Moeller High School, Cincy, class of '95. Grandpa/father have had season tickets since the 60s. So, yeah, I saw Larkin in person a time or two.
So basically he's not a hall of famer because......your eyes say so. Does that about sum it up?
So if a couple of the elite shortstops of a league aren't hall of famers, who is?
Yeah, that's it basically. To me, he's not a HOFer. If he is to you, then bless your heart. I suspect you couldn't care less about my opinion just like I couldn't care less about yours. So it goes.
Nope, he came back to the school all the time and spoke. He's given money, appeared in ads, all of it. He's a great dude. I'm in no way shape or form annoyed he's in the Hall, he might very well deserve to be there. What annoys me is this notion that it's a slam dunk and anyone who might suggest he shouldn't be in is stupid or "just doesn't get it." Larkin's a guy you could build a case for and could build a case against. But again, it's by no means an outrage he's in.
No worries, my Reds days are over, I'm all Twins now, have been since moving here for college. Now, how about a debate about Pete Rose???
