Johnny Damon

 

The Cleveland Indians designated Johnny Damon for assignment today. At this stage of his career I doubt strongly that another team will be picking him up for any long-term service. So the likelihood of reaching 3000 hits is unlikely.

If this is truly the end of his brilliant career, over the next five years there will be lots of discussions on whether Johnny Damon belongs in the Hall of Fame?

I’ve attached links to Johnny Damon’s and Vada Pinson’s Baseball Reference pages. There careers are quite similar, Pinson didn’t get in. So I’m asking you what’s your opinion is Johnny Damon a hall of famer and if so what about Vada Pinson?
