Vladimir Guerrero will be inducted as an Angel

Not in Hall of Fame
Vladimir Guerrero has announced in a news conference that he will be entering the Baseball Hall of Fame as an Angel making him the first to enter Cooperstown with a halo on the cap.

Guerrero actually had a longer run with the Montreal Expos, the team for which he debuted for in 1996. As an Expo, he played for eight seasons with four All Star Game appearances with 234 Home Runs, a Slash Line of .323/.390/.588 and a bWAR of 31.8. His tenure with the Angels was only six seasons with four All Star Games, 173 Home Runs, a Slash Line of .319/.381/.546 and a bWAR 24.3.

While his numbers accumulatively in Montreal exceed that of the Angels, Guerrero’s best individual years were with the Angels. In his first year with the then named Anaheim Angels, “The Impaler” was named the American League MVP. He was the second runner-up for the Award two other times.

This may make fans of the Montreal Expos sad but there is solace in that there are already three donning that chapeau in Gary Carter, Andre Dawson and last year’s inductee, Tim Raines.

We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate the Angels organization for seeing one of their own in the Hall!
