(WSCR) The New York Times saw an opportunity and took it.

In the wake of yesterday’s baseball Hall of Fame vote, where no players were voted in by baseball writers for the first time since 1996, the New York Times ran a blank sports page.

“Wayne Kamidoi, our boundary pushing art designer came up with the idea, and Jay Schreiber our baseball editor saw the chance to capture the very old, very dispiriting story of steroids in baseball in a freshly powerful way,” sports editor Joseph Sexton told the Sherman Report. “Yes, it was not a surprise that Bonds and Clemens didn’t make it. But felt like history had spoken. How to convey that to our readers? I think we did it — a striking, profound emptiness.”
