Beat Writer Should Be Beaten

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Hall of Fame hunting season has started a day early. Baseball fans got a jump on the yearly tradition when Ken Gurnick, the Los Angeles Dodgers beat reporter for MLB.com, revealed his ballot Tuesday. He’s voting for one guy and one guy only: former Detroit Tigers pitcher Jack Morris. Morris has flaws — a 3.90 ERA, for example,” Gurnick wrote ahead of Wednesday’s Hall announcement. “But he gets my vote for more than a decade of ace performance that included three 20-win seasons, Cy Young Award votes in seven seasons and Most Valuable Player Award votes in five. As for those who played during the period of PED use, I won’t vote for any of them.” Maddux, a four-time Cy Young Award winner, was believed to have a shot at unanimous selection in his first year on the ballot.

What the fuck did I just read? Some loser beat writer for the Dodgers won’t vote for Maddux because he played during the so called Steroid era? Give me a fucking break buddy. You may have thought this would be a 12 Angry Men situation and you would change everyone’s minds but guess what? The only thing people think about you is you are more of a prick than before. Jack Morris doesn’t even think he should be in the Hall. He had some Cy Young votes and some MVP votes, they will probably name awards after Maddux. If you want to vote for anyone at least throw a bone to Mattingly and his moustache. But come on. Greg Maddux has earned the unanimous election almost more than anyone else (Ruth, Seaver, Ripkin and N. Ryan also deserved it but I digress) and he should have that distinction. Always a classy guy, always a consistent pitcher, and clearly not a juicer. The guy weighed 135 pounds and painted the corners like god damn Picasso. This is why you shouldn’t allow certain people to vote for shit like this. Let the every man do the voting not some high and mighty beat writer who is bitter and still paying back student loans after 35 years because he thought he would revolutionize the sports writing world and ended up chasing a 20k a year salary with his fat wife and ugly kids. Fuck you Ken Gurnick. I will beat my dick like it owes me money to the thought of Maddux getting inducted into the HOF while you and Jack Morris finger blast each others assholes and cry yourselves to sleep. Ok that last part was harsh but this makes me mad.

Watch out Ken, this robber barren is coming for you
