Alfonso Soriano went to seven straight All Star Games (one of which he was named the All Star Game MVP) and was a fan favourite for many.  Soriano is a member of the 2,000 Hit Club, the 400 Home Run Club, has for Silver Slugger Awards, a career .500 Slugging Percentage and a Stolen Base title, however the Hall of Fame might elude him, and perhaps by a wide margin.

Soriano has a not Hall of Fame like 27.4 career bWAR, which was caused by a low career On Base Percentage (.319) and poor defensive skills.  In the modern thought process, that could be enough to keep him off many Hall of Fame ballots.
