Hey Hoynsie: Javier Vazquez?

Hey, Hoynsie: Javier Vazquez had a bad year with the Yankees, which means his price on the open market should be much less that the $11.5 million he made last season. He seems to pitch well in...

Paul Hoynes' Top Secret Communique

Trying to DM Mirabelli, I'm guessing.

Hey, Jay-Z!

I must admit that I'm addicted to reading the comments at the end of the stories about the Indians....

Why Are Some Fans So Angry?

155

This is not a demand for Hey Jaysie, or Hey Jay-Z, though either would be sweet. In fact, I think Hoynes is at his relative best here. But just read the questions he selects; you'd think we have a baseball team that is paid in scratch-off tickets and Bazooka Joe. Jean wants to know why it's "so hard" to take on additional payroll, as if it's anything more than Econ 101. Tom wants to know why the Sabathia trade should be viewed with anything other than scorn. Marty wants to know if the Dolans are just "using fans to make money." (Hey Marty: Of course they are! It's called capitalism!) So honestly, why are fans so angry? Do you guys know any fans who talk like this? They seem to be more than just uninformed; they're furious. (And just for laughs, please read the Joe Beimel question. So, so awesome).

Maybe the best Cleveland.com comment ever.

First of all, this is all sounding redundant. The article sucks and the commenters suck. But this is really outstanding, I promise. First, I love that Hoynes states as fact that Grady's batting average is "failing." Perhaps he meant to write, "falling." Um, let's hope. It's still silly. Second, this piece smacks of a writer who is just now coming around to the idea that batting average is, in fact, overrated. Third, just read the first comment. I mean, to equate someone saying, "Batting average is overrated," with someone saying, "Wins are overrated," well... Well done. Well done, indeed.
