Blogging anti-blogger Murray Chass has written one of his patented half-lucid anti-blog blog posts about the Hall of Fame. Near the end of the post, he dodders over to the subject of his own voting habits. This one's a treat:

Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.
Joe Morgan may be gone, but his ignorant spirit lives on. Murray Chass and Phil Rogers wonder how in the world Hernandez could be the best pitcher if he didn't have the most wins. Yes, we're still having this damn discussion.
