Johnny Damon and the Hall of Fame

The latest former All-Star to be designated for assignment, Johnny Damon’s road to 3,000 hits seems to have run out of gravel.  The fading Indians cut ties with the outfielder since his offensive production was weak and his defensive worth has been nil for several years.  This might be the end of the line for Johnny, but it was a solid ride.  Inching up on 2,800 career hits, Damon nevertheless rests in the Top 50 all-time in career runs scored and doubles.  Although the man didn’t seem to do anything right–no coach would ever teach his unorthodox swing–he racked up numbers that will get him some Hall of Fame support.
