Trammell is ok but morris had a good w-l record and not much else.
The four World Series rings had a lot to do with Morris induction...
I'm OK with both selections
Both were borderline selections and among the best at their positions
The BWAA HOF picks will be announced next month. I think chipper jones and jim thome will make it though the steroid scandal may cost thome some votes. Hope bonds and clemens also get in finally.
Three not four.
Morris was an Alpha Male Ace. He demanded victory and would scowl at his teammates if they made errors behind him. He was money when you needed a win. Appeared to be an ornery type, but was an intense competitor who made everyone around him that much more focused on their jobs.
If you elect Jack Morris ....why not Denny McClain and Mickey Lolich?
Yeah - that's what the morris-lovers always said. "He pitched to the score" and had a so-so ERA because he was willing to give up meaningless runs when his team was ahead 10-1. .
Mac was a gambler and lolich a fatty. Case closed.
Babe Ruth was a gambler and a fatty
