Larkin unlikely Hall Candidate

Can't Say I am surprised

While I can't say it surprises me, the Enquirer did a poll of Hall voters NOT from Cincy that says Barry isn't a Hall qualifier. He doesn't have automatic stuff--like 3,000 hits, etc. He was MVP once, and played on one Series champion. Sadly, the article details that he was a dominant player at SS for a long time, but is a little bit of a tweener--maybe not as good offensively as Trammel/Ripken, nor as good defensively as Smith. It shouldn't diminish what I feel was a great career, but its a shame.
