Is Gary Sheffield a Hall of Famer? Discuss.

Gary Sheffield officially announced his retirement yesterday. Will his next stop be Cooperstown?

Here is a selective group of players based on certain minimum criteria: 500+ homers, 1600+ RBI, 250+ stolen bases, .290+ batting average.

Look at this group and tell me how many actually deserve to be in the Hall of Fame based on the numbers and character.
