Jermaine Dye and the Hall of Fame

Now that Dye has officially retired, lets operate a poll on his chances for the Hall of Fame.  A solid right fielder throughout his playing days, Jermaine was also a class act, professional ballplayer.  Although he failed to reach 1,800 career hits, he did blast 325 homeruns–a total that looks decent but is skimpy when compared to his peers of the Steroid Era.  A lifetime .274 hitter, Dye had a cannon-arm in right field.  Jermaine played predominately with the Royals, White Sox and Braves–decent exposure but his solid years with the Royals went unnoticed outside KC.
