Jack Morris

Morris came close to induction last year (67.7%), but with a strong field this year the ex-Detroit Tiger may miss out again. Often remembered for his epic performance in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series, Morris’ career numbers are frequently overlooked. The right-hander finished with 254 career wins, 2478 strikeouts, and an impressive 175 complete games. A couple of factors that may have kept Morris out of the Hall of Fame are his wildness (averaged 88 walks a season), not overly impressive ERA (3.90) and home runs surrendered (average of 25/year). However, Nolan Ryan averaged 120 walks a season and four of the top 5 pitchers in home runs surrendered all-time are in the Hall of Fame. Morris was one of the better pitchers in the 1980s and he should receive his own plaque.
