Former Tigers ace Jack Morris, asked to compare himself and current Tigers ace Justin Verlander: “I think the only real comparison is that it took us both a few years to really get to a point where we understood it all, and he’s at that point now.”
Yeah, that point being Game 5…1992.
...The timing can be perfect for the St. Paul native, whose name will be back on the ballot when it comes out in the next month or so. Morris was the top finisher not elected in the most-recent vote, receiving 66.7 percent. Seventy-five percent is needed for election.
Now voters can be thinking Tigers and seeing Morris.
“I’ve gotten a lot of encouragement, being around all these writers during the postseason,” Morris said. “But I’ve just got to stay on the same plane. I can’t get too high, can’t get too low. It is what it is; it’s going to happen, if it’s meant to be. If it’s not meant to be, it’s going to be that way, too.”
Morris is up for election for a 14th year. It took former Twins pitcher Bert Blyleven 14 years for election.
