Larkin: The Legend

From 1986 to 2004, Barry Larkin Solidified the shortstop Position in this town, A Moeller grad and hometown hero he was. This year Barry is on The Hall of fame ballot for the first time, and honestly we hope and pray he will not be on there next year. The question beckons, Is Barry Larkin a Hall of Famer. The answer is yes, But is Barry a first-ballot Hall of Famer. My answer once again is yes. Outside of Ozzie Smith, Cal Ripken, and possibly Derek Jeter, there has not been a better player at the position. Ozzie and Cal were both First Balloters and Jeter is a shoe in for the same title. So why Not Mr. Larkin, Barry Played his entire career in one place. He led the reds to a world series in 1990. Was the MVP in 1995, and he was a mild power threat, a Speedster on the bags, and A solid gold glove candidate every season. There is not much fault with this guy, except maybe for being injury prone, but he was still the clubhouse leader year in and year out. So my vote this year goes for Barry Larkin as a HoF'er. Now lets see how Dave Parker does and hopefully he will not be left out much longer either.
