    Unless I missed it (probably did so), I did not see a thread to commemorate the recent passing of Gene Michael: https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/g...ies-at-age-79/



    The Stick was instrumental in creating the World Series winners in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, and some of his players were still in the 2009 WS winning team. Thus, he had a hand in FIVE World Championships. John Schuerholz was just put into the HOF and, so far as I know, his teams won the WS only twice. On that basis, the Stick should be in the HOF. But for some reason, his name is never mentioned as a candidate for such an honor.
