There is one thing, when the subject is Jack Morris and his not being elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame to this point, I don’t understand above all else
It’s that he won more games than any major league pitcher during the 1980s.
That alone should make him an automatic Hall of Famer, shouldn’t it?
Greg Maddux won more games than any pitcher in the 1990s, and he’s lock to not only get into the Hall of Fame, but be inducted on the first ballot.
Was there was any question Jim Palmer would get in? Or Juan Marichal? Or Warren Spahn? They won more games than any pitchers in the following decades: The 1970s, 1960s and 1950s. And so it has been for every pitcher with the most victories in each decade of the 20th Century.
