Ray Lankford for the Hall of Fame

Dec 3, 2009, 8:45 AM EDT

A non-serious proposal from DanUpBaby at Viva El Birdos that, amazingly, is far more convincing than the legitimate arguments sportswriters make in favor of guys like Jack Morris.

    Statistics, schmatistics. The relevent question is: Did Ray ever dog it to first base in a key situation?

    Why does MSNBC post this type of garbage over and over by this fool? Everyday its the same old nonsense, get someone to write “real” stories for a change.

    Wow. Why would anyone ever write a comment like this? What’s the harm in MSNBC (NBC Sports, actually) giving a pretty funny story a wider audience? What’s *really* bothering you, Bart? Tell us about your childhood…
    And Craig’s right on — that’s a better case than anyone has ever made for Morris. Or Rice. Or Sutter.

    Bart,
    Unless you’re in a hostage situation that you failed to explain, no one’s making you read, dude. The Internet’s a big place; I’m sure there’s a dark corner of it that will appreciate your charming ways.
    Craig,
    I’m a few years older than Danup, but my Lankford experience is very similar. Lankford was the first player whose entire career I followed closely, and he debuted in the year I bought my first Bill James book, so I always knew he was a better player than he got credit for being. Hall of Very Good indeed.

    Being small is no sin, if everybody else around you is taller, it is obvious you would desire to seem taller also.
