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.

Reds at Brewers: Did This Guy Even Glance at a Stat Sheet Before or During the Game?

The Reds' FSN Midwest backup play-by-play guy (Jeff Piecoro?), in the bottom of the ninth:

Edwin Encarnacion is one of the hardest workers on the team ... Let's see if that helps him here against one of the top closers in the National League, Derrick Turnbow! (empahsis mine)

Turnbow on the year:
5.88 ERA
1.52 WHIP

Turnbow, July 2006:
22.24 ERA
3.35 WHIP
.388 (!) BAA

That's right. In the month of July, hitters are batting .388 against Derrick Turnbow. That's all hitters.

Later, after Turnbow walked Encarnacion:

If you're Ned Yost, what do you do here? Do you stick with your All-Star closer?
(emphasis mine)

Yost immediately inserted Francisco Cordero.

It's not just one bad outing, either. DT has been brutal for a while. And on the road this year, he's 1-5, and has given up 14 ER in 14 IP. That's hard to do when you're a closer.

He was an All-Star, though, so the guy was technically right.
