No one was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame this year because all of the baseball writers out there chose to leave guys like Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds off their ballots yesterday. So, The New York Times decided to make a pretty bold statement about it today. Rather than simply run a story about how no one had been inducted into the HOF this year, they ran a blank cover for their sports section. There are no words or pictures, just the headline "And the Inductees Are…" followed by a big blank box.

That's quite a statement. Kudos to the NYT for making it.
