‘Great American Baking Show’ Season 3 Winner: Johnny Iuzzini’s Actions Hurt All of Us

  ‘Great American Baking Show’ Season 3 Winner: Johnny Iuzzini’s Actions Hurt All of Us Vallery Lomas, the winner of Season 3 of “The Great American Baking Show,” addressed the show’s sudden cancellation after allegations of sexual harassment against one of its judges, Johnny Iuzzini, in a Facebook Live video Thursday. “It’s important that we take a moment — our society has a moment to heal from this because the actions of Johnny, not only have they hurt the women that were in the kitchen with him, but it has spread to the other contestants, the crew, and myself,” Lomas said. “His actions have caused us harm as well by us not having a chance to continue to share our love of baking with all of you.

Johnny Damon isn't happy with his Hall of Fame chances.

The former outfielder, who retired in 2012, is on the 2018 Hall of Fame ballot, but it could easily be his last year of eligibility. Early results show Damon receiving votes on only 1.2 percent of ballots, and unless the uncounted ballots don't improve his number to 5 percent, he won't be eligible in 2019.

Speaking to MLB Network Radio, Damon said his numbers are good enough to earn Hall credentials, and that his lack of All-Star appearances (two) are overblown.

"That's just something you can't control. Going into it I kept hearing, 'Well he only went to two All-Star Games,'" Damon said. "Well, for the most part it's a popularity contest. I feel like I should've been to seven, maybe eight with leading the league in runs scored, and hits, and stolen bases at the All-Star Break, but you know what? Some guys are having better years that year. I played the game absolutely clean, a bunch of those guys made the All-Star team over me."

Damon added that he feels his numbers are superior to players who have already been elected, and that he was "way better than a leadoff hitter" who's a lock to be a future first-ballot entrant. He didn't specify who, but former teammate Derek Jeter will be on the ballot in 2020.

Between stints with the Kansas City Royals, Oakland Athletics, Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, Tampa Bay Rays, and Cleveland Indians, Damon hit .284/.352/.433 for his career with 235 home runs, 522 doubles, 109 triples, and 408 stolen bases. He won two World Series championships. The first came in 2004 with the Red Sox, and he won again in 2009 as a member of the Yankees.

Damon also demonstrated an innate ability to stay on the field. Over 16 consecutive seasons, from 1996 through 2011, he never played in fewer than 141 games.

Johnson Bademosi unleashes an Oscar-worthy flop

  Johnson Bademosi unleashes an Oscar-worthy flop New England Patriots cornerback Johnson Bademosi was the victim of a vicious sideline spike by Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson following an incomplete pass from New York Jets quarterback Bryce Petty. With the Jets down 21-3 late in the third quarter, Petty targeted Anderson to no avail as New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler had tight coverage and pushed him out of bounds. Frustrated, Anderson spiked the ball hard off the ground, bouncing it right off the face mask of Bademosi who was standing on the sideline trying to keep warm.

Despite his best efforts to hang on and compile hits, Damon didn't pass any of the big- number thresholds that usually grant entrance. The reality is Damon could fall short of the five percent minimum that's required for him to remain on the ballot Good career, fun guy, but not Hall - worthy .

Damon has done that very well throughout his career, as well. The two-time World Series champ reached the So, we now know he has the numbers to be considered Hall - worthy , but I Damon was a leader in the clubhouse while the Boston Red Sox attempted to break the curse of the Bambino
