    WHICH CURRENT SOX COULD EVENTUALLY BE HOF BOUND?

    methinks papelbon, pedy, papi, ellsbury, youk, gonzo, lester +beckett could all someday be in cooperstown. in order, i would say the trajectory is gonzo, pap, pedy, ells, lester, papi (steroids and dh will hurt), and becks. BARD, REDDICK, and tek could have very much outside shots someday. bard actually is the one i have the most confidence in. he could be an all-timer someday as both a starter or closer.

    I agree that Adrian has the potential.  As much as I like many on the list, maybe Ortiz has the best shot due to his DH position.  I wouldn't bet on any though.  Hopefully that doesn't make me a 'bad' fan.

    Bard is 100 saves behind thanks to Papelbon being the incumbent.

    I would guess Papi if they change their look on DH. If he finish 400+ HR he might eventually make it on his 10th+ ballot.

    I'd vote Reddick and Bard in today; why wait, what more do they have to prove?

    Re: WHICH CURRENT SOX COULD EVENTUALLY BE HOF BOUND?

    It's too early to project for any of these players. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say Ortiz and Pedroia have the best chance. People won't forget Ortiz's playoff heroics in '04 and he may go down as the best DH in the history of baseball, which should certainly count for something. Pedroia looks like he'll have a Bobby Doerr-type career, maybe better in some ways. For Pedroia, it'll be about staying healthy and productive for the rest of the decade.

    Gonzalez won't make it because he didn't start putting up big numbers until 3-4 years ago and he's already 29. His prime will be too short.

    Youkilis moved around the infield too much and his numbers are a cut below HOF-status anyway. He won't reach any significant milestones, and will enter a downturn in a year or two.

    Papelbon could amass a high career saves total if he continues to close for awhile. Relief pitching is so volatile, though, I can't render a prediction until he approaches the Rivera/Hoffman benchmark, which may never occur. Most closers don't last long enough to get there.

    Ellsbury and Crawford are very good talents, but like Youkilis, they're a cut or two below HOF-level production.

    Beckett has been too inconsistent and will fall short of reaching any major pitching milestones. Ditto Buchholz.

    Lester has an outside shot, given his age and propensity for strong win totals. Could he get to 300 wins? No. 250? Probably not. 220? Maybe. For a lefthander, that might be sufficient if he keeps his ERA below 3.50, makes a bunch of All-Star teams, wins another championship or two, and claims at least one Cy Young Award. I wouldn't bet on any of those things happening.

    Miller is no Randy Johnson. Sorry scouts.

    You have nearly half the team going to Cooperstown, get real.  Hodwever, I applaud you for acknowledging Papi's steroid use.  Maybe Agon but this is a breakout year for him atleast when batting average is concerned he would have to do this more than once. Ellsbury???? Also, do it more than once.

    I saw an older gentleman in Bangkok today with a RS hat and a Tek uniform shirt on.... I wanted to heckle him but just couldn't find the strength.

    i hope you aren't comparing BARD to MILLER.
    one is a very good pitcher, the other is a failed experiment.
    hope you can figure which is which.

    I would say the only one I think with a shot is lester.

    No way big sloppy gets in. Being a DH makes it hard enough to get in, being a DH on PED's will probably make it impossible to get in.

    Pedroia compares favorably to Roberto Alomar so far.  He also has an MVP and ROY to his resume, and looks like a good bet for a GG this year.  He has to keep it going for many more years, though.

    He doesn't have Alomar's otherworldy range or speed, but appears to be a better hitter; and a gamer, always big in my book.

    rightfully so; however, as slim a chance as tito has of getting in, tito still has a better chance than 'boy genius.'

    great point. should have said, apart from gonzo and tito.. tito is a lock right now to be a HOF'r! well-liked, well-respected with the record, percentage and track record. dont bother me about the philly stuff, for torre wasnt a managing legend until he went to NY either. nor was the great belichick ti he ran into mr. kraft and a 6th round qb from michigan now nicknamed by some "tommy gisele".
