On Hall of Fame day, the BBWAA site got hacked

28 Comments

This is what the BBWAA website looked like as of a couple of minutes ago.  I’m assuming that they’ve dispatched a crack team of technical experts to fix the problem and restore order.

Of course since, by definition, the IT experts are computer geeks I’m guessing half the BBWAA membership is leaning over their shoulders insulting them and telling them that they need to get out of their mothers’ basements once in a while as they try to fix the problem. Might make the fix take longer.

Anyway, I may have given the BBWAA a lot of hell recently, but I swear, I didn’t do it.  Larger screen-cap of the hack-job below.

 

Angels sign Chris Young to one-year deal

The Angels went on a Chris binge yesterday. In addition to signing Chris Carter to a minor league deal they signed Chris Young — the outfielder Chris Young, not the pitcher Chris Young — to a one-year contract. Young will make $2 million with incentives that could make the pact more valuable.

Young, 34, hit .235/.322/.387 with seven home runs in a part-time role last season with the Red Sox. He’s historically been a plus defender and has handled all three outfield positions in the past, but he’s really a corner guy/platoon DH these days. Not that the Angels need a center fielder. Rumor has it that they have a pretty decent one.
