Barry Larkin has just been elected to the baseball Hall of Fame. I didn't think he was quite deserving of that honor, though I would rate him just below that category.
ESPN says: "Playing from 1986-04 -- all with his hometown Reds -- Larkin hit .295 with 198 home runs, 960 RBIs, 2,340 hits and 379 stolen bases. A 12-time All-Star, he won the 1995 NL MVP award, three Gold Gloves and the 1990 World Series." http://espn.go.com/mlb/hof12/story/_...ball-hall-fame
Considering the era in which he played, those do not seem to be overwhelming statistics, with the exception of being a 12-time All-Star, which I think does show how the fans thought about him at the time.
The ones who did not get enough votes for inclusion who I think possibly should include Jack Morris, Edgar Martinez and Mark McGwire.
What do you think about this?
