My Stupid Opinion

 

Although his 1995 AL MVP was a complete joke, Vaughn did have a nice little run with the Red Sox. But it was not surprising that a man of his, um, girth did not age well at all. He was already in the middle of perpetual decline when he missed the whole 2001 season due to a ruptured tendon in his left arm. Fun Fact: Vaughn was the highest paid player in baseball during his final active season where he hit .190/.323/.329 in 27 games. Remember kids, it pays to have a good agent.

Vaughn should be in the HOF just for getting as much money as he did in that final contract. I remember laughing pretty much everyday the Braves played the Mets in those years just at Vaugn's contract. Not a worst of all time contender, but certainly a bad one.
