Johnny Damon came close to getting to the 3,000 Hit mark in his career (2,769) and did have other decent career numbers with 235 Home Runs, 1,139 Runs Batted in and 408 Stolen Bases. Damon was also a very popular figure who won two World Series (one in Boston and one in New York), but a look at his individual campaigns show that of a statistical compiler, as he never had a top ten MVP season, only made two All Stars, and only was in the top ten in WAR for Position Players once. Throw in his sub .800 career OPS and sub par defense, do we have a more popular Vada Pinson on our hands?  His vote tally in his first year of eligibility will be very interesting.
