I think it was Drake who said, "Bloggers is all in their feelings these days, all in their feelings these days." This SB Nation writer for Halos Heaven, the site's Los Angeles Angels blog, is probably mad that his team will pay Josh Hamilton $76 million to go play for the Texas Rangers. Hamilton, a man who's battled addiction since becoming a professional ball player, signed a 5-year/$125 million contract with the Angels in 2012. He struggled through his first two seasons in L.A. before having a cocaine and alcohol relapse is past offseason, which lead to his subsequent trade/dump off to the Rangers.

This is what happens when an overly emotional fan starts writing a blog under the guise of an actual writer. Granted, that happens all the time, and in many cases, coherent, sensible points are produced.

Not here. I've never seen someone take an innocuous quote THIS FAR: 

"Josh, when you die of a drug-related matter it won't be Arte Moreno's fault"—an actual sentence posted on SB Nation. 

The post has since been deleted, and SB Nation has yet to comment on how the hell something like this ended up being published.


If you want to read up on the post's author, the guy's a former art history professor, and he sounds like a total asshole

UPDATE: The guy who wrote the post has been fired. Tyler Bleszinski, founder of SB Nation/Vox Media, released a statement earlier this morning:

Last night a story was published on one of our team blogs that crossed the line between fanaticism and good taste.

We take pride in the fact that our team blogs are allowed to express themselves and their rabid following of their teams unencumbered by the traditional editorial process. It's what we're great at and what makes us unique. But when someone does cross that line of good taste, we need to make sure that our readership realizes that we don't embrace the culture of pure wild, wild west.

We took the post down and we have mutually agreed to part ways with the blogger in question. We thank him for his years of service to his community and look forward to opening a new chapter at that blog. We, in no way, endorse the post and realize that this could happen again in the future and we will always act when that line is crossed.
