He did have the most wins of the 80's and I think he suffered a bit from adjusting to the DH. I'm not an advocate of him being in the HOF but I think some of those things have to be taken into account when talking about Morris.
As Joe Posnanski has pointed out, the players from the 80's are vastly under represented in the HOF.
