Listen: Jim Thome Vlad Guerrero Alan Trammell, Jack Morris, Alan Trammell discussed on
"Com, and I do want to hear from you on this hall of fame front today is the induction of six new. Individuals into the major league baseball hall of fame Trevor Hoffman Chipper Jones Jim Thome Vlad Guerrero Alan Trammell in Jack Mars all these guys were on the ballot over the last twenty five thirty years This past ballot I would have voted. For blood Guerrero Jim Thome h Chipper Jones and Trevor Hoffman and Hoffman had a couple of years before he got. In all three, of these guys I voted, for first, time and every time they were. About I told. You that's how I would handle my boat if you're in you're in if you're not you know I almost never, change an opinion, got two guys I've been voting for would have voted for. For years who I fear may not get. In one I'm pretty. Short isn't getting in but one is made a. Nice move up into voting standings the last couple of years is Edgar Martinez I know he's only d. h. he. Played third base, for the early stages career he never played tremendously well went to first base played, little first base but not much really but he was the most feared hitter for years. In the American League and Edgar has been on about now for a while and he's got an increased number of. Boats so he's, trending toward potentially making it, I think, of a majority of fame I. Would vote for. Him every time the other guy I would vote for it's been on for a couple of years now and his, years of starting, to wane he's not going to be on the ballot that. Much longer is the crime dog Fred McGriff Talk about feared. Haters again power guy. Different, teams different leagues no during the steroid era, no hints about him, using steroids and yet was a guy with thirty to forty home runs, every single year I think McGregor hall of Famer the voting population has not to this point and, he hasn't really gotten close so I. Think he's going to have a real tough time getting in but I would. Have voted for those two and a four guys who got in the to via the veterans committee Jack Morris and Alan Trammell. Forever I made the argument for Jack Morris big game Jack for a decade Tigers best pitcher And postseason big games who. Is bigger than Jack Morris almost nobody in the last. Twenty five thirty years in baseball and he got close and they almost put him in on his final ballot and the fifteen years. I thought he should have gotten envy the writers he didn't this, is one, where I, think the, veterans, committee got it right, and basically overturned the fact that the writers turn their back on him for fifteen years the other guys Alan. Trammell who was one of the guys who I never voted for I just thought he was short and the. Person who's baseball opinion I respect more than any on the planet is, my dad 'cause I've spent my fifty years while on a game he spent his almost ninety years following the game, and still, is working and scouting. At age eighty nine for the Boston, Red Sox, so it's been his life and he Worked for the Detroit Tigers during the time in Alan. Trammell was there and he said you just didn't see what he. Did for that team I did I was there I was. Part of it he was the leader and he was. The glue and he was the captain he was the backbone some of the numbers come up short and while I almost always take. My father's word as gospel and bible I think he's. A little influenced by, the guy I think he liked him. I think because he was there he's overstating and overestimating what he did The veterans committee bought into the same thing my father's bought into and they put him in so I'm not going to blue when announced him today but I. Just don't think them. As a hall of Famer and I didn't vote. For him would not have voted former by Atta vote any of those years he's getting into that congratulations to Alan Trammell, wouldn't have got my vote I want your, vote on something and I'll lay it, out for you when we get back, because different hall of fame baseball, is the one we're talking about today but the pro football hall of fame it's next week NBA hall of fame which is the basketball of fame which is a little different Hockey. Hall of fame and the like different groups. Are in charge of putting people into the hall. Of fame and they have. Different ways of establishing it I, want to get your thoughts on character Should character play into whether someone is elected to the hall, of fame it is in some it's at, least considered in others in some it's, pretty much left at the door before, they invite anybody in doesn't really, matter what you characters I wanna get your take on how important character should be when talking about whether someone should or shouldn't be Famer eight five five two one two four CBS.
