BBWAA.com visitors hoping to glean some knowledge about Wednesday's Hall of Fame announcement are being greeted by something else this Wednesday morning: Nonsensical, yet colorful, gibberish posted by opportunistic hackers who have taken over the writers' site.
I assume the task wasn't that tough, given that BBWAA.com normally looks like it was designed by my 18-year-old self on my Gateway computer (a graduation gift) in a University of Wisconsin dorm room in 1997. I also assume that web wizard Murray Chass knows exactly what to do in a case like this and that he'll restore the usual content by Wednesday's class unveiling at 2 p.m. ET.
(OK, maybe I'm a little less certain on that last point. Better stick around here for all your HOF news.)
UPDATE: The site has been restored.
