FIRE JOE MORGAN: That book must really suck


Where Bad Sports Journalism Came To Die

FJM has gone dark for the foreseeable future. Sorry folks. We may post once in a while, but it's pretty much over. You can still e-mail dak, Ken Tremendous, Junior, Matthew Murbles, or Coach.

That book must really suck

Joe Morgan, on Three Nights in August, a book he apparently has read, unlike Moneyball:

"The one thing I did learn from that book is that managers don't get very much sleep, or at least Tony LaRussa doesn't, especially when they lose."

That was the only thing?

Now, of course, nobody should really care that managers don't get much sleep -- though it could be one of the reasons TLR makes terrible game-time decisions.

But still, for a guy who prides himself on his 2 decades of experience playing "The Game" at the big league level...don't you think Joe Morgan would already know that managers don't get too much sleep when they lose?
I have been going back and forth on this for a few days, but I think I have now decided to read this book, for the sole purpose of finding stupid things La Russa says about baseball and posting them on this blog. Am I a hero? I wouldn't go that far. Maybe let's call me "heroic."
You are now America's second-greatest hero after Pat Tillman.
