Senile, Pathological Liar or Just Rattled? You be the Judge!!!

I am sick of writing about Lynn Henning. You are tired of reading about Lynn Henning. But the DSR just can’t ignore the lunacy/lying of the News baseball writer any more than TMZ can neglect to cover a photo of Lindsay Lohan’s cooch while the actress is coming out of a limousine.

And not in a million years could I turn a blind eye to this latest episode. This is what the dementia patient stated on Twitter last night in response to a needle about Joba Chamberlain’s $1 million contract — approximately $49 million less than Henning predicted.

Ok. So Chamberlain had a better HISTORY than Andrew Miller going into 2014?

In 2012, Miller had a FIP of 3.17 and a WHIP of 1.19. Chamberlain? FIP of 4.01 and a WHIP of 1.55.

In 2013, Miller had a FIP of 3.015 and a WHIP of 1.37. Chamberlain? FIP of 5.64 and a WHIP of 1.74.

Any success Chamberlain had enjoyed in his career — and there wasn’t much of that at all — occurred PRIOR to the slob having Tommy John surgery.

Meanwhile, the 2006 first-round pick of the Tigers had developed into a very nice bullpen piece.

But fuck statistics. Here are some Tweets from Henning AFTER the Tigers signed Chamberlain LAST YEAR.

Now, let’s re-visit last night’s missives from this nut job:

On December 12, 2013 ……

Why Tigers’ interest in Joba Chamberlain would be their most confusing pursuit of the off-season: WHIPs the past two years: 1.55, 1.74.

On February 26, 2015 ……

And, in early June, Chamberlain — who had a better history — had better numbers. Doesn’t matter to someone.

Can you imagine dying on this hill — when there is evidence that completely contradicts the point you are trying to make — simply because you cannot admit you were WRONG?

Oh, yeah. I am the PATHOLOGICAL one.

And if you think that, due to the above insanity, the voters got it wrong in awarding the 2015 Worst Detroit Sports Media Personality title to Scott Anderson instead of this delusional windbag, “The Virginal Manatee” counterpunched …..

Obviously, neither of the combatants heard the bell.

Update as of February 27th at 5:00pm

After this article dropped, one of the DSR’s loyal readers, Mihir Bhatnagar, decided to fuck with Senile Henning.  You might know Mihir from his bombing of a Ryan Ermanni live remote with a “Fafafooey”… We like to refer to the 19-year-old Michigan student as an “Extreme Fan” and not a Wack Pack member. Anyway, after getting blocked by Henning for the Twitter exchange above, Mihir decided to email the kook and feign like he didn’t know who Jiff Myst was. Enjoy ….. CLICK TO ENLARGE 11025838_10205634277393219_5375467971391329315_o Some of my favorite Henning quotes from that missive?

 Am very sorry, but unfortunately, we deal with a constant heckler and hassler who uses bogus accounts to conceal his attacks, and given the focus  on the Chamberlain issue, I assumed it was him.  And I hope you’ll forgive me. This guy we’re talking about uses every trick he can to sabotage us. He’s a person in need of help. I simply, and wrongly, concluded he was using your account.


Yep, I am a regular Penn and Teller of bamboozling the Detroit sports media, let me tell ya. I hear the greatest trick Joff Mess ever pulled off was convincing the world there was no Juff Must. I am in need of help? Well, yeah … probably. The magnanimous Henning not only UNBLOCKED Mihir, he also FOLLOWED him which led to this awesome exchange of Direct Messages. Ya gotta believe me …..
Shit. I went from “in need of help” to “disturbed” in less than five minutes. Yikes.
Oh …. that was ANOTHER Jeff Moss who broke the Jim Harbaugh to U of M story. The guy credits me for everything from masterminding the 9/11 attacks to bankrupting the city of Detroit, but the Harbaugh stuff was ANOTHER Jeff Moss? I am dying …..
I am going to need the good folks at Twitter to allow more than 140 characters in my bio after those daggers. “Just a sick, sick guy.”
Lynn just got me in the mood for some Metallica!!!!! 10428098_10152884264039934_2085801769422553391_n10994451_10152884271864934_8315408538799078365_n
Saved by the Phil Laciura!!!!! And that was that. At some point, somebody must have tipped Henning off that he was being pranked (I’ve got my eyes on Tony Paul) and he HowAboutBlocked Mihir …… AGAIN.
Well, it was fun while it lasted!!!!!
Since it’s Friday and everyone’s in a good mood, I will leave you with one of my classic Lynn Henning search-and-destroy missions. (Wow.) The time he wrote that the Minnesota Twins’ signing of Joel Zumaya was the steal of the Hot Stove League. No, seriously. Let’s just post all of Henning’s HILARIOUS Zumaya Tweets from 2011 and 2012 while we are at it …..






If you are as senile as Henning, let me remind you what occurred after Zumaya signed with the Twins. He threw like two pitches in a bullpen session, got hurt and retired.


Have a nice weekend, everyone!!!!!
