larkin had 2300+ hits, was a perennial all star, won an mvp and a world series, and was a leader on the field. i just don't know if its enough. heck, i don't know what the writers consider enough anymore. for me, though, i never went to a game to see him play. he wasn't a draw for me the way brett, schmidt, rose, maddux, pedro, piazza, etc. were. if it's any consolation, barry, i much prefer you to harold on tv, though.

let's turn two as we look to 2010
barry larkin's gig on the mlb network has me thinking about his hof candidacy. he is eligible in 2010. to me, he compares to alan trammell. a borderline case with a lot of people arguing from both sides.
