FIRE JOE MORGAN: Predictable


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.

Very soon after Albert Pujols' 3-run bomb to win Game 5 of the NLCS, Bob Brenly could not wait to start praising David Eckstein for "not giving up" and hitting a dribbler to the left side.

Then, on Sportcenter, John Kruk made sure to give Eckstein credit, as well.

We get it. He's small.


Thanks to many readers for pointing out that something stupid was said NOT by Tim McCarver, who was mercifully nowhere near a broadcast booth last night. It was, in fact, the Brennaman-Lyons-Brenly team. I will happily acknowledge that the instant I heard something that made me angry, I assumed it was McCarver.

John Kruk remains culpable.

He's not just small, Junior. He's also scrappy and white. And he has the guts and hustle to dribble a ball through the hole to keep an inning going. You know what that takes? Incredible luck. That's another thing David Eckstein, along with every other major leaguer, occasionally has.
