SJWs destroy baseball Hall of Fame

Convergence has struck at baseball history, as SJW sportswriters vote to keep Curt Schilling out of the Hall of Fame:

Schilling is responsible for one of the great and iconic moments in baseball history. He was one of the all-time great postseason pitchers and had more than 3,000 regular-season strikeouts in his career.

Yet tonight, we’re going to find out if he has been passed over for the ninth time for a spot in the Baseball Hall of Fame. It’s going to be close. About 46 percent of the ballots have been made public and of those, Schilling is getting 75 percent of the vote. That number, 75 percent, is the minimum needed. But in the past, players on the borderline lose a percent or two when the ballots that weren’t made public are added in. 

In other words: Schilling probably won’t make it. And why is that? Because he likes Donald Trump. And because his support of things like what happened at the Capitol on Jan. 6 turns off baseball writers.

(UPDATE: Schilling did not make it. He received 71.1 percent.)

Cancel culture? Yes, if Schilling is canceled. He should definitely be in the Hall of Fame. But the baseball writers who vote on this want to be thought police, too.

This is a big moment for the Hall of Fame, and maybe for the whole idea of cancel culture. The Hall ballot says: “Voting shall be based upon the player’s record, playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, character, and contributions to the team(s) on which the player played.’’

Voters — longtime baseball writers — have been struggling over the “integrity, sportsmanship, character” part for years. That’s why Pete Rose isn’t in. He bet on the game, which directly affected the integrity of the sport. Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, accused in the steroid scandal, will likely not be voted in tonight either. They cheated the game.

But Schilling? He’s being kept out because the writers don’t like how he votes, how he thinks and how he talks. I’m not just guessing either. In the days before the Hall vote the past few years, this year included, writers have explained why they didn’t vote for Schilling.

As small and petty as this may be, if you haven't grasped that the society in which you grew up in is now over, this should be another wake-up moment for you. This is not our culture, it is Zero History culture. We cannot live with the converged and they certainly don't want to live with us.

Didn't bother watching much baseball this year after seeing every single player with a BLM warmup shirt, MLBxBLM etc. That's even as a lifelong dodgers fan, and they won the WS. Only in Satan's realm can black athletes who sign $300M contracts identify with the oppressed.

I'm a child of the 90s and the contrast between the world, society and value system I was born into and raised in and today's aberrant, dystopian society and degenerate culture is quite stark. Moral decline is evident. And undeniably tied to the decline in faith in and respect for traditional and one's elders.

The SJWs should be encouraged to follow their instincts and torch down the territory they've managed to appropriate:
- Disney should continue to cancel Luke Skywalker & promote their diverse and representative all-women Story Group
- Marvel needs to replace the Punisher's symbol with a flower and convert the Marvel cinematic universe (MCU) to the M-She-U, led by Brie Larson
- DC needs moar "Not Starfire" and hope for more Birds of Prey Movie
- Dr. Who should keep Chipnall
- Do not object when Star Trek plagarizes a giant, blue teleporting tardigrade kept by a gay bearded scientist. I am not making this up, Paramount had to steal that idea & was vociferously defended by its fans while pilfering that idea from an indie game.

If it is any consolation, Shilling is not as cancelled as Hank Aaron who took the Covid shot to make the brothers feel safe with it and died of Covid before he could get the second dose.

Plus, the bloody sock was a psy-op. He can be in my own personal hall of fame, even if it is just for that.

Schilling came to the city I went to college in and threw a bullpen session for Pawtucket when he was coming back from an injury for the Red Sox. I knew one of the field guys from back when I was playing D1 baseball in that city and he let me in to watch Schilling's bullpen work. It wasn't anything special but Schilling was very gracious and let me stand behind the mound. It wasn't more than 30-40 pitches but it was simply incredible watching him work through his pitch sequences. I wasn't a pitcher, but it was really interesting as a former minor league hitter to see how he worked considering at the time everyone thought the guy was a HoF pitcher even before he retired. Unfortunately it also reintroduced the painful awareness of why I didn't get to the major leagues!! I told him good luck coming back and that was it, but it was a neat experience.

I was around baseball for 24 years. Schilling in genuinely one of the really good guys.

Shilling was really a marginal allstar pitcher. On the low side for wins (216 wins), no cy youngs, 3.5 ERA.. outside of Boston he's not that well liked and known as a bit of a ass... if he were a +300 winner and have a cy young you can be outspoken but when on the edge, you can't go infront of congress and bad talk the sport and its players. Shilling was done well before he became a Trump supporter.

For Love of the Game, I hid undercovers listening to West coast adventures. Daily box scores challenged us as equations of almost infinite complexity, while Sunday's paper featured a compilation of current leader of stats mind-numbing number.

Our field of dreams was sandlot play all day.
Our fantasy leagues were Strato tabletop all night.
Sporting News was our baseball bible, Street & Smith our commentaries.

Spring training was followed as closely as groupings of girls at school dances. The boys of summer were us. Then...

Ball Four awakened us to the reality of men behaving badly while playing a child's game. Confessions of a Dirty Ballplayer dispelled any residual vestiges of an illusion of sportsmanship. Money Ball showed it all.

Third strike & you're out of excuses; so we fans stayed away.

Blogger Kentucky Packrat January 26, 2021 10:42 PM  

There might be baseball reasons to argue against Schilling, but the only reason the voters are going against him now is his post-game politics. I am a big believer that the decision to put someone in the Hall as a player is solely about their play, and should have no non-baseball considerations.

As much as agreeing with John Gruber even a little bit makes me want to wash my mouth out with battery acid, he is correct about one thing: Bonds, Clemens, and Pete Rose deserve to be in the Hall as players. Bonds and Clemens may have asterisks, but they're still Hall players based on their skills and stats.

Moreover, Pete Rose is a GOAT as a player, and it's a mockery of the Hall for him to not be in it. Rose was never going to get into the Hall as a manager, so getting banned (and staying banned) as a manager shouldn't influence him getting in as a player.

Blogger KBuff January 26, 2021 11:01 PM  

This stuff is encroaching on other levels of the game as well.
I started hearing complaints about 'the current president' last season on my 'old man' team before the games, and I put up with it since I really wanted to keep playing. I played in the league for 12 years, and this was never an issue before. (The Covid stuff also made things difficult, as our season was delayed, people reported players for not wearing a mask in the dugout, etc.) January 6, and some of my teammates are losing their minds over the 'insurrection'. At least they helped me decide whether I was returning to the team this season.

Blogger Delaware Blue Hen January 26, 2021 11:05 PM  

As a Phillies fan, this really stinks. MLB catering to the BLM this season was bad enough, and I had hoped that they may come around to their senses. However, this little stunt tells me that MLB hates their fans and that is not going to change. So I am going to return the favor, and I hope other fans will do likewise. Let the sports writer eat their own newsprint and see how well they survive without a fan base.

Furthermore, these snot-nose elites think they can live without us deplorables. Maybe Ace of Spades was correct (http://acecomments.mu.nu/?post=392283), the deplorables should return the favor. Let the SJWs fix their own cars, houses, and other odds and ends.

In Australia, we have Margaret Court - greatest female tennis player ever, plus she stands firm against sodomy. Every year around Australia Day, the media come at her hard - they want the arena named after her to be changed and all the awards and recognition she earned on the court stripped from her. That along with every Australia Day, they try to get the very date of Australia’s founding changed and they call it “Invasion Day”. I can actually live with that so a big, happy Invasion Day to everyone and to the benefits that Western civilisation brought to Australia, the best being the good news about Jesus Christ!!

Marc Jacobs is an actual gay Jewish Northeasterner who lives in Europe now, an actual rootless cosmopolitan. But, he's never hidden who he is. He was a flamboyantly gay Jew into retail fashion when he was a teenager.

He is an open fan of any successful retail fashion trend: he was photographed wearing Juicy Couture while jogging along the Seine, when JC was a wholly Los Angeles clothing manufacturing firm owned by two women.

He also licenses some of his designs to Vogue Knitting, so that regular people can afford to make some of his more iconic designs. I want to say he does the same for clothing designs, but I haven't checked.
