Obscure Login: Deadspin collected all the whining and it is glorious...
ladodger34: Dinobot: I dont remember jon heyman throwing a tantrum at whichever writer voted for Gil Meche for the HOF,Jon Heyman is a jackass more often than not. He's really good at getting scoops, but his opinion type columns are usually pompous.I got in a twitter cat fight with Tracy Ringolsby the day that Ken Gurnick turned in that sorry assed Jack Morris ballot. I wonder how he felt about LeBetard's ballot? And to be fair, Mr. Ringolsby had a great ballot.
RickyWilliams'sBong: I'm not a fan of his show, but my respect for him went up exponentially last night when I saw the story on Deadspin.Baseball writers are mostly old, sanctimonious assholes. And, as he noted, they're laughably uninformed. Looking forward to hearing the nonsense they'll throw at him.
INeedAName: Scott Garceau (Baltimore Sports Radio) talked about it this morning and made a really good point that I'm totally going to butcher.The MLB HoF is broken. There are no set criteria, and most of the people involved in the selection process are out of touch with baseball. It has become an old white guy's club and significantly lacks credibility. While he didn't agree with how Le Betard did it, he agreed with the sentiment.
