Morris, Trammell make Baseball Hall of Fame

Former Tigers teammates Jack Morris and Alan Trammell were elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Modern Baseball Era Committee after previously falling short of induction to Cooperstown.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The debate over Jack Morris was one of the most contentious in Hall of Fame history, and while the writers ultimately rejected Morris, he's now going to Cooperstown -- and he'll be joined by Alan Trammell, his longtime Tigers teammate. Morris and Trammell were elected by the 16-person Modern Era Ballot committee. Trammell should have been elected long ago, a player who ranked eighth all time among shortstops in WAR. Morris doesn't have much of an analytic case with a 3.90 career ERA, but he does have Game 7 of the 1991 World Series. This time, that was enough to get him the support he needed.

Are the Blue Jays the best fit for J.D. Martinez?

The Jays have Josh Donaldson for one more year before he hits free agency. If they're going to keep him, they better go all-in and sign a big bat now that Jose Bautista's gone.

Free agents who should sign now: Jose Bautista

Last offseason, Bautista ended up waiting until the end of January and this offseason is in an even worse position than last after a 2017 that was worse than 2016.
