Twitter the night before Christmas MLB style

Standard

Author Note: I was on Twitter last year the night before christmas and all the web not an account was stirring when out like a flash, the Phillies official account started and the laughs began on Red and Rockies and MLB and then the Pirates tried to close it out but the Reds got to say “Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.”

Here is last year’s post:
Were you on Twitter? , If you were, you would have seen the MLB teams had some fun and the fans had some more fun reciting the famous Christmas poem by, Major Henry Livington Jr,  which also called Account of a Visit from Saint Nicholas. The official accounts of  Phillies, Red, Astros, Rockies, Cubs, Mariners, MLB and more got into the mix. So my gift to you on this the merriest of nights.

Fun fact Friday Biggio

Well in a few minutes, the celebration will begin at Minute Maid Park for Craig Biggio. When I heard that he started crying when he got the call that he was in the Hall of Fame. I just burst out into tears too. So for today fun fact some stats on HOF inductee Craig Biggio

Congratulations on getting in the Hall of Fame. You are truly deserving.

HOF 499 wasted votes

Well the results are in and per my doctors orders I will not be jumping or dancing for the excitement of Craig Biggio getting in the Baseball Hall of Fame! Congrats! While working for the Rangers, I met briefly Pedro,he was very nice. I am happy to see someone deserving in. Both Johnson and Smoltz are well all I can say is YES!

There is another side. To get in you must get 412 votes, and 499 votes were wasted on KNOWN PED users.  This is a stat we can’t ignore. There is always the argument that the players can be judged on their performance before they used PED ‘s. For me, if they did it for one day, then they forfeit the right to be in the Hall.

I don’t want someone in the Hall of Fame who has the thought.
” Ok I need something at any cost to make me better. I’m going to find a way to get around the rules.”
Of course your numbers are going to be great if you cheated.

In Vegas, if you count cards your kicked out. Insider trading is wrong and punishable with jail time. In baseball, you can still get into the Hall of Fame, there is something fundamentally wrong with this notion.

I’m officially offended that these degenerates are on the ballot, but I’m more offended is how anyone can vote for them.
STOP VOTING FOR THEM!
We must tell the world that Baseball’s Hall of Fame is filled with ballplayers who took a simple game and with hard work and great skill made the game something extraordinary.
