I kept feeling as if Blair was the one hosting the roundtable on Friday not Friedman. Even though Friedman was the one choosing the topics, Blair seemed to be the one in control of the conversation and setting the tone for each topic.

So Blair has no problem voting for steroid users for the baseball hall of fame but he refuses to vote for someone (Gary Carter) he got in an argument with…………….maybe having the media vote for the hall of fame is not such a good idea after all

Blair’s “yeah but what about the hockey hall of fame!” thing was irrelevant. It reminded me of Ken Rosenthal responding to Shannon and Friedman saying that baseball’s free agent system is the most convoluted by asking them how many hockey free agents moved. What is with this hockey vs baseball thing? It seems to be more of a hostile dynamic than any other 2 groups of sports media.

Shannon and Friedman didn’t mention hockey at all in that interview but Rosenthal just reacted with “yeah, what about YOUR sport huh?” And Blair did the same thing. Nobody was saying that the baseball system was worse than the hockey one, merely that Friedman felt it was unethical to vote against somebody simply because you personally dislike them, but again, the response was “yeah, what about YOUR sport huh?”

Sorry, correction to the above, I meant how many hockey players were traded at the trade deadline.

Ami, I think Rosenthal’s comments tying in hockey was to relate to “you guys in hockeyland”, and not to “you guys who cover hockey”.

I was kind of surprised that they not jump on his comment and prove to Ken that there’s usually much more movement on NHL trade deadline.
Can’t argue that baseball’s can be more complicated, though. And more big name seem to get traded in baseball.

@Mike S, agree about your comment on Blair and his Hall of Fame voting reasoning. Talk to the fans and media in Montreal and The Kid is still amongst their all time favourites. I don’t know the details behind Blairs quote of Carter which he disputed, but that seems like a pretty minor issue to keep him out of hall of fame. That is not to say Carter was correct in accusing Blair of misquoting him, but just seems petty to me.

Found it a bit unbelievable also when Blair said he couldn’t remember who he voted for on this most recent HoF ballot.

Jeff Blair’s reason for not casting a Hall of Fame ballot for Gary Carter was that Carter had previously called Blair’s professionalism into question. In my opinion, a professional baseball writer should put aside their personal feelings about a player when they are considering the player’s Hall of Fame candidacy. Therefore, I think Blair missed the irony of the situation: because Carter had previously accused him of being unprofessional, Blair decided to act unprofessionally and leave Gary Carter off his (Blair’s) Hall of Fame ballot.

And Blair’s justification was “everybody else does it.”

I often said “everybody else does it”: the difference was that I was eight-years old at the time! 🙂
