Will Angels keep Guerrero for purposes of the Hall?

We have discussed this topic numerous times this year, and, apparently, the media finally asked a few questions about it:  Vladimir Guerrero could be first Angel in the Hall -- latimes.com.  Check out what was said -- and not said -- by the key players in this drama:

Vladimir Guerrero:

Guerrero wants to stay. He has made that absolutely clear. He has no desire to test the market.

Mike Scioscia:

"There are certain things that define achievement as an organization, championships in particular," Scioscia said. "When you win a World Series, that's what you strive for. That's what really defines you as an organization.

"Having someone go into the Hall of Fame is a great tribute to a player. It reflects on the organization, certainly. But, in my opinion, world championships are the crowning glory for an organization."

Arte Moreno:

He declined our interview request.

The article also implies that Guerrero's price tag might be low this offseason because he have may have limited options given that (i) he cannot play the outfield on a regular basis (thus eliminating any NL team), (ii) the Yankees may have to reserve the DH spot for Posada, and (iii) the Red Sox have Ortiz.
