“Al’s a very good friend,” Jackson said of the New York Yankees third baseman in the latest issue of Sports Illustrated. “But I think there are real questions about his numbers. As much as I like him, what he admitted about his usage does cloud some of his records.” – espn

Jackson told the magazine, “I didn’t see Gary Carter as a Hall of Famer.’’ also mentioning Kirby Puckett, Don Sutton, Phil Niekro, Bert Blyleven and even Jim  Rice.nypost

Former #Yankee HOF Reggie Jackson sounded off (in a recent Sports Illustrated interview) on A-Rod and the recently deceased NY Mets Gary Carter! He said that A-Rod doesn’t deserve to be in the HOF for admitting to HGH usage in the past, and Carter doesn’t deserve a nod because he didn’t put up the stats. The Mets fired right back at Reggie!
