Is Aramis Ramirez a hall of famer?

 Ramirez belts a walk off against the White Sox

When healthy Aramis Ramirez can be a force at third base he can drive the ball and can hit for a high average as well and can draw walks. Ramirez has struggled with injuries as of late after a 50-double season last year he has only hit 11 this year in 54 games. His slugging percentage is over .100 points lower than last season but that is effected due to the injuries.

 Ramirez is a good hitter, even maybe one of the better hitting third baseman of all time. He is among the top 10 home run hitters for third baseman with 342 (6th active) and 91st all time and110th all time in extra base hits (13th active). He is among the top 130 in RBIs (12th active) A-Ram is 35 years old but hitting 50 doubles at 34 is hard in its own right and is impressive for his lack of speed as well.

The next 4-5 years are key for Ramirez as he needs to get to 400 homers before his name starts coming up more. He seems to be a lock for 500 doubles in his career which will help his case as an extra base guy. A-Ram has a .845 career OPS and a 116 OPS+. His best years were in a Cubs uniform where he was on of the best third baseman to wear a Cub uniform and if he does get enough to be inducted it will be in a Cubs uniform.
