Joe Buck thinks so. I don’t know. He won’t have the flashy, all-important (to the writers, anyway) milestone numbers. No 3000 hits, no 500 HRs. He will have a career BA over .300 and he’s already over 1500 RBI. He only won one MVP award.
His top 3 comps on baseball reference are 1. Gary Sheffield 2. Jeff Bagwell 3. Vlad Guerrero. Sheff’s got 500 HRs, so I think Bagwell is actually the best comp for HOF consideration and he didn’t get in on the first ballot. Chipper does, however, have the reputation of remaining clean throughout the steroid era. I think he’ll get in, but I don’t know about first ballot.
