FIRE JOE MORGAN: I agree with Rob Dibble.


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.

I agree with Rob Dibble.

Well, sort of. It's not exactly hard to decide you're anti-Palmeiro steroid use.

Friend: Hey Dibs, you're writing a column about Raffy's illegal drug use?
Dibs: You got it, friend.
Friend: For or against?
Dibs: Hmmm ...

And 4 hours later, we have our answer.

The fact that he was so adamant in front of Congress that he never used steroids makes it even worse. Now he has the nerve to say he wasn't careful enough and didn't intentionally take them. Why do you need to be careful if you've never taken anything illegal?

>> I think it's pretty clear that 1) Palmeiro is implying that someone, perhaps an Evil Trainer, slipped him illegal designer drugs in what he thought was a totally legal supplement and 2) Palmeiro is lying to cover his ass.

I have a lot more feeling on this subject because anytime Palmeiro's name came up I was one of his biggest backers. I was always telling people, 'Look at this guy, he's got these great numbers and he's not as big as some of the other players, he's not a hulking guy.'

>> The worst part of this whole scandal is that Rob Dibble has "a lot more feeling" on it. And nothing like exonerating a guy without evidence because "Look at him. He's not that big." Although I have been known in the past to do exactly that in the case of, say, Junior Griffey.

I and many other baseball fans feel very foolish today. To not be fighting mad that you came up positive... if it were my name, no union or lawyer could make me keep quite (sic) about it.

>> Funny typo.
