Personally, I think it's pretty cool that Jack Curry has admitted that he's not intellectually capable of simultaneously grappling with more than two questions, especially during a time where baseball is entirely shut down.I guess it's too hard for Jack Curry to have voted for Ortiz because he was too busy "assessing" Bonds and Clemens. What a bunch of contrived BS. Who do these voters think they are?
"Besides Bonds and Clemens, I also voted for Scott Rolen, Todd Helton, Andruw Jones, Jeff Kent, Billy Wagner and Curt Schilling. Regarding the combustible Schilling and his offensive words, I continued to treat his candidacy with more respect than he has treated it. There are other players on the ballot who have been linked to performance enhancers like Gary Sheffield and David Ortiz and players who have been suspended over PEDs like Alex Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez, but I didn’t vote for any of them this time. Now that I have voted for the two players who became the poster boys for the Steroid Era, I will reassess those other candidates next year. This year was about grappling with the dilemma of Bonds and Clemens."
