No to Biggio. 3,000 hits shouldn't automatically get you in. Unspectacular career, one of the most overrated defensive players of all time. Far below average for his career. 2nd half of his career was really unremarkable, and it's where he racked up all the hits for 3,000. If he quit 2 years earlier he isn't even a consideration, IMO. I'm not automatically rewarding a guy for 1.4 and -0.7 WAR seasons.

Really, no love for Jack Morris? C'mon guys.

EDIT: Shit, I accidentally voted for Rondell White. He definitely does not deserve.
Sure, let's vote in the guy with the same career ERA+ as Tim Wakefield and Kevin Millwood.

One of the most iconic players of the last 30 years, amazing performances in both the 84 and 91 World Series. Yes his stats don't quite hold up, but it's the hall of fame, not hall of stat.
A handful of games does not make a career. It IS the hall of stat for players, because stats equal worth.

I fully understand that his stats aren't there, I get that. I'm just a Tigers fan hoping for a hero of my city to make it to the Hall of Fame. Oh well.
You weren't even alive when Jack Morris was a Tiger! I hate to ruin your day but he'll never come close to getting in.

He got 67% last year! That's pretty damn close.
he's got 2 more chances, going to be tough in such a stacked class.
