The Dodgers possess one of the most talented rosters in baseball. How many current players could we see in Cooperstown someday?
The Dodgers have a rich history of legendary players who have been honored in the Baseball Hall-of-Fame. However, most of them spent the majority of their careers somewhere else, or date back to the franchise’s days in Brooklyn.
Dodger fans can look away before I mention examples, such as Mike Piazza and Pedro Martinez, two all-time greats who were traded away too soon. Other players who have played a short time in Chavez Ravine and reached the Hall include Jim Thome, Greg Maddux, and Rickey Henderson.
Suffice to say, it’s been a long time since a Dodgers player of recent memory has received Baseball’s most prestigious honor, while also considering the five-year waiting period for players to be eligible on the ballot.
This current Dodgers roster offers some hope to future generations of fans who hope to see Dodger blue well-represented in the Hall-of-Fame. There are three candidates who I believe have a real chance of being recognized down the road. Of course, players change teams, injuries happen, and careers take sudden turns, but as of right now, there are three legit candidates: one that is obvious, one off to a great start, and one who just needs to stay in Los Angeles.
