    If you want to make your head hurt go over to fangraphs and sort pitchers by career WAR and try to figure out why guys like Mike Mussina and Kevin Brown aren’t in the Hall. The Hall is all out of whack as far as pitchers go.

    I mean fWAR isn’t the final decision maker but once you accumulate a bunch of it, it becomes pretty easy to build a case.
    Mussina will be in, and soon. Brown will not, he was a PED user who came up for a vote at the worst time for PED users.

    Bob Castellini is on the 16 member committee this year.

    This year's panel includes six Hall of Fame players -- George Brett, Rod Carew, Dennis Eckersley, Don Sutton, Dave Winfield and Robin Yount -- in addition to Hall of Fame manager Bobby Cox and Hall of Fame executive John Schuerholz, both of the Braves.

    Mets general manager Sandy Alderson, former Blue Jays president Paul Beeston, Reds president Bob Castellini, Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt, Royals chairman David Glass, veteran BBWAA members Bob Elliott and Jayson Stark, and historian Steve Hirdt of the Elias Sport Bureau make up the remainder of the group.

    Really happy for Trammell. Not so much for Morris.

    I'm surprised that​ anyone made it. The Veterans' Committee has a well-deserved reputation for not voting for anybody.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    There is literally no logical reason Jack Morris is a Hall of Fame baseball player. None.

    Cooperstown will be Tiger town this summer. Good for those two. They were both stars when I came in to my baseball awareness. Cool to see them in no matter what people perceive as their worth.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13, 15
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    One of them is actually worthy of being a Hall of Famer. The other one is nowhere remotely close.

    He was one of the best starting pitchers in MLB for at least a decade. The problem is that he played when there weren't that many outstanding starting pitchers. So his overall numbers say no, but his comparison to his peers say yes.
    The team Matheny described several times this weekend as the team he thinks the Cardinals could be, is actually the team the Reds have become.

    Assuming Jack Morris is a Hall of Famer, there's going to be a SLEW of pitchers getting in from this point forward. Bar has been set fairly low.
