The latest entrant, Cliff Corcoran: http://www.si.com/mlb/2015/12/01/jason-heyward-free-agency-whats-he-really-worth


Absolute moron, he's on the take from Heyward's agent, or his poor writing has necessitated a terrible/controversial piece like this from management in order to increase "click-throughs".  I watched Jason Heyward for years in Atlanta and I can tell you he's a great defensive player and weak with the bat. All of these new "advanced metrics" are starting to make the stat-chasers look retarded.

Heyward should be much better with the bat. I saw him as a rookie and he could absolutely mash. I have a gut feeling that the couple of bean balls he took have mentally affected him.

It's the latter.  No one can write articles like "Zack Greinke Is a Heck of a Pitcher".  Everything has to be click bait now.  Every article is "Why the Worst Player in the League is Actually the Best!!!" and "You Won't Believe What This MLB Star Did With This Supermodel!!!" (answer: he said hello).  The sad part is, it's "real" news too, not just sports.  Journalism is in the toilet.

I also believed it to be the latter. But he's still an awful journalist in general. He just didn't necessitate mention in my ever-increasing sportswriter HOS (previous inductees include All-Timer Chris Mortenson, Gary Myers, Mike Lupica, Kevin Kernan off the top of my head) until this complete piece of nonsense.
