It's possible that Sale will get a few votes. There were baseball writers that left Henry Aaron off their Hall of Fame ballots the only year he was eligible for election.
Yes, you have hit the nail on the head, a lunatic fringe website arguing something that was disproven centuries ago is equitable with ESPN, arguably the most cited sports journalism outfit in the country.
Threads like these can be maddening, but it's always fun watching somebody try and dig out of a hole they have buried themselves in.
