Perry: The Wiki-war on Kevin Towers has begun

Faulty Towers…as his Wiki page goes Sybil!

As noted earlier in this very space, I’m not a fan of the recent three-way Indians-Reds-Diamondbacks swap from the Arizona perspective. Of course, I am but a dispassionate observer whose sensible remove provides him with a breathtaking view, which is why my distaste for Arizona’s haul has not moved me to vandalize the Wikipedia page of D-backs GM Kevin Towers. Others, though, were so inspired. Let us admire their handiwork before those humorless slaves to truth do away with it:

To hear this saboteur tell it, Towers, a Padre down to the marrow, is conducting these moves with malice aforethought. Hmmm. ...

And people say that Wikipedia is inaccurate.

These kinds of wiki-vandalizations usually last less than a day.
This vandal was persistent, so his two attempts lasted 39 minutes and 9 hours. The page was protected after that.

I'm rather fond of C.B. Bucknor's page.

My favorite Wikipedia vandalization (totally SFW)


I thought Raymond Carver wrote Spot the Dog.

Why did they take it down? It seems pretty accurate to me.

When I saw that last night, (my time) I thought you wrote it. ;)

We will find the youngster who did this, and trade them for a bucket of baseballs, and a 40 year minor leaguer.

Which, to be honest, s pretty much what we do most days anyhow.
