Larry Walker Thinks He ‘Saw Satan’ in Alfredo Aceves’ Eyes While Restraining Pitcher During WBC Brawl

Alfredo Aceves comes off as a scary dude. Not only does Aceves throw gas when he’s on the mound, but he also has a rather intimidating aura about him, which is enough for most guys to refrain from picking a fight with the Red Sox right-hander.

Comparing the numbers: Dale Murphy VS Larry Walker

(Written on 1/9/2012) Baseball’s Hall of Fame ballot is filled with players who have a chance to get baseball’s highest honor. Unfortunately, the bar has been set so high that many very good players who had tremendous career will not make the Hall of Fame.

Today I seek to get a good feel whether or not Larry Walker is a legitimate Hall of Fame candidate.
