Sheffield is the one that is gonna test the "500-600 plateau" entry. I think he gets in by veterans  commitee.

when i think of the HOF, Gary Sheffield doesn't come to mind.  numbers or no numbers.  speaking of his numbers, it looks like that he had the " Barry Bonds" gene in his body where his stats got better into his mid 30's.  didn't Bonds and Sheffield " train" together ?

This Sheffield HOF debate does pose an interesting question. Will steroid usage or alleged steroid usage dq somebody from the HOF?

It has so far with Mark McGwire.

I'd vote for him, but the vast majority of the Baseball Writers Association of America(B.B.W.A.A.) will not.

If you put him in, then you have to put Rafael Palmeiro in too, as he has some sick numbers as well. Steroids or not, he should be in if Sheff goes in.

It shouldn't.  MLB knew it was going on and encouraged it because it put asses in the seats.  It would be bullshit to punish the guys now.

I don't think Albert Belle is a HoFer, but I'd put Belle in before I'd put Sheffield in.  Belle was the main offensive catalyst with all the teams he was with, and for about three or four seasons, was considered the best offensive player in the game.  Neither can be said for Sheff.

Short answer for Sheff?  No.
