    Shame on the electors for not electing these guys in to the Hall of Fame.

    Just bias or stupidly that they haven't been voted in. I watched a lot of games with those two. Both could hit and field exceptionally well. IMO, Trammel was just slightly below SS Cal Ripken in greatness as a player.

    I was going to mention former Detroit Tiger pitcher Jack Morris being worthy of the HOF as well. His overall 'body of work' should put him in. A couple of things to mention about his career: ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE COMPLETE GAMES (That's 38 more complete games than HOF pitcher Sandy Koufax.)and EIGHTY NINE more victories as well. I will also add that Morris did it with a lower pitching mound than Koufax(MLB lowered the pitchers mound in the early seventies to help the hitters) a more juiced up ball, and at least partially during the Steroid era in baseball.
    Baseball Hall Of Shame is exactly right.

    HOF is partial to East Coast & West Coast Teams. IMO

    Jack Morris is elected to the HOF.
    Long overdue.

    I missed that. Trammel in too.
    A slight cut below Cal Ripken, but not by that much. HOFamer Alan Trammel.
