El-Pietro, I'm of the view that if Maradona hadn't scored that goal against England and hand-balled a few minutes earlier, then he'd have been forgotten by most people. One World Cup shouldn't define a career. An equivalent soccer career might be that of George Best's - flashes of astonishing brilliance, but undone (prematurely?) by activities off the pitch. I certainly don't think Maradona can be compared to Mays. Yes, similarly to Maradona, Mays had "that catch"; however, Mays sustained a phenomenally high level for a great many years.
In fact, if Maradona were a MLB player, he wouldn't make the Hall of Fame. He didn't do enough for long enough. Despite having a pretty good career at Naples, it doesn't even compare with that of, say, Lewindowski's at Borussia Dortmund and, now, Bayern Munich. I'm the contrarian who'd have Maradona in the Hall of the Very Good.
