AAA: SWB (5-2) won 11-1. 3B Gleyber Torres 2 for 3, 2 RBI. Currently hitting .370 and could be called up Wednesday at the earliest to push his arbitration/free agency back a year. With Wade at .097 and Andujar at .107, it really looks like Gleyber could be up next week. If we only knew what was going on with Brandon Drury and those headaches. DH Mike Ford 2 solo HR.

Reeves 2 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 W, 2 K.
Schwaab (L) 3 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 2 W, 3 K.

I hate this new “speed up the game” rule that puts a runner on second to start the inning in extra innings in the minors. What a joke. A leadoff double scored the run, which is why Schwaab’s run was unearned. Without that rule, maybe no one scores that inning.

High A:  Tampa (2-2) lost 3-1. CF Pablo Olivares 2 hits, solo HR. 1B Brandon Wagner 2 hits.

Tiger Town. Modern Era (1970-1987) Veterans’ Committee elects Morris & Trammell to HOF. Simmons just misses.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The 16-member Modern Era (1970-1987) Veterans’ Committee elected former Tiger teammates Jack Morris and Alan Trammell to the Hall of Fame on Sunday.

You needed 12 votes or more to get in. Ex-Cardinal and Brewers catcher Ted Simmons just missed, getting 11 votes.

Morris pitched for the Tigers from 1977-1990, the Twins in 1991, and the Blue Jays 1992-1994. He was a 5x All-Star, and a WS winner in 1984, 1991 and 1992. He was the WS MVP in 1991.

Morris threw a no-hitter, and in his career was 254-186 with an ERA of 3.90, ERA+ 105. The ERA is probably what kept him out of the HOF until now. His 162 game average was 16-12, 3.90. Also, he is only listed as the 164th best pitcher of all-time on baseball reference.

But a big game pitcher, and a horse. A bulldog, if you will.

He twice led the league in wins. He led the league in games started twice and complete games once, innings pitched once, and strikeouts once.

He received CYA consideration 7x and MVP consideration 5x. He was a 20-game winner 3x.

In 1984, he went 19-11, 3.60 for the WS Champion Tigers. He won 2 WS games.

In 1991, he went 18-12, 3.43 for the WS Champion Twins, and earned WS MVP honors with his 10 inning shutout in Game 7 of the WS. He won 2 WS games.

He went 21-6, 4.04 for the 1992 Blue Jays, leading the majors in wins, but lost 2 WS games.

He also was on the 1993 Blue Jay team that won the WS, but was 7-12, 6.19 and left off the postseason roster. He went 7-4, 3.80 in the postseason in 13 starts, losing three of his last four postseason starts.

His teammate, Trammell, was a SS from 1977-1996, all with the Tigers. Trammell was the WS MVP for those 1984 Tigers. He hit .285 with over 2300 hits in his career.

He was a 6x All Star, 3x Silver Slugger and 4x Gold Glove winner.

He received MVP consideration 7x, and finished in the top 10 3x. He was runnerup for the MVP in 1987.

In 1984, he hit .314-14-69 with 19 SB. His OPS+ was 136.

In 1987, he hit .343-28-105 with 21 SB, OPS+ 155.

His 162 game average was .285-13-71 with 17 SB and an OPS+ of 110.

In 13 postseason games, he hit .333 with 3 hr and 11 RBI. He is listed as the 11th greatest SS of all-time, one notch above Derek Jeter.

Simmons, who missed by one vote, was with the Cardinals 1968-1980, the Brewers 1981-1985 and Braves 1986-1988.

Simmons, primarily a catcher, had over 2400 hits and was an 8x all-star and a 1x Silver Slugger who was overshadowed by Johnny Bench for much of his career.

Simmons received MVP consideration 7x, finishing in the top 10 3X.

His 162 game average was .285-16-92, OPS+ 118, and he is considered the 10th best catcher of all-time. His defense may be what is keeping him out of the HOF.

He was a consistent .300 hitter for a while, and drove in 100 runs in three different seasons.

He finally made the postseason in 1981 and 1982 with the Brewers, and in 17 postseason games hit .186-3-8.

Tough to miss out by just one vote.
