Ken Griffey Jr. is not a Hall of Famer. I mean, he’s obviously one of the best players in the history of baseball. But the idea of Griffey as a present-tense Hall of Famer does not compute, not for me and, I’m sure, for other baseball fans of this – or perhaps any – generation. The “future” part of “future Hall of Famer” would always remain affixed to Griffey’s name. They called him The Kid. He’s up for election next year. God, I guess I am old now.
