Morris had 8 above average years, but none at a Hall of Fame dominant level. Never lead the league in ERA (the best he ever finished was 5th), never won a Cy Young award, didn't make it to any of the major Hall of Fame milestones (300 wins, 3000 K's), and the only categories he made it into the Top 25 for his career is BB allowed, ER allowed, and Wild Pitches.
Nice to see that someone realizes just how mediocre some of Morris' stats are when they're picked apart. The key here is the fact that he ranks top 25 in three not so flattering categories, yet he doesn't come close in the one's that count. Blyleven is the guy that needs to get Hall of Fame love. The dude has 3,700 K's and nearly 300 wins! What more does a pitcher need?
