Michael Weiner on the Marvin Miller snub

Marvin Miller

MLBPA executive director Michael Weiner perfectly sums up Marvin Miller failing to make the Hall of Fame:

Marvin’s legacy is undiminished by this vote; the Hall, by contrast, once again squandered a chance to better itself as an institution.

The number one topic of conversation at the Winter Meetings so far is the Jayson Werth contract. Second is definitely the Miller snub. There are some who don’t think it’s a big deal. There are many more who think it’s a travesty. There is no one, however, save the people who voted against his induction, who are pleased with the outcome.

    Speaking of snubs, you might want to correct the spelling of Michael Weiner’s name.

    I wouldn’t exactly call it a “snub” when a majority of committee members voted for Miller, but not a high enough majority to get him into the Hall of Fame. That’s being picky though: I think he should go in.

    This is silly. The building has two sections. One being the HOF, and one being the museum. Miller belongs in the museum, not in the HOF. Of course, I believe the same thing about any owners or commissioners that have be “elected” to the HOF.

      Great point! After all, it is impossible to have an important or long-lasting impact on the game of baseball off of the playing field.

    Congratulations to the hall for once again getting it completely wrong! The impact he had on the game speaks for itself. This is just reprehensible.
