The New York Times Epic Hall of Fame Report

Jan 10, 2013, 9:16 AM EDT

To be honest, it’s all been said already, so this is probably the best way for a newspaper to report yesterday’s non-doings:

    Sad, just sad

    • dcfan4life - Jan 10, 2013 at 9:45 AM

      But funny way of projecting it.

    • fanofevilempire - Jan 10, 2013 at 11:17 AM

      close down the HOF, as soon as possible.

    Someone run the stats on how many trees died for that page

    • El Bravo - Jan 10, 2013 at 10:35 AM

      Actually it saved ink and killed no more trees than normal. The page would have normally been used for something else with more ink on it.

      • El Bravo - Jan 10, 2013 at 10:36 AM

        And yes, I’m aware that this comment was douchey.

      • DelawarePhilliesFan - Jan 10, 2013 at 11:03 AM

        For the record – it’s all cheeky to begin with, as I am pretty sure the Times is 100% recycled paper.

        But no, it does not save paper to have a gargunga blank page. I doubt 3/4 of a page would have gone to that one story, so unless they are cutting other stories, using all that extra space required additional paper. That was recycled to begin with :)

      • El Bravo - Jan 10, 2013 at 11:07 AM

        That’s it. I’m calling my source at the Times.

    “To be honest, it’s all been said already”

    I bet you can’t you type this with a straight face, since you’ve been copying and pasting the same story for months. The worst part for me is its not even a baseball story, its a story on who your better than other writers.

    • Jeremy Fox - Jan 10, 2013 at 9:38 AM

      Um, I’m pretty sure no one getting elected to the HoF is a baseball story…

    • mrfloydpink - Jan 10, 2013 at 9:44 AM

      “its a story on who your better than other writers.”

      Huh? Pretty awesome when you can make, count ’em, THREE basic grammar errors in the span of six words. I suggest a review of:

      1. it’s vs. its
      2. who vs. how
      3. your vs. you’re

      Use the language properly, and your remarks might seem more intelligent.

      Actually, on further review, maybe not.

    Well, it was a slow sports day otherwise in NYC. Both local roundball teams off, still no hockey, no football hirings, no Rex Ryan press conference, and no signings of an outfielder or catcher.

    • chill1184 - Jan 10, 2013 at 9:40 AM

      The Knicks play tonight and Anthony is suspended for the game

      • sdelmonte - Jan 10, 2013 at 11:58 AM

        Tomorrow they will run a similar photo of Melo dunking.

  5. Jeremy Fox - Jan 10, 2013 at 9:36 AM

    That front page is genius. *slow clap*

    • natstowngreg - Jan 10, 2013 at 2:04 PM

      Indeed. A fine example of brevity being the soul of wit.

  6. mrfloydpink - Jan 10, 2013 at 9:45 AM

    Before the NYT sports section gets too high and mighty, let’s not forget that these are the people who employed Murray Chass for 30 years. Thus allowing him to earn the ballot he used on Jack Morris and nobody else.

    The New York Times should just do that everyday with every page of their newspaper.

    • kirkvanhouten - Jan 10, 2013 at 10:25 AM


      There is a difference between the main content of a newspapers and the papers editorial writers. The main part of the New York times is pretty typical of virtually any newspaper, and spend a lot doing original reporting that ends up in every other newspaper in the world. You can hate Paul Krugman all you want, but the stories in the NYT aren’t really that different from what you’d find the Des Moines Register (just more original reporting and much more content)

      You know what I read? The Wall Street Journal. I’m a pretty liberal guy, but they do pretty good financial reporting. The running joke of the Wall Street Journal for us liberals is “Do the WSJ editorial writers actually read the WSJ?”.

      • jimeejohnson - Jan 10, 2013 at 9:27 PM

        Liberals and Conservatives: opposite sides of the same coin, just like the Wall Street Scammer and NY Crimes.

    The vote was perfect – Perfect because they’re all guilty – Either they were juicing or they knew who was juicing and did nothing about it – So no one gets in – Next year they’ll get around to sorting out who has legitimate claims, but this year the message is plain and simple – You did a bad thing – Don’t do it again.
