Juan Gonzalez, unlike Morris, didn't spend 14 years as one of the best players at his position.

In 1991 Viola is at the peak of his career and a lefty to boot and who does Tom Kelley want to anchor the pitching staff and pitch game 7 if needed? Jack Morris. Nuff said.

Problem with that argument is Viola wasn't on the 1991 Twins--he left after 1989.

I have no problem with Morris making the HOF, although I'll confess my bias towards native Minnesotans and Twins players. I'm too lazy to look up all the stats, but he reminded me somewhat of Catfish Hunter, a HOFer whose WAR was 32.5, in the sense that he would win the game 2-1 if that's what was needed or 12-8 if the offense gave him a good lead. Really not concerned with stats as much as beating your ass, and seldom needed his teammates to bail him out.
