    contrarian TAKE:should AL pitchers also b banned (like papi) from the HOF since they dont hit?

    ummm, think about it.. nl counterparts have to run the bases, hit and pitch.. mrs. welker would b proud. if its ridiculous (clearly so) to shut out the Al pitching greats like the pedro, y should an the papi be made a scapegoat for someone's narrow agenda. papi will finish with over 2000 hits, tons of clutch hits in the biggest pressure cooker, with at least 2 rings and an out-of-wordly ops.. someone jabro analyst had the nerve to say baines and edgar were better Dhs than papi.. clearly another case of stats telling a bigger lie than reality..

    how many pressure games did edgar play in? when was baines the hands-down biggest bat on any of his teams? papi doesnt complement, he is the PRIMARY straw that stirs everything, the absolute indispensable, irrepleaceable hitter evevn at his advanced age. ells and pedy can b replaced and we could win it all without losing much. if papi goes down, we b TOAST!

    None of them are "banned", but they need to recognize a legit position in MLB.

    With all the talk going around about DH's in the HOF this year, I think we will see some of the great DH's in the HOF in the future. Once a few of the grumpy old goats that vote now, "go away".

    y should an the papi be made a scapegoat for someone's narrow agenda. papi will finish with over 2000 hits, 

    1-2000 hits is no biggie.  Papi is #295 on the hit list.

    2-It has nothig to do with agenda.  A SS with 420 HRs and a .287 should make the HOF ahead of a DH with the same stats.
