Jayson Stark: Barry Larkin is a Hall of Famer

I agree, totally.

Great player, an "uber" shortstop before the era of Garciaparra, A-Rod and Jeter. Great numbers, much better than his peers, a first-ballot Hall of Famer in my book.

He didn't get the hype, and neither did other shortstops. He didn't toot his own horn, take steroids or hang out with stars or starlets. He also didn't play in New York or Boston, and the Reds for much of his career weren't exactly an elite team. But he played hard and well every day, and his numbers don't lie.

I hope that those who can vote for the Hall of Fame will agree with Stark.
