    Twins HOF? First vote. Baseball HOF? It'll take a few years.

    I didn't even look at the author of this thread. I just mattered "Oh christ, Dave." when I saw the title.

    He takes too many pitches and doesn't hit for power in the clutch.

    A sub 1.00 ERA. Absolutely. In all seriousness, you get people who bail on Mauer after 30 at bats, but nobody ever jumps on the bandwagon when someone starts out hot.

    They just need to be careful not to injure anything.

    I would say yes, but since Gardy didn't let him complete that game... it's going to take an extra year.

    Nah, by the time he's eligable they'll be retroactively voting in all the past PED users, so he'll get shafted.

    I voted No (but he'll get in the next year).

    I know that's controversial, but I just don't think his total body of work is there yet. I'm going to need to see 10 to 15 more innings before I can really judge whether he belongs on the first ballot.

    How about being the Twins sole representative at the 2014 All Star Game?

    Kiss of death? The Strib offered this factoid: "The last Twins pitcher to win each of his first three starts as a member of the opening day rotation was Livan Hernandez in 2008."

    Since he's been compared favorably to Tom Glavine on TD, and Glavine just got in the Hall on the first ballot, I'm wondering:

    Why hasn't the Clemente rule been invoked and Gibby already been inducted, pre-posthumously?
