Ahh, the mixed metaphors just keep pouring out.

Jon Heyman of (aka the incredibly self-righteous guy named Jon who writes there) interviews Rich Maris, Roger Maris's son, and thinks that the home run "crown" will be returned to his family.

"We feel baseball is going to do the right thing in the end. They're going to do their investigation, and they're going to make a correction,'' Rich Maris said. "At some point it will all come out. The right decision will be made.''

Yes, the investigation... That will turn up ... Umm.... Something....

Then later Heyman writes...

The Marises and McGwire don't talk about what's happened since 1998, about all the anecdotal evidence to suggest McGwire took his father's record away by using steroids and about McGwire's date with Congress in March 2005. They don't need to.

Emphasis mine.

Anecdotal. From

1 a : of, relating to, or consisting of anecdotes b : ANECDOTIC 2 2 : based on or consisting of reports or observations of usually unscientific observers 3 : of, relating to, or being the depiction of a scene suggesting a story

I guess it's time for me to go get rid of every copy of the movie "61*" I own. And that's my favorite HBO film that features Tom Candiotti.

I liked Candiotti far more in "The Tuskegee Airmen."

He was the white guy.

He also had a terrible Hall of Fame ballot.
