Hall Of Fame Debate: Taking Another Look At ‘Big Papi’ David Ortiz

Hall Of Fame Debate: Taking Another Look At ‘Big Papi’ David Ortiz

We all know that without David Ortiz’s performance in the 2013 World Series that the Boston Red Sox would have been more challenged for the title.  His performance was epic, by all standards, and he deservedly was crowned as the World Series MVP.

In February of this year, we debated Ortiz’s Hall of Fame eligibility and gave our thoughts on his potential induction into Cooperstown.

The end result of that debate was pretty split.  You can review that original post here.

My question tonight is this – Did Papi’s performance in the 2013 World Series change your mind?  Did that sole series change your opinion on him?  We know it built his legacy as a player – that is not questionable.  But, did it elevate his status when you think about him as a possible ‘Hall of Famer’.

For me, I had him penciled in as a future HOF’er before this season started.  His 2013 WS performance only solidified that stance in my eyes.

What do you think??  In 6 games, does your vote now swing towards David Ortiz and his future as a Hall of Famer?

Let me hear it!!

  1. Last year, I said no. This year….yeah, I gotta give it to him, hes there.

  2. I still feel the same way; that Ortiz should
    make the HOF, but I also still feel that Edgar should still be the first DH inducted into Cooperstown.

  3. .455 average in 44 World Series at bats
    Yup HOF

  4. Without question. He carried three teams to world championships. Of course he had help, but without him, Boston would still be cursed.
