Boston Red Sox: is David Ortiz Hall of Fame worthy?

I have watched David Ortiz emerge as a dominant hitter for the Boston Red Sox from his first season with the team in 2003. He was an average designated hitter / infrequent first basemen for the Minnesota Twins, topping 20 home runs in a season just once before heading to Beantown.
