Jon Heyman doing work



Friend of the site Jon Heyman has spent his Saturday doing some hardcore investigative journalism. Because, you know, those darn Latinos in baseball...you just can't believe a thing they say, especially when it comes to their DOBs.

In all seriousness, Heyman's distrust of Pujols is utterly bizarre, and this seemingly monomaniacal pursuit of "the truth" about Pujols--especially now that Pujols has signed his $255 million megadeal--represents nothing more than a lame attempt to drag Pujols's good name through the mud. Combined with the other evidence we have of Heyman's "racial issues" (linked above), it also suggests that he harbors at least the seeds of the sort of paranoid xenophobia that comprised the ideological underpinnings of the "Obama Birther Movement."

I have no way of knowing this for sure, of course, but my gut tells me that Jon Heyman would have preferred baseball before 1947.
