It's a joke that a man who did so much for players isn't in the hall of fame

Read he had passed in the POST today.   I didn't realize he was 95.   I was taken aback.   I do agree with your HOF point.   He was a pioneer.     I don't see it happening though.   He pretty much nailed it in the comments quoted in this article.

Miller contributed to the players' welfare. The Lords of Baseball will tolerate a Loria, or a Bob Short, but not Marvin Miller.
