Murphy definitely gets my vote. Tiant and Trammell are deserving too imo.

Ted Simmons to me is an issue one that got the shaft many years ago. He was essentially punished for not being in the same category as Johnny Bench. His numbers for a catcher should make him a lock

I like a few guys on the list, but in my opinion Marvin Miller is the most important and should've been in a long time ago.

+1 The others make the list of the "very good," but not HOF worthy.

Dwight Evans isn't even on the list? Some cutoff date thing?

I'm having trouble understanding why Miller is even included. Every other name on that list is a former player. Why would Miller not have to sit out until the next Executives vote?
