                It's obvious now that Griffey should NEVER have left Seattle; his health went South when he came to Cincinnati, a team with a terrible health record for its outfielders.

This is the United States of America and one citizen has as much right to play as another. The National League will go down the line with Robinson whatever the consequences. You will find if you go through with your intention that you have been guilty of complete madness."

                    First-ballot HOFer is Junior Griffey.

                    I'm enjoying watching him this year. He's made some great catches and hit some key homers for the no-longer-fecolithic Reds. Good stuff!

                      I was at the game two days ago. Grifffey lept up into the air and made an increible diving catch. My first thoughts? PLEASE STAND UP!
                      he did luckily....

                      But the point is, Ken Griffey Junior has so much effort, he can't help but injure himself because he tries as hard as when he was a 25 year ol, but has a SLIGHTLY older body.

                      I'm really on the line here with his HOF induction. You know, his defense is overrated. He never was really THAT great. And his home run numbers are nothing, especially compared to his very legit contemporaries. I mean, if Barry Bonds can hit 73, why can't Griffey? The case for his induction just isn't very strong. Look at players similar to him. Willie Mays, who we all know only got in for making that "Catch". He's not even the best left handed. left-hitting, outfield born in a small town of Donora on Pennsylvania on November 11th. C'mon, if you can't be the best person born in your hometown, you can't be in the fame. Not to mention my own bias, because let's be honest, Ken Griffey Junior is such a JERK. NO WAY HE GETS INTO THE HOF!

                        This is some of the finest sarcasm I've yet seen on this site. Nice job.

                                I can only imagine your opinion on Barry Bonds.
