While Placido Polanco had a very good career in Major League Baseball and had over 2,000 Hits and a Silver Slugger Award, stats that would surprise many. Polanco was also a two time All Star and a two time Gold Glove recipient and while he was a very good player, he does not have Cooperstown credentials…though was a lot better than most people remember!
