Default Giancarlo Stanton -- any chance at the Hall?

I would have reflexively said no way, he's a guy who had one great year, but at 32 he's at 45 WAR (ahead of, for example, Dave Parker) and has over 350 HR. What do people think?

I think it depends on how he ages. If He's consistently hitting 35+ Homers over the next six or seven seasons it'd be hard not to put him in the Hall. But he needs to stay healthy.

Well, he definitely has the talent. I think he needs a few more monster years to solidify his greatness. He's 32, but he still hits the ball so hard I think he can do it. Just needs to stay healthy.

What if Nelson Cruz gets to 500? It's no guarantee like it used to be.

Anyone remember when 400Hr was a sure thing? Hasn't been for years, but todays stats seem crazy.

47 to go, but he's 41, on the other hand he's still hitting although his BA is bad so far this year. If I had to bet, I would bet he falls short.

The 50-game PED suspension Nelson Cruz served will weigh heavier on his HOF chances than his home run total.
