Congrats to Marvin Miller and Ted Simmons on getting elected into the HOF. Worthy choices. I was still pulling for Sweet Lou though.

While I have no prob voting in Miller, he should have been in before he died. I don't get voting someone after they are 6 feet honor. How does a dead man feel "honored"?

I hear you. I think I actually read or heard someone say that his family felt the same way.

Well, he specifically asked NOT to be inducted

Quote:
In 2008, four years before he died, Miller sent a letter to the BBWAA saying he didn't want to be considered anymore.
