Rays manager Kevin Cash didn't mince words when asked about the power of the division rival New York Yankees: "It's going to be very challenging." Said he's already done some sketching on what facing that lineup will look like.

So the same voting process that put a terrible commissioner like Bowie Kuhn into the Hall of Fame managed to conjure up just seven of 16 votes for Marvin Miller, the union exec whose work made the game better?

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.

You have to wonder if the heavy lean towards AL contemporaries among the former players voting on the Modern Era Committee didn't help Alan Trammell and Jack Morris finally get into the Hall of Fame in this latest iteration of the Veterans Committee. Trammell was deserving but let down by the BBWAA ballot, while Morris is sure to be one of the most controversial selections of the last 30-plus years.
