What are David Ortiz's Hall of Fame chances?
Rather than belabor all the same points I made just those few months ago, just a few bullet points to save you some time:
My conclusion last spring: "Leaving aside the sports drugs completely, and knowing just what I know now, I couldn't support his candidacy without at least two more big regular seasons."
Well, he just had another big regular season. And there's probably a better than 50/50 chance that he's got yet another in him, even at 40.
So a year from now, I'll probably support his candidacy. But I suspect the voters will give him a tough time. Not because he was a DH. But because he failed that drug test, just like so many of his colleagues.
