I agree in concept, but over 3300 hits (#11 all-time in only 18 seasons) with around a .320 career average with over 250 hrs's for a SS? He doesn't have A-Rod power numbers, but how many do? His post season numbers are in-line or better than his regular season numbers. His .976 fielding percentage is inline with Larkin's.

I admit I basically never watch the Yanks, other than when O'Neill was there. But based on that ancient memory and the stats, he sure seems like a first ballot player. Trust me, I hate all things Yanks, but I can't see anything here that would give me pause. Golden boy or not, he is one of the best to ever play the game.
