One of the most complete hitters of his era, Vladimir Guerrero hit for power, for average, had speed and was consistent. Guerrero came up through the Montreal Expos and set multiple single season records in multiple categories there, but like so many who played there in the 90’s, the franchise had to let go of their stars, and “Vlad the Impaler” became an Angel and was a huge reason that the California team won five straight Divisions. Guerrero has a lot of the stats the Hall might look for, though there were many other outfielders in his time frame that were also offensive juggernauts. The voting on Mr. Guerrero should be very interesting.

He may get docked a bit for not walking much (unintentionall y) and for not getting to 500 HR, but Vlad answers a few Keltner List questions as one of the best hitters of his era. I'd take him over Frank Thomas and Manny Ramirez. A Hall of Fame-caliber player.

100% yes that Vladimir Guerrero should be a first ballot HoF. Who are these other outfielders drink 1998-2010 who were offensive juggernauts (and did no steroids??), more deserving. Andruw Jones (nope), Hunter (Nope), who?
