All Bases Covered: Hall of Fame ballot: Returning players

Jacket Morris and his schitterende stats! ~ “Superb stats, but they seem be exactly not sufficient for a fleck in Cooperstown.” Spot on!

Jack Morris

Morris staat al sinds 1999 op de ballot. De voormalige startende werper ontvangt elk jaar steeds iets meer stemmen, maar steeds niet genoeg. In zijn tiende jaar ontving hij van ruim 52% van de schrijvers een stem en vorig jaar steeg hij slechts 1%. Het lijkt voor hem, met het oog op pitchers die in de komende jaren op de ballot zullen komen (Clemens, Maddux, Glavine, Mussina, Johnson, etc.), lastig om de Hall of Fame ooit te halen. Hij had een schitterende carriere, maar lijkt niet in het rijtje Nolan Ryan, Cy Young, Christy Mathewson en Carlton Fisk (om maar eens een paar namen te noemen) te passen. Zijn career win-loss record is 254-186 en hij eindigde met een ERA van 3.90 en bijna 2500 K’s. Hij was vijf keer All-Star, won vier World Series en werd in 1991 World Series MVP voor de Minnesota Twins. Schitterende stats, maar ze lijken net niet toereikend te zijn voor een plekje in Cooperstown. Het enige wat voor Morris spreekt op dit moment is dat vorig jaar Bert Blyleven, met enigszins vergelijkbare stats wel in de Hall of Fame gestemd werd. Als hij nog een kans heeft, met het oog op de eerdergenoemde pitchers die de komende jaren op de ballot zullen verschijnen, is het dit jaar. Er zitten tussen de nieuwkomers namelijk nog geen grote pitchers. Grappig weetje over Jack Morris is dat hij het record in Opening Day Starts heeft, hij startte 14 keer de season opener voor zijn team.

Stoere Jack Morris lusten zeker om zijn zaad te planten in de geurige portalen van Cooperstown en zeggen: "Ich bin ein Hall of Fame, en fuck je, je moeder kelder motherfuckers!"

Waarom is Morris in vergelijking met werpers en Calrton Fisk?

From Google Translate:

Jack Morris
Morris has always been on the 1999 ballot. The former starting pitcher receives each year slightly more votes, but still not enough. In his tenth year he received more than 52% of the writers a voice, and last year it rose only 1%. It seemed to him, in view of pitchers in the coming years will be on the ballot (Clemens, Maddux, Glavine, Mussina, Johnson, etc.), hard to the Hall of Fame ever get. He had a brilliant career, but does not appear in the row of Nolan Ryan, Cy Young, Christy Mathewson and Carlton Fisk (to name but a few to name) to apply. His career win-loss record is 254-186 and he finished with an ERA of 3.90 and nearly 2,500 K's. He was All-Star five times, won four World Series and World Series MVP in 1991 for the Minnesota Twins. Excellent condition, but they seem just to be inadequate for a spot in Cooperstown. The only thing for Morris speaks at this time last year that Bert Blyleven, with somewhat similar stats are in the Hall of Fame voted. If he has a chance, in view of the aforementioned pitchers in the coming year on the ballot will appear, this year. There are among the newcomers as yet no great pitchers. Funny you know about Jack Morris is that he has record in Opening Day Starts, he started 14 times the season opener for his team.

Yeah, well, what about Dutch to Japanese, Japanese to Haitian Creole, Haitian Creole to Yiddish, and Yiddish to English??

Morris was the 1999 vote. Former starting pitcher would get Votes in a few years each, more is not enough. He received 10 - year 52% of the voice of the artist, up only 1 percent in the past year. He was, in view of the hall of Fame pitcher for years to come some very difficult, (Clement, maddux, Glavine, mussina, Johnson, etc.) will never get a vote. He has a distinguished career, Nolen Rijn to apply for, whether young, Christie mathevson, and Carton Fisk (the name, to name a few) will not appear on the line. His career win - loss record is 186-254, so he finished the 2500 K and 3.90 era. he is in Minnesota Twin All - Star five times I want the world Series of death and four World Series in 1991. terms, but is to be enough for a place in kooperstovn right. the only thing that Bert blileven was a statistically Morris a bit like , said last year in the time to vote for hall of fame. if he has a chance, look in the Pitchers susmansyone on the ballot for next year, will appear this year. There is also a new pitcher in the big love again. Jack Morris is funny you know, he has a record of levels - start the day, he Started 14 times in the opening match of a team with him

I like this on Palmeiro and steroids:

Hij wordt ervan verdacht steroids gebruikt te hebben. Net als McGwire verklaarde hij voor de Supreme Court dat hij dit niet gedaan had.


From a certain distance, Congress and the Supreme Court probably do look like the same thing. God knows what we would make of the Dutch government institutions.

Nothing like skimming through the newsblog with eyes partly unfocused and briefly wondering if I've had a stroke.

#5 is like an email from my postdoc.

If you are knowledgeable about the subject, you can mostly figure out the meaning. Except maybe "I want the world Series of death," that just freaks me out a little.

e is in Minnesota Twin All - Star five times I want the world Series of death


Put him in the HOF - he was even more feared than Jim Rice!

If you think Jeff Bagwell, you think immediately of the Houston Astros batting stance and are separate. He was with teammate Craig Biggio in the nineties and the beginning of this century the face of the Houston Astros. Bagwell is renowned for his strength, but also for his baserunning. He hit 449 homers in his career, 2314 hits and had an average of .297. Normally not directly enough for the Hall of Fame. But Jeff Bagwell was in his time the best first baseman in Major League and that weighs heavily on many writers. Bagwell in 1991 Rookie of the Year and was the National League MVP three years later. 1994 was his best season: the season that was shortened because of the strike by the players, he hit .368 with 39 homeruns in only 400 at bats. In the years (1991-2005) in which Bagwell played in the Major League, he was second in RBIs, third in runs, hits and walks and fifth in home runs. He is one of only six players ever with over 400 home runs and 200 stolen bases. Bagwell seems a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame and received last year in his first year on the ballot, already 41.7% of the writers a voice.

Seems Amsterdam ballplayer Seb Visser came across this thread and Tweeted...

"Haha.. Een Amerikaanse honkbalnieuwssite heeft een stukje van mij overgenomen.. De reacties zijn hilarisch!"

Couldn't agree more!

I think I saw in there that they want Rich Lederer to take up Rick VandenHurk's Hall of Fame cause.

Nolen Rijn to apply for, whether young, Christie mathevson, and Carton Fisk (the name, to name a few)



I want to know when "Cy Young" turned into "whether young."
