Pretty happy for Trammell. I think Morris however is one of the worst choices in years.

Of course the have to have the good stats over a prolonged period of Baseball is 'a marathon, not a sprint', but the biggest moments are what is recalled decades later.

Kirk Gibson had THE MOMENT but not the lengthy career...but, IMO, that's exactly the kind of truly Legendary Moment I'm referring to.

Grinders do get in, but they are Eddie Murrays, not Harold Baines.

Jack Morris HAD a MOMENT as described above, Ted Simmons, left out by a single vote, did not.
