- It would take one BBWAA member willing to lose his career to expose this fraudulent group and its practices. But that man, a man with guts, does not exist. Proving something about a person who chooses this as a career in the first place:
- "Mariano Rivera wasn't just robbed. He was mugged.
- He was pistol-whipped.
"He was bound and gagged and put under an interrogation lamp
- by a blind gaggle representing the Baseball Writers Assn. of America, who voted
overwhelmingly to make Bartolo Colon one of the most underwhelming Cy Young Award winners ever.
- "Ridiculous? It isn't just ridiculous,
- Mariano Rivera plays for the New York Yankees
- wasn’t held against him
- So that makes it spiteful, too.""
