    We could cut Twins management some slack for selecting and developing players. Consider the numbers of prime talent that does not get to MLB and we know the path is not smooth or direct. It is a...

    John, congratulations on twenty. I also "saved" my wife from the streets of Philly, soon to be 46 years.

    Gilmartin's simple metric may be the most compelling reason Morris belongs in HOF.

    I am curious if Garcia is a definite defensive improvement over Delmon Young? And, Willingham?

    I do not see any problems with a team being fiscally smart and not pouring their money on the ground.. Teams spending too much don't do themselves favors either. Maybe Yankees and LA teams can...

    Eighty five million dollars is a whole lot of dough, any way you look at it. I do not require they spend big but I hope they spend smart.

    Not sure good performance of Revere can be used to evaluate this trade in this intance. I hope he does well.

    The Twins traded a surplus player for a bit of a gamble to fill our great need!

    Levisthan: it could be some of us place more weight on what we saw and were aware of over Jack Morris' career rather than a comparison of stats.

    That is valid too. Consider since the beginning...

    Most of this is subjective. Like Hrbek did not ever receive a Gold Glove, (Mattingly received those votes I assume because of his hitting ... but why? it is the best fielders recognition).

    A WS winner requires great plays from an entire team, all throughout the season.

    That Chuck Knoblach and Greg Gagne suckered Lonnie Smith bailed out the team does not in the least diminish Jack...

    I am curious.

    Does anyone have access to attendance figures when Morris was pitching compared to others.

    What wwas Morris' contract compared to the best AL pitchers of his era?

    Spy cake @ 10:32am. Records you want? Blyleven got Roberts record of HR's allowed.
    If the focus to leave both of them out on the face of HR's allowed there would be a case. Neither were the most...

    Koufax is a really high standard to surpass.

    Would Don Drysdale or Robin Roberts and many others be in the HOF if they needed to meet that standard?

    And, I agree with Thrylos, I would have put both Tony O and Kaat in the HOF.

    No doubt there are other snubs, more or less apparent.

    My reasoning is that the HOF is not merely for carbon...

    How many present HOF'rs needed to pass the litmus test of WAR comparisons? That is a new standard.

    Of course Jack Morris belongs in the HOF!

    His numbers may not be as high as some, but he...

    No. The risk to their team is too high. Each individual is too hard to replace.

    Does a player forfeit MLB salary if they experience a career ending, or career altering, or long-term injury?
