Look. I can understand Jack Morris not getting into the Baseball Hall of Fame. I voted for him.
I love the Baseball Hall of Fame. And I hate it.
Edward McClelland says he has been a Detroit Tigers fans since the days of Lou and Tram.
For the first time since 1996 and for just the eighth time in history, the Baseball Writers’ Association of America (BBWAA) has failed to elect anyone to the Hall of Fame.
Lou Whitaker and Alan Trammell were the Tigers’ double-play combination — that is, the second baseman and shortstop — for more than a decade.
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.
I was watching the MLB Network the last couple nights, a show called “Clubhouse Confidential,” and they came out with statistical comparisons that bode favorably for Alan Trammell as a Hall of Fame candidate.
Trammell was the MVP of the 1984 World Series, and should have won MVP honors in 1987, when he had an utterly brilliant season.
Kirk Gibson and Alan Trammell back in Detroit, this time as part of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
