Detroit Tigers: Morris and Trammell Finally in Hall of Fame
Yesterday, the BBWA voted in the 2018 HoF class, and ’84 Detroit Tigers Jack Morris and Alan Trammell finally got the recognition they deserved when they were voted in.
According to Brandon Day, of Bless You Boys, the Modern Era Committee righted a couple of wrongs that had been done to the Detroit Tigers. After all, the case was made that Trammell was the greatest shortstop in Detroit Tigers history.
It was an agonizing wait for Tigers fans as well as for the duo. They were up against a stacked class that the Modern Era Committee had to chose from.
Both Trammell and Morris spent fourteen years together as teammates with the Tigers. Including as teammates during the last world series win in the Tigers franchise.
But what about another member of the ’84 Tigers, Lou Whitaker? The Detroit Free Press also has a piece on the next five Detroit Tigers who should be in the Hall of Fame next.
The Detroit Tigers have plenty of prospects, one of which might one day end up in the Hall of Fame alongside Trammell and Morris.
In other Tigers news, the team has pursued a contract extension with Nick Castellanos according to Evan Woodbury of Mlive.com. Woodbury also notes that GM Al Avila is confident a deal to trade Ian Kinsler away will get done soon.
Pitcher Michael Fulmer could find himself shipped away if the right team with prospects is aggressive enough per George Sipple of the Detroit Free Press.
