It has long seemed preposterous Jack Morris, who won more games than any pitcher during the 1980s, is not in baseball’s Hall of Fame. Every decade prior to that, the pitcher who won the most games, is in the Hall.

Morris’ ERA should not be the issue many people are making of it because he pitched in the era of extensive steroid use, and subsequently huge offensive numbers. It was only only slightly better than the ERA of the time period he pitched, but that was the case with many Hall of Fame pitchers.

So Morris is up to 66-something percent of the vote, and it takes being named on 75 percent of the ballots to get in. That’s momentum toward getting voted in by the writers, which would be his just due. He has two years left on the ballot.
