Barry Larkin, Hall of Famer: Larkin, who spent his entire 19-year career with the Cincinnati Reds, was the lone player inducted into the Hall of Fame on his third year of the ballot. Larkin received 86.4% of the vote of the Baseball Writers' Association of America, eclipsing the 75% needed for induction.

I can remember watching him sail throws over first base and saying "Damn, why aren't we playing Kurt Stillwell?" Then he kinda turned things around, a little.

I think Jack Morris should be in. Could be my homer vision kicking in.

The Tim Raines total is starting to drive me nuts. How is he still down around 50%?

What the fuck does Tim Raines have to do to convince these assholes he's a Hall of Famer? It's a goddamn crime.

And he probably doesn't have a chance with the next, what, three years with the names coming up for eligibility? I'd link it, but I want to go comment on how Don Mattingly is secretly pissed that he didn't take any performance enhancers.
