Jon Heyman’s actual Hall of Fame ballot might be full of insane contradictions and severe twists of logic – an elegant ballet of reason performed solely to allow Jack Morris safe passage into Cooperstown – but the tweet he sent out with the link is pure magic.

Don’t think, for one second, Heyman isn’t in on the joke. He laughs both with and at us with this one 140 character missive. He knows his flippant selections send the braying masses into overdrive – he doesn’t particularly seem to care. He just wants to have a good laugh along the way, like a cruel troll-faced puppeteer.

And you know what? I think he’s earned that right. Saints over taints is a masterstroke, deserving of all our praise and respect. You think Scott Miller is self-aware enough to coin such a beautifully absurd phrase? Not on your life. This is 100% Grade-A American Heyman, the finest cut in the land. Kudos to you, good sir.

    Well played Heyman.

  2. Love all the guys he’s “awaiting more evidence” on.

    I assume he has some gumshoes out there digging through 10 year old garbage bins.

  3. Any chance of a podcast any time soon youse guys? I mean I know there’s not much news right now, but just make some crap up. Seriously I’ve re-read an article about San Diego’s fences 5 Times and looked at the image in high definition 3 times, just to fill the huge baseball shaped hole in my empty life that is usually filled by Stoeten’s enormous mangina.

    In short, I’m jonesing for some baseball goodness to come in my ears.

  4. nice to know that Heyman is going to study taints more carefully in the future

  5. Woody Williams on the ballet!
    that takes me back

  6. I prefer Saints’ Taints myself.

  7. ‘It’s insane this guy’s taint! ‘
    one of my favourite clips from Mr Show

  8. I’d never vote for any player who tries to steal signs, steal bases, accepts free meals at restaurants, drives over the speed limit or doesn’t sign the first contract offered to them.

    All these things make a player less than the moral standard he should have for the HOF
