Hall of Fame Poll: Andre Dawson

New, comments

One of my childhood heros, Dawson had a heck of a career. 438 homers (36th all time) and 1591 RBI (34th all time), in a 21 year career, 11 with the Expos. He was Rookie of the Year in 1977 and NL MVP in 1987. 8 Gold Gloves, and 8 All-Star selections. He came up a little short on votes last year, appearing on 67% of the Writer's ballots. He had the quickest bat I've seen, but the knock against him is that he didn't take walks. His numbers don't look quite as impressive when you look back through the steroid era, but he was a heck of a player.
