Albert Belle to the Hall of Fame?

He made the ballot.

Belle led the AL in RBI three times and finished a .295 batting average, 381 homers and 1,239 RBI. Clark had a .303 career average, 284 homers and 1,205 RBI.

Does that get him in? Even if the numbers are good enough, he was mean to reporters. Reporters remember when people are mean to them. They’re funny that way. You could be Ray Lewis and beat a murder rap and get hailed as a second coming, but you look at a reporter the wrong way one time, forget about the HOF.
