Default New Poll: Which Active Players are 'Shoe-in' HOFers?

Any or all of these or anyone else:

I think they'll all get in actually, but Kershaw has too much career left ahead of him (hopefully) to say he's a shoo-in just yet, IMO. Beltre may struggle with people who think his career was tainted and/or that he was a compiler.

I think Beltre gets in but I think he has to wait just like Piazza and Bagwell did, for the same reasons.

As an Astros & Bagwell fan, I believe he used. I was surprised that he got in so quickly. I figured he eventually would, but I thought he would have a longer wait.

Here's an interesting article on Bagwell.

I kind of wish this poll had different players in it, with the exception of Beltre. His career is interesting to discuss but I don't think many people will be voting against Ichiro. I'm wondering how people feel about Joe Mauer, Chase Utley or Michael Young. It's more fun to talk about the fringe guys.

A shoe-in can only be identified post-prime. The first three are in. Beltre's on the fence. Kershaw needs another 3+ years of prime to enter the discussion.

Of course those guys all make it. I'll second packs' suggestion. The Joe Mauer question is much more interesting.

Also:

Joey Votto
C.C. Sabathia
Jose Altuve
Zach Greinke

Sabathia will be an interesting case, especially if he gets to 3,000 strikeouts, which he could do in 2018.

I think they all could get in if they retired today. Additionally, Trout, Cano, Votto and Verlander are all 2-3 good years off being HOF locks IMO.

I think Cano has already done enough to get in but I think he'll find it difficult anyway. Same goes for Votto if you ask me. I don't think Verlander is even close though, neither is Sabathia in my opinion. I don't think either pitcher was better than Mussina and Mussina hasn't gotten in.
