JACK MORRIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Jack Morris: 'I'm tired of getting scrutinized'

Is it safe to talk about Jack Morris again? A couple of weeks ago the former pitcher concluded his stint on the Hall of Fame ballot, falling just short (again) of the 75% needed to be enshrined in Cooperstown.  Meaning, quite simply, we're done talking Morris until he hits the Veterans Committee ballot in a few years, right?  Probably. That is until someone asks Morris...

Tom Kelly on Jack Morris: 'He's a Hall of Famer'

MINNEAPOLIS -- Tom Kelly didn't expect Jack Morris would get the votes needed to earn a trip to Cooperstown, but that didn't make it any easier to swallow for Morris' former manager. "I'm very disappointed," said Kelly, who managed Morris during the pitcher's only season with the Minnesota Twins in 1991. "He was great to have on the ball club. Every...

Ex-Twin Jack Morris denied Hall of Fame entry for 15th time

For the 15th and final time by the writers, former Twins pitcher Jack Morris was denied entry into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Morris received 61.5 percent of votes from the Baseball Writers Association of America, down from 67.7 percent in 2013. Players need 75 percent of the votes in order to be inducted. Three players were inducted into this year's Hall of Fame class...

Last shot: Will Hall call Jack Morris after 14 rejections?

Mirroring his career as one of the sport's toughest starting pitchers, the case for making Jack Morris a Hall of Famer has grown stronger as the game has gone on. To leave this metaphorical mound with one more victory, though, Morris needs a furious late rally behind him. The results will be announced on Wednesday. ''The trend has been that when you get to that point...

Last chance: Will Hall call include Jack Morris?

Mirroring his career as one of the sport's toughest starting pitchers, the case for making Jack Morris a Hall of Famer has grown stronger as the game has gone on. To leave this metaphorical mound with one more victory, though, Morris needs a furious late rally behind him. The results will be announced on Wednesday.

Lou Whitaker doesn’t seem too impressed by Jack Morris’ Hall of Fame candidacy (AUDIO)

This coming Wednesday the Baseball Hall of Fame will announce the 2014 class with plenty of focus on former Tigers, Twins and Blue Jays pitcher Jack Morris. The focus lies there for many fans and writers (including those in Detroit) since this is Morris’ last shot at Cooperstown via the traditional ballot (he could be selected via the Veterans Committee in 2016). Currently a former...

Lou Whitaker doesn't support Jack Morris for the Hall of Fame

A lot of the drama has been sucked out of Wednesday's announcement of the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame class. We know with some degree of certainty that Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine will be elected, and we're pretty confident Frank Thomas will be joining them. The biggest questions surround the players in that 60-75% range and whether or not they'll earn election this year...

Lou Whitaker: Jack Morris "Was No Better" Than Me

It's that time of year, gang, time to complain about Jack Morris and his Hall of Fame credentials...or lack thereof. The latest to pile on?  Lou Whitaker. Recently, the former All-Star second baseman was asked about Morris and his response, well, suffice it to say...the 254-game winner won't be inviting his old Detroit Tigers teammate over to dinner anytime soon...

Jack Morris teammate Lou Whitaker questions his Hall credentials

As Jack Morris prepares for his 15th and final appearance on the National Baseball Hall of Fame ballot, his own Detroit Tigers teammate isn’t sure he is any more worthy than himself, or fellow tiger Alan Trammell (who is on the ballot for the 13th time).  The Detroit News writer Tony Paul reports that Whitaker loves his former teammate, but doesn’t see the distinction between...

Does every World Series champion have a Hall of Famer?

Last weekend, I saw an interesting article in colleague Mike Petriello’s Twitter timeline. It was from retired Detroit News sportswriter/columnist Jerry Green, who was — for the 15th and final time — advocating for Jack Morris‘ Hall of Fame candidacy. Without getting into a line-by-line critique of the article, there were several things in the […]
