His HoF score of 38 is below what I think he would need to get in. Like I said before if a player wants to be assured of getting in they need a HoF score of 50 or more, while a 100 or more usually gets in on a first ballot. A guaranteed 1st ballot type will have and HoF score north of 150. Again check out the 5 guys in my signature to see what 1st ballot types look like. You need a combo of hardware and milestones to get in.
