MLB Bullets Says "The Tribe Has Spoken"

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Dan Le Batard gave his vote to Deadspin to make a point, so the BBWAA finally found a reason to take someone's vote away from them. We talk about changing the Hall of Fame voting process and we take a look at baseball uniforms. The Marlins president is stuck on an island.

It was announced today that Columbia University will no longer award the Pulitzer Prize to any work of journalism written after 1998. "In light of the Stephen Glass and Jayson Blair scandals," said Chairman Paul Tash, "as well as countless smaller acts of plagiarism and fabrication, we can no longer vote for anyone from the 'plagiarism era.' Without being able to tell which writers are dirty and which aren't, we've decided not to honor anyone. After all, winning the Pulitzer Prize is an honor, not a right. When you get an endowment from a newspaper baron who's been dead for a hundred years, then you can vote for whomever you want."

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. At least it better be. Seriously. Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.
