Today is the start of the Winter Meetings. If you are a fan of rumors and trades, then this is your type of event. Unless you’re a Mets fan, because Sandy Alderson basically said the Mets won’t be making any big splashes.
Alan Trammell and Jack Morris both made the Hall-of-Fame yesterday. Trammell was very well deserving as a good hitter, but one of the better defensive shortstops of his era. Morris is another story. Morris posted a 105 ERA+ and graded out as a borderline starting pitcher throughout his career. I find it hard to believe he made it in before Mike Mussina.
This is someone who belongs in the “Hall-of-Good” as some fans like to call it.
