Today In Tribe History: October 15, 1997

The Cleveland Indians offense is notably absent all game long until the eleventh inning, when a solo home run from Tony Fernandez gives the Tribe a 1-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles to send the team to their second World Series in three years. The Indians muster just three hits in the game, two coming from the hero Fernandez, who sent the deciding shot over the high wall in right...

Dan Le Batard's ballot opens up a Pandora's Box of journalistic questions

Ballot pic via Deadspin Dan Le Batard's decision to turn his baseball Hall of Fame ballot over to Deadspin and the subsequent one-year suspension he earned from the Baseball Writers' Association of America has sparked plenty of reaction, including debates about how good the resulting ballot was, the nature of the Hall of Fame itself, the place of the BBWAA, Deadspin as a site...

Hall Of Fame: ’90 Braves Best ‘90s Mets…Again

You can still hear the clattering. The Hall Of Fame vote – made public almost a full day ago – has elicited much moaning and shouting about how flawed the process is. The words floated about are “broken,” “unworkable” and “antiquated.” You won’t hear any argument here; your intrepid columnist is about to join the clatter. An MSM member as estimable as Dan LeBatard...

Le Batard Outrage Proves Again How Media Perceives Fans

Yesterday's Hall Of Fame announcement came with the usual controversy and debates over who was and wasn't elected, and who did and did not receive votes.

What Did You Expect?

I got dumped in college at a party. My mom's response was "well, what did you expect?" It seemed harsh at the time, but looking back I think "yup, should've seen that coming a mile away". This is why whatever outrage I might have normally had about Mike Piazza not making it, like the outrage I had last year, has been muted. Because it gets tiring writing the same thing year after...

Dan Le Batard is the BBWAA member who gave his Hall of Fame vote to Deadspin

The awful, terrible, shameful BBWAA member that provided Deadspin with a Hall of Fame vote isn't an old voter without his pulse on the sports world anymore - it was Dan Le Batard of ESPN. Le Batard's rationale behind giving up his ballot was sound and logical. You can read the whole thing over at Deadspin, but this is the money paragraph. "I don't think I'm any more qualified...
