Just think about it for a second: Brett Gardner inducted into the Hall of Fame. People probably think I'm crazy, but I mean it. Gardner has a great glove, and is one of the best fielders in baseball. Not only, that, he offers more steals than a thrift store with great speed. He's continuing to learn to hit better, and he has great plate discipline.
Do the abilities I just described remind you of someone? You got it: Rickey Henderson.
Even though he didn't have his breakout season (yet), he has great protection in the lineup, so that he'll see more fat pitches in the strike zone.
You'll see: Gardner's going to have his breakout season in the 2010 season. Just Watch!
