Albert Belle was certainly an enigma for the Cleveland Indians, Major League Baseball and even in the community. 

Belle did not like the reporters, and the media probably did not like him too well.  

There was also some crazy incidents in his private life.

Belle overall just seemed to be a guy that had a mean disposition. 

If Belle would have smiled more and played nice with the media, would he have a shot at the HOF?

Belle would've had to play several more years to get a sniff at the HOF.

He retired too soon. Another 3 or 4 years might have gotten him in.

He was an asshole but didn’t have the longevity. He didn’t hit any milestone: no 2,000 hits, no 400 HRs, no .300 BA, no 1,000 runs. He broke 1,000 RBIs and that’s it.

Albert Belle=Prince FielderHe didn't really retire, he was forced out with a hip injury that was almost as bad as Bo Jackson's.  The pain that he endured just to take a simple AB was more than he could deal with.  He had financial security and he left.  I really liked him as a player and loved his "Fuck Everybody" attitude.
