Like Common once said, “Everybody gotta eat, right? It’s the food, baby!”
Today In Stupid Ballots: Hey, remember when we talked about Randy Galloway’s really stupid ballot? I got another one for you, and it’s even dumber.
MLB.com writer Marty Noble takes the cake this time. I always talk about the dumb writer who voted for Jack Morris alone when he had at least ten other guys who are worthy of being in Cooperstown (because I am always and forever salty), but this makes that guy look relatively sane.
What did Noble do that was so stupid?
In addition to voting for the obvious choice in Junior Griffey, dude voted for Jeff Kent. And only Jeff Kent. And called Jeff Kent the Babe Ruth of second basemen.
Wow. I’d like the ghost of Frankie Frisch to come haunt the hell out of Marty Noble for such a stupid comment. Robbie Alomar and Ryne Sandberg can team up and take turns kicking his ass. Hell, Bobby Doerr is almost 100 years old and I would hope that he would at least flip him off.
At least Randy Galloway’s ballot, as silly as it was, had his second vote be a guy that many people honestly believe should be in the Hall. This? I mean… Jeff Kent? Time for my favorite gif here.
I will agree with him on one thing, though – Junior’s swing was beautiful.
And speaking of beauty…
Carlos Gomez, Professional Cheese Grater: I knew that CarGo went hard, but damn. Dude has some serious stomach muscles going on.
I have often seen Gomey and his taut tummy before when he was with Milwaukee, but this is crazy. I’m over here like the Pillsbury Doughboy and Gomey is using his abs as stone masonry tools.
