 Jorge Posada…... a Hall of Fame Player ?
 Since his retirement in 2011, at baseballsgreatest hitters.com, we have been asked the same question time 
 and time again, is Jorge Posada a Hall of Fame player? Initially our response was a NO, or maybe border-line at best.
 In the past few months,Michael Kay, on his radio show and Marc Malusis,on SNY, mentioned on several occassions
questions about Jorge Posada,and the Hall of Fame.We have a lot of respect for Michael and Marc's baseball knowledge and
 their comments prompted us to check Posadas' numbers and see how they measure up to some other Hall of Fame 
 catchers. The baseball Hall of Fame is all about statistics and numbers. Looking at the charts below, Jorge Posada 
 does have Hall of Fame numbers. When we began comparing the numbers, Jorge Posadas' stats measure up
 favorably to the greatest hitting catchers in the history of the game.Our research shows he is one of the seven greatest
 hitting catchers in the past 40 years. His home run to at bat ratio is very impressive, at 1/22.16, this is 4th all-time, 
 amongst the top hitters, only behind Mike Piazza, Roy Campanella,and Yogi Berra. His on base pct.is near to the
 top of he list, which makes Posada a great offensive force, hitting for power and getting on base. He is the best
 hitting catcher of the decade.In conclusion,we have done a complete turn around from our initial responce
 and according to our research at baseballsgreatesthitters,com. Jorge Posada is a Hall of Fame catcher.
