My Stupid Opinion


Good hitter who could rarely stay healthy an entire season. He managed to play over 150 games in a season only once in his career, which also happened to be his best year in 1993. His career does prove that postseason experience doesn't mean shit when it actually comes to playing the postseason as he played in 112 postseason games but hit only .224/.335/.382. He did fuck Halle Berry but he's not close to being borderline candidate where such a feat can be considered.

Of course I think he's a playoff god soley for hitting that homerun in game 6 of the 95 world series. Which in itself was hilarious because he got booed when he came out and then he won the series. I vaguely remember him being a beast in that 2000 ALCS against the Mariners, and being the complete opposite the next year, where I was wanting them to keep him in the lineup against the D-backs because he was an instant out.


As for the Halle Berry thing, didn't he also beat her? Violence against women is usually a bad thing, but its Halle Berry so I think it's worth some extra points.
