    I think a lot of people actually predicted he would get in via the Veteran's Committee due to how close he was in his final BBWAA year. The conversation is about whether or not he deserves to get in. I haven't heard an argument as to why he deserves it.

    You haven't made an argument for why Morris is deserving of being inducted.

    I'd say Juan is a dominant Twins reliever more than a good Tigers starter. Either way, that's preposterous. I'm not sure if you're joking, because I can never tell with you.

    While we're at it, let's start a campaign for Jeremy Bonderman.

    and while I'm not an avid Morris supporter, I'd rather have him in there than Vizquel. Morris had 6 seasons of 4+ WAR while Vizquel had two. If you go by WAA (wins above average), Morris has 5 seasons with 2+ while Omar had only one. At least you can say that Morris had several All-Star caliber seasons, even if he was never really great. Also, even in those years where Morris was about league average, he was still providing a lot of innings. I'd take a league average starter over a league average infielder any day.

    Great to see Alan Trammell in the Hall of Fame, although something appears to be missing.

    I sure criticize this team a lot to be a homer.

    And at least I don't claim to be a Rangers fan one year, and then claim to be an Astros fan the next all while pimping the Brewers.

    Short, but great peak. 2x MVP, should have been a 3x MVP.

    What does you flip flopping between being a Rangers and Astros fan have to do with the Braves?

    Is that worse than switching from the Rangers to Astros in a year?
