Tim Brown talks Jack Morris:
I once had lunch with a retired Jack Morris in Santa Monica, the interview set up by a public relations firm. Morris was stumping, I think, for something All-Star game related, so we talked about that for a while over iced teas and tuna sandwiches. Morris had come up short in a handful of Hall votes. We talked about that, too. He asked if I’d voted for him. I said I hadn’t. He said he compared favorably with Bert Blyleven. I said I hadn’t voted for him, either.
What I know is this: I cannot vote for a player who used performance-enhancing drugs, or one who I strongly believe used them. I wish I didn’t care. But I do.
And adds another ballot to the total:
Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Edgar Martinez, Mike Piazza, Tim Raines, Curt Schilling and Larry Walker.
for his generous support.
