    WTF Verducci?

    I was watching MLB Network this morning and they were talking to one of the sportswriters Tom Verducci who voted for Jeff Bagwell who is one of the players that is seperate from Clemens and Bonds but there is still suspicion on. Then when they showed his list Piazza was not there. He then preceeded to say that he wasn't going to vote for Bagwell because a couple of years ago he stated that he understood why some players would use steroids. Ok, so then he says he gave Bagwell the benefit of the doubt and voted for him anyway but then in the same breath says there was no way Piazza was getting his vote. Please explain to me how this makes any bit of sense except that Verducci is playing the puppetmaster here? Bagwell saying that is more of a reason to be suspicious on him than Piazza IMO.

    Outside of working his butt off to be the best offensive catcher in baseball, nothing. If those clowns don't hit 60-73 homeruns like it was nothing Piazza is a first ballot Hall of Famer plain and simple but now there are these sportswriters like Verducci who has said he will never vote for a guy who has proven to use steroids or where there is still that gray area where he might have. 17.2% is alot to get when you have these voters who are deadset in their ways.

    Did nobody ask him what he has on Piazza? That is shoddy journalism.

    They said nothing to question him. Verducci's word is the gospel on that channel. I don't know how these guys get empowered this much to determine who is worthy enough to enter the Hall.

    Ok but Mike was at least more likely to be injected than Kaley Cuoco in this scenario

    Very good but I am sure she has been injected many times just not by me.

    So now I'm adding Tom Verducci, to the no read/no listen list, hence forth to be known as the Hall of Idiocy. Adam Rubin, Ken Davidoff and now Tom Verducci. Please, any others would be appreciated.

    I don't think anyone can go through an entire season without reading Adam Rubin. What beat writer -- that travels with the team -- do you prefer? Rubin is the first and pretty much only writer I read 365 days/year and as someone who dislikes most journalism, he is the most tolerable. I think you should reconsider.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson
