BASEBALL WRITERS’ ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA gave Hall of Fame recognition to ... a writer.

BASEBALL WRITERS’ ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA lacks "integrity, sportsmanship, character".

I specifically searched for the criteria for the Hall of Fame award that the writers annually give to each other: J. G. Taylor Spink.  I wondered if the writers applied the same standard to themselves that they and the Hall apply to the players: "integrity, sportsmanship, character".  No.

That's a link to the Hall of Fame website.  I never heard of this guy. I have nothing against him personally but shouldn't the writers have abstained from honoring one of their own after stiffing the players?

Have they no sense of decency?  Have they no shame?
